  Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Theo Ubique

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Theo Ubique
721 Howard Street Evanston

"The Angry Inch" is a hard-rocking band fronted by Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock 'n' roll goddess whose botched sex-change operation left her with just "an angry inch." Using songs and monologues, Hedwig tells her story, which began in the former East Berlin where as a man named Hansel he met Luther, an American GI who promised to take the young man to the States on the condition that he switch his sex. After the bungled operation, Luther abandons newly named Hedwig in a Kansas trailer park, where she turns to music and meets geeky Tommy Speck, whom she takes under her wing and soon falls for. Tommy steals her songs, achieves rock star fame, and Hedwig is once again cast aside. She decides to demand redress and stalks Tommy's world tour, performing in venues next door to the stadiums in which Tommy plays.
