Hedwig and the Angry Inch New York Tickets

Hedwig and the Angry Inch New York Tickets

Hedwig and the Angry Inch Belasco Theatre Schedule

Neither the Brooklyn Bridge, nor the Berlin Wall can keep audiences from buying tickets for the musical comedy, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, starring Neil Patrick Harris and Lena Hall. Harris continues to receive positive reviews for his performance as a transgendered punk rocker in the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. It is not surprising that his co-star, Lena Hall, is a 2014 Tony nominee for Best Featured Actress too. Right now, you may enjoy this cult classic at the Belasco Theatre. The run time is 100 minutes and is so captivating that one does not even notice there isn't an intermission. While Hedwig and the Angry Inch is considered one of the Best Musical Revivals, it is intended for a mature audience and may not be appropriate for young ones aged 12 and under. Adult audiences will not want to miss this opportunity to see this fabulously revived musical that presently has 8 Tony Award nominations.


Plot-- The Journey of Hansel to Hedwig

The Tony Award-winning Director Michael Mayer brings the current production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch to New York audiences in its first Broadway stage at the Belasco. It is a revival of the 1998 rock musical written by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask. The musical has won numerous awards and was even adapted into film by Mitchell in 2001. The story focuses on Hedwig, who tells the story of her life from being born Hansel to becoming Hedwig as the leading member of the musical act that follows a more prominent rock star Tommy Gnosis. The audience is watching her musical act on stage, which is also Hedwig's monologue. The story expressed on stage is interesting as it tells of Hansel who is "girly-boy" living in East Berlin who falls in love with an American soldier named Luther. The two make plans to marry by taking down the wall between them that is one's sex. Hansel becomes a woman through a botched surgery and necessary paperwork to marry Luther and move out of Soviet Berlin to Kansas. Having been left without the intended results of a successful surgery, Hansel (now Hedwig) is scarred and eventually left by her husband for man the same day it is broadcasted that the Berlin Wall is coming down. Germany is reunited, as her relationship breaks apart. In an effort to move forward, she forms a band with Korean-born military wives called "The Angry Inch." Hedwig makes friends with a young teenage boy with whom she writes songs and even gives the stage name "Tommy Gnosis." He becomes famous by using the music the two wrote together after having left her. Hedwig and the Angry Inch focus on their music, playing small clubs without the international success of her lost rock star love, Tommy. There is certainly a shout out to both punk rock and philosophy, as seen by the reference to Aristophanes' address in Plato's Symposium and even in the stage name "Gnosis" (meaning "knowledge").


Hedwig and the Angry Inch Trivia

The story was inspired by John Cameron Mitchell's time spent living in West Berlin, as a child of a military family, prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Originally, the character Hedwig was inspired by a babysitter, who was a German woman who was the divorcee of an U.S. military officer, and allegedly a prostitute in her Kansas trailer park. Initially, Hedwig was intended to be the supporting character, but eventually evolved into the lead after being introduced in the drag-punk bar scene. Instead of going the traditional theater route, Mitchell and Trask elected to keep it edgy and full or rock-n-roll by performing in clubs.

There are many stories one can share about the beginnings of Hedwig and the Angry Inch performing in the club scene that make it unique and special prior to its Off-Broadway debut in 1998. One fact that will remind audiences of its unassumingly fabulous beginnings is Hedwig's wig was initially constructed from toilet paper rolls and synthetic blond hair.


Hedwig Cast: Neil Patrick Harris and Lena Hall

Neil Patrick Harris showcases his talent as Hedwig in this Broadway performance, a role much different than his early days on television as Doctor Doogie Howser and in recent years as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother. There is much more to Harris than these two well-known characters showcase, making it well worth following his career as an American actor, singer, producer and director. Harris is joined on stage by Lena Hall as Yitzhak. In addition to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Hall is starring in the Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots. Similar to Harris, Hall has spent her entire life on and off the Broadway stages and performing across the globe. The two are joined on stage by the band that includes: Justin Craig, Matt Duncan, Tim Mislock and Peter Yaowitz.


Creative Team: John Cameron Mitchell, Stephen Trask and Michael Mayer

The cast is put in the spotlight by an impeccable creative team that are also recipients of 2014 Tony Awards nominations. John Cameron Mitchell (Book), Stephen Trask (Music, Lyrics & Orchestrations) and Michael Mayer (Director) are all accomplished creatives with a number of prestigious awards under their belts. The revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch is not one to miss as it is reunited with its missing piece—the Broadway stage.
