Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Theatre Review 11/04/2016

A review by Suzanne Birrell.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch opened at the Pantages Theatre and the crowd went wild- I m really wild. For those who haven't seen the show, Hedwig explains the his/her/his story in a mixture of personal history and timely stand-up  references. If you don't want to be part of the show, do not sit in the front four roles. Expect some mature content. Be ready for the wit. Sharp and colorful.

Darren Criss is absolutely and unequivocally outrageously magnificent in his role as Hedwig. WOW! WOW! WOW! Lena Hall is magnificent. Her voice is amazing from high to low. The original Angry Inch Band is tight.

As usual the costumes are dyno-mite and the set design was superb. It doesn't get any better.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a performance to be experience and not to be missed.
