Hailed as “the best rock musical ever,” this Tony Award-winning masterpiece tells the captivating story of Hedwig, a fourth-wall smashing genderqueer East German rock'n'roll goddess. Backed by her punk rock band "The Angry Inch,” Hedwig (Edward Simon) weaves a tragically beautiful international journey, escaping East Berlin as Hansel and arriving in an all-American Kansas trailer park as Hedwig. Through soaring rock songs and side-splitting monologues, Hedwig greets us as she stalks cornfed superstar Tommy Gnosis's world tour. Divided between conqueror and victim, Hedwig demands redress from Tommy for stealing her songs, her fame, and her love. Aided by her assistant, backup singer, and husband, Yitzhak (Kimberly Kaye), Hedwig shares her fascinating life story with songs like “Tear Me Down,” “The Origin of Love,” “Sugar Daddy” & “Wig in a Box.” This rockin’ ride exposes the polarity in us all, lifting up anyone who feels life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.

“Hedwig” hits New Orleans starting September 6th at Cafe Istanbul for a strictly limited engagement.
