Brilliantly innovative, heartbreaking, and wickedly funny, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH is the landmark American musical by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask that has inspired two generations of young theatre writers and audiences. At long last, internationally ignored song stylist Hedwig Robinson will take her show on the road to set the record straight about her life, her loves, and the botched operation that left her with that “angry inch”. Directed by Tony Award®-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) and winner of four 2014 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival, this production of Hedwig played to record-breaking sell-out crowds on Broadway and promises to take the country by storm with what Time Magazine called the “the most exciting rock score written for the theatre since, oh, ever!”

“Thrilling! HEDWIG feels like a celebration!” – The Wall Street Journal “Shamelessly enjoyable and furiously funny. An unqualified pleasure.” – The New York Times “HEDWIG packs a stronger emotional wallop than most Broadway musicals.” – The Guardian “The best rock musical ever!” – Rolling Stone
