“Hilarious, heart-breaking, and has a phenomenal, timelessly cool, soundtrack.”–BBC
Bringing their signature creation from stage to screen, writer-director-star John Cameron Mitchell and composer-lyricist Stephen Trask tell the story of Hedwig, who was raised as a boy in East Berlin and undergoes a traumatic personal transformation in order to emigrate to the U.S., where she reinvents herself as a rock diva. Telling Hedwig’s story through original punk anthems and power ballads and matching them with a freewheeling cinematic mosaic of music-video fantasies, animated interludes, and moments of bracing emotional realism, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a hard-charging song cycle, tender character study, and tribute to the transcendent power of rock and roll.
