A young East German man discovers that the only way to escape communism and come to America is to give up -- surgically -- a little part of himself in John Cameron Mitchell's outrageous musical comedy Hedwig and the Angry Inch
. After becoming Hedwig and being abandoned by her new husband in Middle America, she befriends a teen named Tommy but is betrayed by him as he steals the songs they've written together and becomes a huge star. The story of the charismatic transgender singer is presented as a rock concert/comedy gig that takes the audience on an emotional roller-coaster ride through the funny, touching, painful and ultimately inspiring experience of being Hedwig. Stephen Trask's fantastic rock score has been winning fans and acclaim since the show first debuted a decade ago, recalling the '70s glam era of David Bowie and Iggy Pop and winning an Obie and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical.
