Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by an East German transgender singer. The character of Hedwig was originally inspired by a German divorced U.S. Army wife who moonlighted as a prostitute at her Kansas trailer park home. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970’s glam rock era of David Bowie, as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk godfathers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. This is Footlite’s annual cabaret production. Directed by Paige Scott.
