Rocking musical

art10904


Only 50 seats are available for each showing of the critically acclaimed off-Broadway rock musical hit, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Limited seating includes a unique onstage view of each performance in The Legacy Theatre. Get your tickets early by phone for what Rolling Stone touted, “In the whole long, sorry history of rock musicals, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the first one that truly rocks.” The story follows Hedwig, a gender-bending young East German songster who’s undergone a botched sex change operation, and her band, The Angry Inch. There are tributes to great rockers such as David Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. Stars locals Patrick Russell as Hedwig, Mary Young as Yitzahk, and as the band Kyle Cummings, Emerson James, Nick Murphy and Phil Sgambelluri. Bar service opens at 7 p.m.
