Abstract:

Adapted from the off-Broadway musical hit, "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" presents a drama queen getting not only what she needs, but also what she wants: love, unfettered and unconditional. Hedwig, a surgically botched transsexual from East Germany, travels the States with his band, playing a string of Red Lobster-type restaurants to audiences rendered incredulous by his boyish brand of girl glam; he reveals his story in flashbacks between musical numbers. For Hedwig, who exists in an indeterminate but politically charged space between freedom and frustration, life is about looking for her personal dividing wall - to smash it into ruin.
