EaDo Playhouse presents Hedwig and the Angry Inch
The glam rock musical phenomenon surrounds a transgendered East-German rock singer named Hedwig and her band, The Angry Inch. Through an electrifying rock score by Stephen Trask and a wickedly hilarious book by John Cameron Mitchell, Hedwig enchants her audience with the details of her life. She recalls growing up in East Berlin as a “girly boy” named Hansel who undergoes a botched sex-change operation after falling in love with an American G.I. She explains her journey to America, her tumultuous relationship with rock star Tommy Gnosis, and her rise to Z-list fame.
