Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Stepping back into the high-heeled shoes of his acclaimed off-Broadway play's title character, director/co-writer John Cameron Mitchell stars as the bewigged East German glam rock performer and recipient of a semi-succesful sex-change operation. As Hedwig and her band embark on a cross-country tour of dives and seafood restaurants, she seeks a reunion with an ex-lover who became famous performing Hedwig's original songs. Alternately campy, acerbic and touching, this unique rock musical also stars Michael Pitt, Miriam Shor and Andrea Martin.
