Due to licensing restrictions with Rocky Horror this year, we will be producing Hedwig and the Angry Inch. We have had several requests for this show over the years, and we cannot wait to bring it to Central Maine! Starring Rocky For Equality veteran and fan-favorite, Jak Peters, and RFE newcomer, Ashleigh St. Pierre, this production promises to deliver yet another sex-filled rock show that our audiences have come to know and love. ABOUT HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH "In the whole long, sorry history of rock musicals, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH is the first one that truly rocks." Rolling Stone. This groundbreaking musical tells the story of "internationally ignored song stylist" Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock 'n' roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just "an angry inch." Text by John Cameron Mitchell, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask. This outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is dazzlingly performed by Hedwig in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine backed by the hard-rocking band "The Angry Inch." Using songs and monologues, Hedwig tells her story, which began in the former East Berlin where as Hansel he meets Luther, an American GI who promises to take the young man to the States on the condition that he switch his sex. After the bungled operation, Luther abandons newly named Hedwig in a Kansas trailer park, where she turns to music and meets geeky Tommy Speck, whom she takes under her wing and soon falls for. Tommy steals her songs, achieves rock star fame, and Hedwig is once again cast aside. Hedwig describes her life's search for "The Origin of Love" and her other half. It's a rocking ride, funny, touching, and ultimately inspiring to anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile. "Sublimely trashy and surprisingly powerful." LA Times. "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION Audience costumes are STRONGLY encouraged. Please feel free to dress in drag or pay homage to your favorite 80-90's rock icons. We're talking leopard print and hair bands, baby. There will be a cash bar, a photobooth, and a costume contest with prizes!!! But please, no props! They will not be permitted in the theater. PLEASE NOTE: This show is for mature audiences only! We suggest ages 16+ due to partial nudity, colorful language and sexual situations.
