How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
If you are a fan of Hedwig and the Angry Inch I would not recommend seeing this production. The idea of having a cast of many playing the title role is interesting. A different Hedwig each night could add some variety, especially if each of the actors are talented. Having a cast of many play Hedwig in the same night (which is the case here) is annoying. The tag team version of Hedwig removes the heart of the show. All sympathy and pathos is lost. There is no connection to the character. Unfortunately the humor is gone, too. It was disturbing to see so many missed opportunities and misfires. I really wish his production had featured Arturo Galster as the only Hedwig. He was the only good one.
