Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the Moore Theatre
Seattle Theatre Group and Balagan Theatre present Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the historic Moore Theatre, January 17 – 27, 2013. Preview performances are on January 15th and 16th.
Directed by Ian Bell, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the story of an East Berlin born rock-and-roll goddess Hedwig Schmidt who is an internationally ignored rock’n roll star who decides to travel to the States because of a love affair with an American GI, who promises a better life overseas for young Hansel, under one condition: that he undergo a sex-change operation to become a fully functional female whom he can then marry. The operation is seriously botched, leaving the now-renamed Hedwig with an “angry inch” only to be stranded in a dingy Kansas trailer park on the day the Berlin Wall comes tumbling down. Hedwig then supports herself through a series of ill-fated lounge gigs and side jobs, meeting up with 16-year-old Tommy Gnosis (Michael Pitt), a religious type who befriends her and later steals her songs and becomes the rock star Hedwig always dreamed of being. Undeterred, Hedwig continues to perform in the shadow of Tommy’s sold-out stadium tour, attempting to make herself whole in spirit, if not physically.
