Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Text by John Cameron Mitchell
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask

Hedwig and the Angry InchHedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of the “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.

Hedwig is backed up by Yitzhak and the hard-rock band “The Angry Inch.” Hedwig transforms in this rock and roll tale by rising above the abuse, deceit and abandonment they have been carrying for many years. 

As Hedwig steps forward, courageously into the unknown, Yitzhak takes their rightful place as the shining star of rock and roll on the midnight radio.
