Dubbed a “scandalous night at the theatre” by Charleston City Paper, Hedwig and The Angry Inch returns for a triumphant Piccolo Spoleto 2011 run with Brian Porter (named Charleston's 'Most Drool-worthy Thespian' in City Paper's Best of 2010 issue) reprising his role as Hedwig, everyone's favorite transgendered, washed up rock n roll queen.
Joining the cast this summer is Charleston stage favorite Beth Curley (The 39 Steps, Bad Dates) as sidekick/roadie Yitzhak and of course The Angry Inch band led by What If? Music Director Alex Hennessey, also personal accompanist to Broadway legend Patti LuPone. The show is again directed by What If? Artistic Director Kyle Barnette (Bash, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee).
Sex, drugs, rock n roll and a full cash bar will all be part of the fun at the glorious ballroom of The American Theatre where Hedwig and crew guarantee to shake the walls and stir your soul with one of contemporary theatre's most unique offerings. This is the show Piccolo Spoleto attendees will be talking about the next day and the day after that....and the day after that. Don't be left out to dry at the watercooler!
