Hedwig and the Angry Inch

October 19 - 28, 2023 

Text by John Cameron Mitchell

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask

This groundbreaking Obie-winning Off-Broadway smash also won multiple awards for its hit film adaptation. It 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, which has left her with just “an angry inch.”
