ETCETERA, the late-night series at Live Theatre Workshop, Proudly Presents
HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
Book By John Cameron Mitchell
Lyrics by Stephen Trask
An anatomically incorrect rock odyssey widely heralded as 'ROCKY HORROR for the next generation,' with music and a story inspired by Aristophanes' speech in Plato's Symposium, this Obie Award-winning Rock Opera receives it's first full local production from ETCETERA at Live Theatre Workshop. Hedwig (Christopher Johnson), the self-described "internationally ignored song-stylist barely standing before you" and her band of eastern European misfits travel the country stalking pop icon Tommy Gnosis as he promotes the smash-hit album Hedwig claims to have written - inspired by her own affair with Tommy as well as a botched sex-change operation in the shadow of the Berlin Wall. A sublimely trashy evening dedicated to the pain of finding and losing the one person who can help you find and lose yourself.
Featuring Christopher Johnson as Hedwig and Danielle Dryer as Yitzhak with an Angry Inch comprising of Nate Jasensky (Guitar), Carlos Lopez (Bass), Paul Tiller (Keyboard) and Michael Fay (Drums).
