Text by John Cameron Mitchell | Music & lyrics by Stephen Trask
This is a funny, heartbreaking, and ultimately inspiring Rock show musical for anyone who has ever felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band, “The Angry Inch”, fronted by Hedwig – an East German transgender singer. “The Angry Inch” has been on tour, following the more successful rock star Tommy Gnosis. During this evening’s concert, Hedwig steps on stage to tell her story – one that involves her childhood as Hansel Schmidt in East Berlin, her botched sex change, and her life as a transgender in America.
Her story is ultimately an emotional journey of self-realization.
