Hedwig and the Angry Inch


Text by John Cameron Mitchell
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask

18 - 21 and 24 - 28 May 2011 at 7.45pm in The Ron Barber Studio Theatre
After Dark: Fri 27 (post show discussion)

The award-winning off Broadway rock musical comes to Birmingham for the first time.

Hilarious, touching and inspirational, this is the 'Heddy' tale of a "fourth wall-smashing, German Rock & Roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a gruesomely botched sex change operation!" (Time Out).

This unique and outrageous story, dazzling performed by Hedwig (nee Hansel) in the form of a rock gig with her band "The Angry Inch", is the journey of an internationally ignored song stylist and her search for stardom and love. This is the show for anyone who feels that life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile!

"Witty, daring, and quite literally fantastic" - New York Observer

"An adult, thought-provoking musical about the quest for individuality" - The New York Times

"Sublimely trashy, and surprisingly powerful" - Los Angeles Times

Suitable for 15+: contains strong language & adult content

Tickets: £10 (no concessions)

by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.
