Hedwig & The Angry Inch

Being more of a punk rocker than a theatre-goer, when I caught wind of this production happening in Medicine Hat, I couldn’t resist getting on board. Here’s the scoop…

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band (The Angry Inch) front by an East German transgender singer. The musical premiered off-broadway in 1998 and the film adaptation was released in 2000, starring and produced by writer John Cameron Mitchell.

The local production features 11 full songs, with the band on stage throughout the entire show, a band featuring a handful of local punk rock veterans (One Shot Left, Rex Stiff, Iverdale). You can guarantee this will be the heaviest rock musical to ever run in Medicine Hat!

When: March 12-13, 18-20
Where: Community Theatre Arts Centre (1221 10th Avenue SW)
Tickets: Adults – $24, Students – $19 (with valid student ID)
Tickets available online at or by phoning Della Jesse at 403-502-3477.

    Sounds like the funnest thing ever. Are you going to be performing, Jeff?

    If I could find people to play music with, Minus Shamos could have been included in that Punk Rock Veteran list. ;[

    Love this show, everyone in it is doing such a spectacular job. I discovered Hedwig in 2002 when I was still living in Regina. Never thought I’d get to see a live stage version, least of all in Med Hat… congrats to cast and crew, and thank you for bringing Hedwig to us. Go see it everyone – its fun, so funny, and those songs – they will stay in your brain for good!
