About this show

Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of transsexual rocker Hedwig Schmidt, an East German immigrant whose sex change operation has been botched and who finds herself living in a trailer park in Kansas. Hedwig finds herself lost and alone, lashing out in rebellion against her physical and emotional mutilation, all the while motivated by an overpowering desire to find her "other half," whoever or whatever that might be. As she performs one night at Celebration Theatre (near the Hollywood Bowl where former boyfriend and now current rock-star Tommy Gnosis is appearing) she talks about her journey through outrageous stories and rock and roll. A poignant meditation on loneliness, gender confusion and the romantic notion that sex is an effort to reconnect two halves of one ideal being.
