A brilliantly innovative, heart-breaking and wickedly funny musical sensation. With a pulsing score and electrifying performances, it tells the story of one of the most unique characters ever to hit the stage. The plot revolves around Hedwig, a transgender singer from East Berlin. In order to marry his American boyfriend and escape the confines of an oppressive state, Hansel undergoes a sex change operation, becomes Hedwig, marries and flees. The operation is botched, the American leaves her, and she is broke. She subsequently develops a relationship with a younger man, Tommy, becoming his mentor and musical collaborator. Tommy steals her music and is rocketed to stardom, leaving Hedwig behind. The ingenious musical score, brought to life on stage by a live rock n roll band, is steeped in the androgynous 1970`s glam rock style of David Bowie as well as the work of John Lennon and Iggy Pop.
