Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a musical that tells the story of a rock band that's fronted by a East German transgender singer. The show premiered in 1998 and has since gone on to tour around the world. With text written by John Cameron Mitchell and music by Stephen Trask, Hedwig is a powerful performance that speaks to the various issue surrounding transgender sexuality. Though it might seem like a musical that centers around these fairly controversial topics might be a bit dry, Hedwig is full of hilarity and comedic situations that help bring levity to otherwise divisive issues.
