Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Hedwig's got a few thoughts to share. The "internationally ignored song stylist"––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. She's out to set the record straight: about her past, her lovers, and who really wrote all those songs. Throughout the show, she shares the tale of her unusual life with charming self-deprecation and blistering honesty. Hedwig and her band smash through the fourth wall, burning down the divide between the performers and audience to create an experience that's both intimate and thoroughly rock 'n' roll.
Since premiering off Broadway in 1998, John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's cult-classic Hedwig and the Angry Inch has received an Obie Award, a celebrated film adaptation, and a high-profile revival—the show returns to Broadway in April of 2014, with How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris stepping into the titular character's heels.
Lower Ossington Theatre
When Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues of Broadway World paid a visit to Lower Ossington Theatre's production of RENT, she was struck by many things—the dynamite performances and powerhouse vocals, the costumes, the deceptively simple staging—but the space itself might have taken the cake. An intimate venue can make an experience immersive, and Lower Ossington Theatre's three performance spaces possess that quality in spades. Goldfield Rodrigues noted how instead of a stage, the theatre kept audiences and performers on the same plane—the show in an open space at the front with individual chairs facing it—helping viewers feel as though they were in the same world as the characters and dispelling the worry that the performers might be invading giants.
