Broadway Rock Musical: "Hedwick and the Angry Inch" is "Dynamite"!
Directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer, 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' is a funny and heartbreaking story about a titular gender-bending rocker, played by Michael C. Hall (previously by Neil Patrick Harris), based on the book by John Cameron Mitchell with the music and lyrics from Stephen Trask. This Rock Musical has been lauded by the critics as dynamite, furiously entertaining, "The Best Rock Musical Ever!", well -you get the point. For every ticket purchased a donation will be made to the Hetrick-Martin Institute in support of LGBTQ youth.
The screaming starts when a bespangled Neil Patrick Harris parachutes onstage in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and doesn’t stop until he’s back in his dressing room. That’s the kind of rock-star performance he gives in this spectacular revival
Playing an “internationally ignored song stylist” of undefinable gender in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” Mr. Harris is in full command of who he is and, most excitingly, what he has become with this performance. That’s a bona fide Broadway star, the kind who can rule an audience with the blink of a sequined eyelid.
