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. JJ Parkey steps into the role and wig of the titular Hedwig, an East German ex-patriot and victim of a botched sex-change operation. Hedwig 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 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.”
