SCREENING

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Ongoing

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. John Cameron Mitchell. 2001, 95 mins. 35mm. With John Cameron Mitchell, Miriam Shor, Stephen Trask. John Cameron Mitchell writes, directs, and stars in this glam-rock musical based on the beloved off-Broadway show (which since became a Broadway hit). While her ex-boyfriend and former protégé plays her songs at stadium concerts, Hedwig trails him while pursuing a lawsuit, booking her own gigs in dingy, nearby venues. Trailer parks turn to stages in colorful flashbacks as Hedwig sings autobiographical songs about her journey from East Germany, her botched sex-change operation, and the rock success that has eluded her.
