ASB season of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
Music and lyrics by Stephen Trask. Book by John Cameron Mitchel.
End the year on an impossibly high note with a glitter-soaked, glam-rock night like no other.
Rapturously received since its off-Broadway debut, Hedwig & the Angry Inch rapidly stormed the world with its film adaptation and a recent Tony Award-winning stage revival featuring Neil Patrick Harris. Now, it’s Auckland’s turn to discover the hilarious charms and unforgettable music of Hedwig up close.
From East Berlin to Times Square, Hedwig has travelled the world in pursuit of her rock-goddess dreams—only to have her protégé, Tommy Gnosis, steal her songs and ride them to stadium-sized glory.
A darkly humorous tale about sacrifice, gender and love in all its forms. Come wrap up our season in shimmering, soaring style with John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s landmark musical spectacular. (Thigh-high boots, gold lamé and wigs are firmly encouraged.)
