This season of The Screen at Contemporary we look to the often overlooked, sometimes controversial and frequently subversive world of musicals where love, hate, sex and politics are played out through song, music and dance. Join us for SWAY!
In Hedwig & The Angry Inch, Hedwig Robinson - an East German gender-queer rock star - falls for Tommy, Speck, a young musician who steals her songs, spurring her to pursue him on tour while narrating her life story through song. A witty and irreverent cult classic about identity, transformation and rebirth, this musical for ‘all the misfits and losers’ of the world. Not to be missed.
