Absolutely fantastic, I cried and laughed through the whole thing. Brilliant directing and the cast is phenomenal. You can't miss it! Go!

Different than the movie....but almost better...certainly better suited for cabaret. The dive theater was great. The interpretation and production were inspired and entertaining. The singing sometimes was a teensy off at times but I loved it.

Quotes & Highlights

Hedwig and the Angry Inch brings theatre alive with the pounding sounds of rock and the funny sad voicing of a painful past. It is also an adult, thought-provoking musical about the quest for individuality.” —The New York Times


Book by John Cameron Mitchell

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask

Directed by Nick A. Olivero

Under the direction of Nick A. Olivero, this cult musical gets a radical face-lift… again. Presented as a two-week limited engagement this past summer with multiple actors sharing the title role, it returns once again with more spectacle. Presented as a 1 hour and 30 minutes no holds barred rock show. If you saw it the first time around you’ll want to see it again, and if you missed it, here’s your chance to see what audiences were raving about.
