Wednesday Night Movies: Hedwig


COME JOIN US for the return of Wednesday Night Movies @ TCC with the rock classic, “Hedwig & the Angry Inch,” hosted by Frank Gaffney.

As the show ends its Broadway run, we thought it would be fun to visit the movie version, a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by a genderqueer East German singer named Hedwig (played by John Cameron Mitchell). Hedwig, formerly Hansel, assumes a female persona after a botched sex change operation which was performed to allow her to marry an American man and escape East Germany. The book is by John Cameron Mitchell, and the music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask. 

Hedwig received generally positive reviews: Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a 92% 'Fresh' rating; the consensus states: "Hedwig and the Angry Inch may very well be the next Rocky Horror midnight movie. It not only knows how to rock, but Hedwig's story has an emotional poignancy."

AND mark your calendars! 
This is the schedule for the rest of the year:
October 14: Viewers’ Choice
October 28: Special “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” Halloween Party
November 4: Viewers’ Choice
November 18: Special “Home for the Holidays” Thanksgiving Party
December 2: Viewers’ Choice
December 16: Special “Make the Yuletide Gay” Christmas Party

…and then we will be back in January!
