Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Hedwig and the Angry Inch




This rock musical follows a rock 'n roll band, “The Angry Inch,” and tells the story of its transgender singer from East Germany - Hedwig.


Story:

Hedwig Robinson’s band "The Angry Inch" has been on tour, following the more successful rockstar Tommy Gnosis. During the evening’s concert, Hedwig steps out to tell her story - one that involves her childhood as Hansel Schmidt in East Berlin, her botched sex change, and her life as a transgender in America. Her story is ultimately a cathartic journey of self-realization.
