The first time I saw the songs, "What's With All These Goats?", "Your Body is The Bomb (Literally)" and "Call Me After Call To Prayer", I was laughing uncontrollably for 20 minutes straight.

Bob, there must be some extra copies around somewhere, especially when the show lets out.

Theatregoers at the Broadway premiere of Hedwig and the Angry Inch will receive an extra Playbill, along with the one for the rock musical starring Neil Patrick Harris.

Playbills for Hurt Locker The Musical are being distributed at the show.


Playbill.com seems to indicate that they're being given out to the everyone who sees the show.

I love the RADA-trained Arab actor with a PhD whose only TV credits are playing terrorists.

The Abdul Batin and Pepper Phillips bios are truly hilarious.

Here's a link, it does indeed start on page 11:

RippedMan, there's an added line in the show about Hedwig performing on the set of the Hurt Locker musical. That's why the scenery looks the way it does.

That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

Oh wow! That is a treasure trove of deeply nerdy, deeply funny, deeply specific jokes. But I think my favorite is the "Luxury" ad for a bar of gold at the end. Perfect.
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

I saw one of the last previews of HEDWIG. And while some people had them, most everyone around me did NOT. The usher seemed to not know what I was talking about when I asked for one.
Favorite shows of the 2013 - 2014 season (so far): Fun Home, The Glass Menagerie, After Midnight, The Bridges of Madison County, If/Then, The Most Happy Fella

When I went to one of the final previews of HEDWIG, they were scattered everywhere in the theatre, about 2 a row. If you get to the theatre earlier, you will probably pick one up. They are just sitting on top of random seats it seems, as if they were "left over" from the final performance.

I emailed the Playbill Store and they are not selling them. The nice person at Playbill said they could be under your seat.

Here is what I got from Playbillstore.com

Hi Angel,
The Hedwig playbills do not contain the Hurtlocker playbill. My
understanding is that was something that you get at the theatre if you
look under your seat but they are part of the actual playbills.
Best,

^^brdway411: is your name Angel (mine is) ? Because I emailed them last night too and I got that exact same email response... Spooky!! Unless they've been inundated with requests and it was sent as a mass response?
