Intriguing, Off-Beat Story
Those who are buying Broadway group tickets will find that Hedwig and the Angry Inch offers characters and a story that are simply intriguing and unusual. The focus is on a East German transgender singer who will be played by Harris. The book is written by John Cameron Mitchell and the music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask. In writing the musical, Mitchell drew upon his real life as the son of a U.S. Army Major General who once was in charge of the West Berlin sector occupied by the U.S. The transgender character of Hedwig was inspired by a German woman who babysat for the Mitchell family. The woman, who was divorced from a U.S. Army soldier, also worked as a prostitute at the Junction City, Kansas trailer park in which she lived.
Broadway group sales are expected to be big for Hedwig partly due to the tale it tells. The story takes amazing twists and turns as it focuses on the glam rock era of the 1970s. The music is very much grounded in that era and the story is told by Hedwig in an extended monologue as it swings back and forth from Hedwig’s musical act and that of the very successful rock star Tommy Gnosis who is touring around the country. The story is filled with ups and downs as Hedwig loses her husband, befriends Tommy Speck, who she mentors and then watches as his career skyrockets as Tommy Gnosis and must cope with all of her disappointments.
