Broadway's Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the Belasco Theatre has announced its most recent donation to the Hetrick-Martin Institute as part of the show's ongoing partnership with the organization. With its third donation, Hedwig is contributing $200,000 to HMI, bringing the total amount raised by the musical in the past year to $400,000.

HMI is an organization dedicated to helping LGBTQ youth reach their full potential in life. Prior to Hedwig's Broadway debut, the rock musical announced plans to donate a portion of each sold ticket's price to HMI, home of Harvey Milk High School, a New York City public transfer school where some of the city's most at-risk youth can learn without the threat of physical violence and emotional harm posed in a traditional educational environment. The relationship between Hedwig and HMI dates back to 2003, when the tribute album Wig in a Box: Songs From and Inspired by Hedwig and the Angry Inch was released to benefit the organization.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch currently stars Michael C. Hall in the title role, with Tony Award-winning original cast member Lena Hall as Yitzhak. The show earned a total of four Tony Awards, including one for Best Revival of a Musical.
