Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Book by John Cameron Mitchell
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Trask

DATES Sept. 15-25 , 2011

Winner of the Outer Critics Circle and Obie Awards for Best Off-Broadway Musical.
She’s back! We pay tribute to our first 14 years by reviving one of our most acclaimed hit musicals! This groundbreaking, Off-Broadway smash tells the story of “internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock ‘n’ roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation. This outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is dazzlingly performed by Hedwig in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine backed by the hard-rocking band “The Angry Inch.”

“ Hedwig brings theater alive with the pounding sounds of rock ‘n’ roll and the funny sad voice of a painful past…, thought-provoking musical about the quest for individuality…the kind of Rocky Horror Show-style event that inspires a rabid cult following.” —NY Times.

“Raw, dangerous, daring and tremendously entertaining.” Providence Journal
