Museum Of Fine Arts: Hedwig And The Angry Inch! says
As part of their "Movies Houstonians Love" series, the Museum of Fine Arts presents


Introduced by author Gwendolyn Zepeda, Houston’s first poet laureate

Hansel, a wannabe rock star from East Berlin, leaves Germany for an American GI but is abandoned in a Kansas trailer park after a botched sex-change operation. Now calling herself Hedwig (played by director/screenwriter John Cameron Mitchell), she dresses in glam-rock style with sparkly costumes and various wigs and forms a band called the Angry Inch. Hedwig ends up falling for a teenage boy (Michael Pitt) who steals her songs and her dreams of stardom.



“The Rocky Horror Picture Show for an America that has come out of the closet. Where Rocky Horror was tame, campy singalong fun, Hedwig has far more range. The story . . . is wildly witty, but also inventive, audacious, and poignant.” —USA Today
