Winner of the 2001 Obie Award and Outer Circle Critics Award for best Off-Broadway Musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of a young East German who discovers that the only way to escape communism and come to the United States is to give up a little part of himself. Yes, through a bit of surgery, Hansel becomes Hedwig, marries, and embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. In its first rock musical ever, American Theater Company transforms its theatrical warehouse into an underground nightclub for a concert event not to be missed.
Anticipating a New York revival, the authors gave ATC special permission to produce this re-imagined version set in an underground rock venue in Chicago. To enhance the nightclub ambiance, ATC has re-orientated the theatre space and replaced many seats with an eclectic mix of loveseats, couches and chairs. In addition, ATC will open the door between the theater and its neighbor, Martyrs Restaurant and Pub, allowing audience members access to beverages during the show.
“We want to thank John and Stephen for allowing us to produce this version of Hedwig,” says ATC Artistic Director PJ Paparelli. “This is a _Hedwig _like none before. Think Blondie meets Bowie. Chicago needs to have an exuberant theatre experience and that’s what Hedwig is. Great music. Great theatricality. Great emotions. Besides the mind-blowing score, this show is all about the new America: searching for its true identity and embracing its diversity."
