Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Winning a hotel stay in New York City, I invited my daughter to join me. As we put together our wish lists of things to do, a Broadway show was high on the list. After mulling over our choices we landed on Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Musical, drag, drama, fun. The Belasco Theater was on the next block from The Iroquois, it felt like fate. Oh, and did I mention that Taye Diggs is playing Hedwig? Yeah baby. The story of love, betrayal, dreams and redemption played out on the Broadway stage. The staging was cool and Diggs rocked every number. When I got home I rented the film and got more of the story and a more subdued Hedwig in John Cameron Mitchell's performance. Both performances good and I really love this soundtrack.
