A story of love and finding your other half and who you are (based on Plato's symposium). One third Ziggy Stardust, one third Marlene Dietrich, one third Farrah Fawcett, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is all glamour. Are you ready for a 90 minute explosion of raunchy punk-cock-crypto-homo-hard-rock sensation?
Hedwig charts the life of a divorced, sexually abused East German girly-boy with a penchant for Gummi bears, who ends up married to a G.I. while living in a trailer park in Kansas! The victim of a botched transsexual surgery (hence, the "angry inch"), recently dumped by her husband, she now supports herself with a few odd jobs, ("mainly the jobs we call blow") until she loses her gag reflex ("you do the math"). As a baby-sitting hooker, she provides young and pimply Jesus-freak Tommy Gnosis with a full-on musical and sexual initiation. Tommy then spurns her as he goes on to pop stardom. Reunited years later in the back of a limousine, they come to terms with each other just before slamming into a bus of deaf school children!
A hit with audiences worldwide, this hilarious and confessional cabaret is played out on a stage brimming with wigs, fishnets, leather, studs, stilettos, and sequins. Dubbed by many as "The Rocky Horror for the millennium", the music ranges from Rock to Punk, from Country to Ballad. Come celebrate with the "internationally ignored" transgendered song stylist and her pan-Slavic band, "The Angry Inch", as she proudly proclaims: "I do like a warm hand on my entrance!".
