A Unique Musical Makes Its Way to the Stage of the Zach Theatre

Lift up your hands for the most groundbreaking, heart-stomping, gut-busting character ever to grace the stage! Hedwig and the Angry Inch is “the most exciting rock score written for the theatre since, oh, ever” says Time Magazine. Now, the beloved musical comes to ZACH Theatre this Thursday for a hometown showing you won’t want to miss!

Created by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the winner of two Obie Awards and four Tony Awards®. It tells the story of “internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Schmidt, an East German rock ‘n’ roll goddess trying to find a place to belong in America.

Brilliantly innovative, heartbreaking, and wickedly funny, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the landmark musical by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask that is “groundbreaking and undoubtedly ahead of its time” (Entertainment Weekly). This genre-bending, fourth-wall-smashing musical sensation, with a pulsing score and electrifying performances, tells the story of one of the most unique characters to ever hit the stage.

Directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer and winner of four 2014 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, Hedwig and the Angry Inch played to record-breaking sell-out crowds on Broadway. Join the outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious Hedwig for an immersive rock gig and stand-up comedy event that will ultimately inspire anyone who has felt life has given them an inch when they deserve a mile.

This Thursday, make plans to see the show critics call “dynamite” (Daily News)! Tickets begin at $30 and may be purchased online. Please note that this show is not recommended for patrons under 17 due to language and thematic elements.
