Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a 2014 Tony Award winner for Best Musical Revival, is a multi-faceted rock musical received with open arms by audiences around the world. The story addresses cultural taboos from cross-dressing star-crossed lovers to world politics. Daily News said the show is “Dynamite! This frisky, raunchy fable of love, loss, fury and freedom thrives.” Rolling Stone Magazine called it “The best rock musical ever!”
The creative team includes book writer John Cameron Mitchell, known for his films Shortbus and Rabbit Hole and writing for television. Music and lyrics were written by Stephen Trask, who received both a Grammy nomination and an Obie Award for his compositions in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The production is directed by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening).
Main character Hedwig, now a rocker girl on tour, was born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, Germany. As she tells her story through a series of concerts at the Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants, we learn that a young Hedwig fell in love with an American G.I. and wanted to flee to the U.S. with him. The soldier insisted upon Hedwig undergoing a sex-change operation in order to marry him. The surgery went awry and so did the love affair. Left on her own, Hedwig began writing and performing her music with a band, including one Tommy Gnosis who stole her songs and ran. Now, years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S. when dates coincide with those of a rock star - Tommy Gnosis!
Along with a focus on blurred gender lines and cultural, relational and marital traditions, the musical features a multi-layered plot centered around pre-collapse East Germany and Junction City, Kansas – all immersed in banging rock and roll music.
The musical is recommended for mature audiences as the material may be inappropriate for children under twelve.
