HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH
book by John Cameron Mitchell, music and lyrics by Stephen Trask
From obscurity to infamy! A rock concert with political as well as psychosexual overtones. "Hedwig" tells the story of an East German "slip of a girlyboy" who becomes (almost) a woman, (almost) an American and (almost) a rock star. Hedwig's (Neill Robertson) persona may be as solid as the Berlin Wall she grew up behind. Foulmouthed, electrically tuneful and furiously funny, with explicit descriptions of its title character's bungled sex-change operation and erotic adventures. The Angry Inch, after all, refers not only to the band, but also to what was left of Hedwig's male genitalia after surgery. Joining her onstage is her husband Yitszak (Katherine Martin), himself a transgender musician.
