Hedwig and the Angry Inch, text by John Cameron Mitchell, music and lyrics by Stephen Trask (August 31-September 9)
HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH brings theater alive with the pounding
sounds of rock ‘n’ roll and the funny sad voicing of a
painful past…it is also an adult, thought-provoking musical
about the quest for individuality…the kind of Rocky
Horror Picture Show-style event that may inspire a rabid cult
following.” -NY Times. “Sublimely trashy and
surprisingly powerful.” -LA Times. “In the whole long,
sorry history of rock musicals, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH is the
first one that truly rocks.” -Rolling Stone. “The most
exciting rock score
written for the theater since, oh, ever!” -Time Magazine.
