Hedwig and the Angry Inch San Diego Tickets
Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a comedic/dramatic rock musical created in 1998 by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask. Even though this award-winning show has been around for years and has a substantive cult following, it wasn’t until 2014 that it finally hit Broadway. With tours in West End, UK, Brazil, Spain and more, Hedwig and the Angry Inch has had a long history of success – in both the film and stage industries.
The story follows the fictional rock icon known as Hedwig – previously known as Hansel – after his botched sex change. Finding refuge in America after his escape from East Germany, Hedwig’s journey begins with a tale of heartbreak and love. When her husband, Luther, leaves her, she soon finds solace in Tommy Speck – a Christian teenager who is in crisis. However, when Speck steals all of Hedwig’s original songs, he becomes an unprecedented, famous rock star, leaving Hedwig alone, depressed and angry. Hedwig’s journey takes a turn for the worse as her band, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, is forced to play for scraps. The musical continues with Hedwig’s attempt to gain notoriety, work through her gender identity and find her place in the world.
With the stage adaptation receiving star reviews left and right, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a Broadway show not to be missed. Winning a total of 13 awards, including multiple Tony Awards, such as Best Revival of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, Best Leading Actor – awarded to Neil Patrick Harris – and more, there’s no shortage of sheer talent involved with the production.
The musical is inspired by the “androgynous” glam rock genre and motivated by artists such as David Bowie, John Lennon, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. Well-known original numbers include “Tear Me Down,” “Hedwig’s Lament,” “Exquisite Corpse,” “Wicked Little Town,” “Sugar Daddy” and more.
