Cast Aside to Bring HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH to Portland

"Internationally ignored song stylist" Hedwig Robinson brings her fourth-wall-smashing rock'n'roll saga to Maine to set the record straight about her life, her loves, and that botched operation.

Cast Aside Productions will be presenting HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH in Portland, ME August 17-26, 2017.

This glam-punk musical about a Berlin Wall-era East German, genderqueer singer-fronted rock band features a book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask. Opening Off-Broadway in in 1998, HEDWIG won both the Outer Critics Circle and Obie Awards for Best Off-Broadway Musical. The 2014 Broadway run earned the show 4 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.

Cast Aside's Artistic and Executive Directors David Surkin and Celeste! Green will co-direct this musical exploration of identity, introspection, and performance. The cast stars Michael Jenkins as Hedwig Robinson/Tommy Gnosis and Alexandra Diamond as Yitzhak. The ANGRY INCH will be led by Music Director Kyle Aarons, and is composed of J.D. Raines on guitar, Nathan Galvez on bass, Michael King on drums, and Aarons on keys.

Tickets are now on sale for HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, which runs for 6 performances at Portland Ballet Studio Theater (517 FOREST AVE SUITE #2, PORTLAND, ME). For more information, visit
