VIDEO: Mason Alexander Park Sings 'Wicked Little Town' From HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
After recently playing Hedwig on the First Broadway National Tour of Hedwig of the Angry Inch, Mason Alexander Park sings Stephen Trask's "Wicked Little Town" to promote their upcoming solo show "More Than A Woman Or A Man." The GreenRoom 42 presents Mason's upcoming concert on December 12th at 9:30pm after its Los Angeles premier at the Rockwell Table and Stage.
Featuring songs from shows that pushed the boundaries of gender play, expression, and performance like The Rocky Horror Show, La Cage Aux Folles, Hedwig, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, and Boy George's Taboo, this show will deeply explore the importance that music and art has on developing identity from a young age through adulthood. From non-binary German punk rock stars, to sweet transvestites from outer space, this will be an evening of self-exploration through some of the greatest gender bending characters in the Broadway canon. Featuring incredible special guests such as Eden Espinosa(Wicked, Brooklyn), Mimi Imfurst (RuPaul's Drag Race), and more to be announced. Directed by Hunter Bird and featuring members from the Hedwig National Tour band, this is a night not to be missed!
