Hedwig & the Angry Inch was considered something revelatory in the 1997-1998 theater season. An off-Broadway show in the guise of a rock concert, Hedwig won the Outer Critics Circle Award for best off-Broadway musical. It's no surprise — Hedwig & the Angry Inch is certainly unlike any other musical of its time, including such other "rock operas" like Rent and the Who's Tommy. This tale of a German transsexual rock star with fading fame unravels as stories between songs in a concert. It utterly fascinating, with a far more punk aesthetic than one would associate with a musical. A truly inventive and amazing creation worth hearing.
Everything about this album is genus and the movie and show are both amazing ! I hope Darren comes out with a CD as well !
one of the best musicals ever
The movie/musical is top notch in its own rite, but the music from it is good enough to stand on its own. Its right up there with The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
