The Outré Theatre Company announces its final production of the 2017/18 season, the sensational Hedwig and the Angry Inch, book by John Cameron Mitchell, music and lyrics by Stephen Trask. Starring the multi-talented Mike Westrich as Hedwig and the award-winning Kat Gold as Yitzhak, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a glorious celebration of the genderqueer and the outsider, and is a fitting capstone to Outré’s sixth full season.
“In Hedwig, John Cameron Mitchell has crafted a beautifully flawed character,” explains Skye Whitcomb, Outré’s Artistic Director and the director of the production. “She’s funny and foul-mouthed, tragic and touching, and wonderfully, wonderfully human. Mitchell himself said that she wasn’t a woman or a man, but a ‘gender of one,’ which I think is an incredibly necessary, complex way that we need to look at gender, especially in today’s society.”
The musical is styled in a cabaret/rock show style, with Hedwig a genderqueer rock singer who is touring the country, playing in dive bars and seedy venues. Discarding the fourth wall entirely, Hedwig tells their story to the audience, from their lonely childhood in East Berlin, to their botched gender reassignment surgery, to their desperate search for love and completion.
