Rarely have I seen so much talent on one stage. Strong, I mean STRONG voices, tight band, excellent pacing. A show full of passion, surprises and delights. Take your grandma and go see Hedwig before it closes this month!

I saw the original Boxcar incarnation with 12 Hedwig's and I have to say paring down to 8 only improved the focus and fun of the production.

The direction is so spot on that even with the multiple players being Hedwig, it works. Quite enjoyable and fun performance in an intimate and friendly venue.

Terrific fun. Imaginative staging with multiple Hedwigs. Good connection with the audience. Very entertaining, but also thought provoking!

A well done performance with creative use of the space. There are interactive parts, so be prepared for actors to come up to you, possibly touch you and/or speak to you. If you have seats in the mezzanine/balcony, dress lightly - it gets REALLY...continued

I've been a fan of Hedwig for years. I was a bit cautious because the theater location is in a very shady neighborhood. Loved the show. I've never seen a more diverse audience.

The songs are always wonderful, but this is a tasteless production with no restraint. High cringe factor/ getting there an experience in urban life.

I pushed through and stayed to the end of this two and a half hour production in deference to the actors, whose mostly marginal, yet highly demanding performances had my heart going out to them. I loved the spirit they strove so painfully to...continued

A wonderful evening of theatre. The cast is brilliant. The staging is very clever. The band is terrific. The audience is a blast.It's a seriously fun night. What more could you ask from a night on the town?

We go to theater shows about once a month, and this show was one of the best we've seen! So much fun! And worth the extra money for the prime seats.

We were 4 seeing last night. We are in our forties and we LOVED it. It's a small, intimate theater which makes the show works even better. There is a cast of at least 15 people, singing, playing great music & Rock n'Roll (you want to buy the...continued

Fun, somewhat unprofessional production. Clever updated references, lots of enthusiasm. Hard to understand lyrics most of the time. Funky but good performance space.
