Hedwig and the Angry Inch
by Roxie Theatre Company
Feb. 07 - Feb. 29
The smash hit rock musical returns to the Alamo City. Back by popular demand for a limited engagement run. If you missed our production last summer, or you are a hardcore.'HedHead', this is your chance to Tune In and Wig Out!
Hedwig opened Off-Broadway in 1998 and won the Obie Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-
The story follows Hedwig Robinson (Roy Thomas), a transgender East German singer of a fictional rock and roll band, who is the victim of a botched sex change operation which has left him, now her, with just an angry inch. The fourth-wall smashing rock singer's relentless search for love and her other half is performed in song and monologue in the form of a rock gig backed by her band The Angry Inch. Notable songs painting the picture include The Origin of Love and Sugar Daddy. Multi-Award Winning Actress and Director, Morgan Clyde, will play the role of Yitzhak, one of Hedwig's love interests and singers in the band.
The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970s glam rock style of David Bowie (who co-produced the Los Angeles production of the show), as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk performers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop.
Our production is a conglomeration of a theatrical performance, rock concert, and standup/improv. The performers routinely interact with the audience and break through the fourth wall.
Join us for the return of San Antonio's own homegrown Hedwig production. Talented local musicians and special guests will help to transport you from East Berlin to Junction City, Kansas, and beyond. Hedwig's story is outrageous, hilarious, and at times, unexpectedly poignant and surprisingly truthful.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rocking ride that's sure to inspire anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.
Yitzhak: Morgan Clyde
