Hedwig and the Angry Inch
July 27 – August 6
Vau de Ville Acadienne presents Hedwig and the Angry Inch, starring Seth Derouen as Hedwig, Wesley Rose as Yitzak, and local band, Skadiana, as The Angry Inch. The show is directed by Gina Baronne, musically directed by Miguel Ochoa, and stage managed by Amanda Lyon.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by a transgender East German singer, Hedwig Robinson. The book is by John Cameron Mitchell, and the music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask. The story draws on Mitchell’s life as the son of a U.S. Army Major General who once commanded the U.S. sector of occupied West Berlin. The character of Hedwig was inspired by a German divorced U.S. Army wife who was a Mitchell family babysitter and moonlighted as a prostitute at her Junction City, Kansas, trailer park home. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970s glam rock style of David Bowie, as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk performers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop.
Hedwig will run July 27th – August 6th with Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sunday Matinees at 2:00pm. Ticket prices are $15 for General Admission and $12 for students (w/Valid ID). This show is supported by The Stage Backers.
