The revolutionary punk-rock sensation comes to Olney Theatre Center in a special return engagement from Mason Alexander Park, the Helen Hayes Award-nominated Emcee from Cabaret! In the crossfire of cold wars and culture wars, Hedwig is a survivor, and not just of a botched sex change operation that left her with the aformentioned "Angry Inch". Transported to America, she is chasing rock stardom and though the band may be stuck in some seedy dive while Tommy Gnosis, her one-time protege and lover plays the stadium across the street, Hedwig's tale is bound for punk rock glory. For those who like their music loud, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock 'n' roll musical that incorporates a cabaret confessional, drag, and a heart of gold, guarded by barbed wire and sequin spiked heels.
