Hedwig and the Angry Inch
May 1, 2021 @ 8:35 pm - 10:35 pm
An anatomically incorrect rock odyssey
Got a sweet tooth? HEDWIG’s got some sugar for ya.
In 2001, John Cameron Mitchell’s adaptation of his own off-Broadway musical blitzkrieged its way into the hearts of losers, misfits and rock ‘n’ rollers everywhere, a cult triumph of irreverence that created an entire army of worshipful Hedheads. Mitchell plays the East German transgender rock star who stands before us “in a divide between East and West, man and woman, slavery and freedom, top and bottom.” And you’d better not try to tear her down.
With rollicking, endlessly catchy songs by Stephen Trask, singularly vibrant cinematography by Frank G. DeMarco, a wicked little sense of humor and a message about staying true to yourself no matter what the world tries to take from you, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH is a beacon for the LGBT community and for anyone who has ever felt out of place.
So put on some makeup, turn up the eight-track and pull that wig down from the shelf. HEDWIG’s the punk-rock star of stage and screen, and she ain’t never turning back!
