Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rockand roll band fronted by an East German transgender singer. The text is by JohnCameron Mitchell, and the music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask. The musicalpremiered in 1998 and has been performed throughout the world in hundreds ofstage productions. It has gathered a devoted cult following similar to that ofThe Rocky Horror Picture Show.. Hedwig and the AngryInch tells the story of fourth-wall smashing East German rock 'n' roll goddess,Hedwig Schmidt. The outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is dazzlinglyperformed by Hedwig in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine, backedby the hard-rocking band "The Angry Inch". Focusing upon Hedwig'slifelong search for the "origin of love" and her other half, thestory's explosive finale explores the nature of identity in a superficialcelebrity obsessed modern society. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970sglam rock era of David Bowie(who co-produced the Los Angeles production of theshow), as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk godfathers Lou Reedand Iggy Pop.
