John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s cult hit tells the story of “the internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Schmidt, an East German glam goddess and victim of a botched sex change operation. Through a series of monologues and punk-rock confessionals, Hedwig tells her tragic story of love, loss, and stolen stardom. In a backyard garage, Skin Horse and Whom Do You Work For? staged a loud, grungy, intimate production of this beloved work.
