Lift up your hands… again! Back by popular demand, it’s the award-winning, groundbreaking smash hit musical that rocked the Gladstone last April! Don’t miss this special encore performance! Funny and touching, outrageous and inspiring, see the show theatre critic Alvina Ruprecht called, “the theatre event of the season”!
Hedwig and the Angry Inch follows the journey of “internationally ignored” East German rock-goddess Hedwig Schmidt on a gender-bending quest for “The Origin Of Love”, after a botched sex change operation raises questions about identity and individuality. This powerful and thought-provoking rock musical will prove that “to be free, one must give up a little part of oneself.”
