Hedwig and the Angry Inch |
Canadian Tour coming to Halifax
In association with In The Wings Promotions
Book by John Cameron Mitchell
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Trask
On July 18th and 20th Nova Scotia's own Andrew Morrisey will be bringing his impeccable vocals and signature comedic style to Halifax in a production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. This Tony Award winning cult classic, takes its audience on a funny, heartbreaking, transgender rock roller coaster of a ride that follows Hedwig Robinson on her journey from communist East Berlin to a trailer park in Kansas.
Last Fall, Montreal Theatre Hub hailed the production as a "Triumph in Poignant Gender Queer Production"
Originally from Truro, Morrisey brings both humour and vulnerability to the role of the fiercely defiant Hedwig. Supported by Montreal's Noelle Hannibal in the role of Yitzhak and a 4 piece band comprised of local and Quebec- based musicians, the production raises important questions about gender, identity, and acceptance. Ultimately, however, it has been the messages of love and redemption that have continued to draw audiences in for more than two decades since it was first performed in drag bars and off Broadway dives by the shows creator John Cameron Mitchell.
