Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Since premiering off Broadway in 1998, Hedwig and the Angry Inch has received both an Obie Award and a cult status to rival The Rocky Horror Show. Hedwig––an East German ex-patriot and victim of a botched sex-change operation––tours with her band in the wake of her more successful former boyfriend, rock star Tommy Gnosis. Throughout the show, she shares the tale of her unusual life with an air that is both heartbreaking and charmingly self-deprecating. A cast of eight actors steps into and out of the role and wig of the titular Hedwig, an angle Buck Wolf of Weird News says “works beautifully…one Hedwig takes over seamlessly from another…it feels as if the show was meant to be done this way.” A glam-rock soundtrack backed by a full live band anchors the tale, challenging the audience to tear down Hedwig like the Berlin Wall in “Tear Me Down” before slowing into the surreal rock ballad “Origin of Love,” and finishing with "Midnight Radio."
With Boxcar Theatre, artistic director and show director Nick A. Olivero has been bringing immersive theatrical productions to San Francisco audiences since 2005. The company’s gutsily re-imagined stagings—often of fan favorites like Little Shop of Horrors—bring new, sometimes controversial, sparks to plays and musicals. And it’s not just the way the words are spoken, but the stage they’re spoken from that makes them stand out—Olivero is known for placing his performers in unconventional venues including Baker Beach, private living rooms, and a moving bus. It’s all part of their mission to produce bold, engaging work for viewers of all types, from seasoned theater-goers to those just learning to spell “floodlight.” Hailed as an innovative “director’s theater,” Boxcar Theatre is currently planning their next means of audience engagement with a genuine speakeasy intended to open in the fall.
