The cult rock musical about outrageous transgender singer Hedwig and his rock-n-roll band, the Angry Inch, a name inspired by Hedwigís own botched sex change operation, this hilarious play is performed by Hedwig as a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine, backed by his band. A brutally honest musical theatre experience, ďHedwig and the Angry InchĒ is a roller-coaster ride; funny, touching, emotionally draining and ultimately inspiring to anyone who feels life has given them an inch when they deserved a mile.

BWW Review: HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH Wows at Stray Dog Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Apr 8, 2016

John Cameron Mitchell's (text) scathing and kinky rock and roll cabaret, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, is given its just desserts with Stray Dog Theatre's memorable production, which is currently running at the Tower Grove Abbey through April 16, 2016. Michael Baird bares his soul as tortured songwriter, Hedwig/Hansel, forever altered and made androgynous by a sex change operation gone horribly, horribly wrong. It's more than that though, and what makes this presentation especially powerful is the way that Baird interacts with the crowd, gamely challenging them to listen to his/her angst-filled lament. With a score by Stephen Trask, this show is just amazing to listen to and react to. Trask finds the right voices in song for the various moods and emotions being touched on at any given moment, and a tight band led by Chris Petersen brings that vision to light. Go see it! (more...)
