COVID-19 can try to tear her down, but Hedwig is going to give Northampton the whole Angry Inch. Come out with Pride this June! Innovative, heartbreaking, and savagely funny, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH is the landmark rock'n'roll musical by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask that broke the mold and captured Broadway. This genre-bending, fourth-wall-smashing musical sensation, with a pulsing score and electrifying performances, tells the story of Hedwig Schmidt, an East German punk rock goddess whose botched sex change operation left her with just "an angry inch." Now, she and her band are out to right many wrongs. This landmark 1998 musical won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical in 2016.
