Hedwig and the Angry Inch: Complete Text & Lyrics to the Smash Rock Musical – Broadway Edition by John Cameron Mitchell

“Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a play that needs to be seen to be appreciated. I have never seen it in performance, but after listening to, and liking, the recent Broadway cast album I decided I needed to know the story and what the heck was going on.
The lyrics and songs work well as standalone pieces of rock music, but if you read the text of the script you will see that there is a narrative that they integrate into. To be honest, I will have to read this piece again before I would be able to give any coherent answer to what I think it is “trying to say”, and maybe even then it needs a director’s vision and performance to actualize. I am not sure.
The text is surprisingly moving, and as one reads you cannot help but think of the mask that each and every one of us wear every day in order to protect ourselves as we try to reach what we want, love and acceptance.
“Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a quick read. It has a unique and intriguing premise, and it helped me to appreciate the music even more.
