If you didn’t know her name before, you soon will. Meet Hedwig.

To walk away, you’ve got to leave something behind – and so Hansel Schmidt does, undergoing a traumatic sex-change that transforms him into Hedwig. With her new identity, Hedwig escapes the iron curtain to begin life in the west with her freshly-minted American husband.

Everything seems perfect until her husband leaves her and Hedwig must fend for herself. With nothing left, she returns to her first love: music.

The winner of four Tony Awards, and a show that Rolling Stone called “the best rock musical ever,” Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a darkly humorous tale about sacrifice, gender identity and love in all its forms.

Set against an electrifying, glam-rock soundtrack, Hedwig and her band The Angry Inch relive the heart-breaking and hilarious history that led her to this moment.
