Show Summary - Currently Starring Darren Criss Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a spectacular rock musical starring a male to female transsexual who has undergone a botched sex change operation. It is furthermore rooted in the history of Europe, telling the tale of a person who has lived through the fall of the Berlin Wall. With many of his stories told through song, Hedwig evokes a great deal of sympathy without a note of pity for his amazing and tragic story of love lost and fame foregone.
The original Off-Broadway play premiered in 1998 starring its creator John Cameron Mitchell, who also played the role in the 2001 film version. When the revival on Broadway first opened in 2014, it starred Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig. Harris was subsequently replaced by Andrew Rannells in late August 2014, Golden Globe-winner Michael C. Hall on October 16, 2014, John Cameron Mitchell on January 18, 2015, and then Darren Criss ("Glee," How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying), on April 28, 2015.

HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH TICKETS - REGULAR AND DISCOUNT BROADWAY TICKET
What Is Hedwig and the Angry Inch Like?
There is a very small cast for a Broadway musical, only consisting of the star Hedwig, his friend and collaborator Yitzhak (a female to male transvestite), and his rock band (comprising an additional four individuals). Despite this, it is huge in scope and impact, touching on themes sprawling from European history, sexual identity and Plato’s Symposium, while it is also striking how universal such specific themes can be to the human experience. The show is directed by Michael Mayer, whose credits include On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, Everyday Rapture, American Idiot, and Spring Awakening.
Is Hedwig and the Angry Inch Good for Kids?
With its very graphic portrayal of the themes of sexuality, violence, and betrayal, as well as strong language, this show may be inappropriate for children under the age of 12. Furthermore, it is theatre policy that children under the age of 4 are not permitted into the theatre.

Parking For This Theatre: The closest parking garage for the Belasco Theatre is located at:
Central Parking System
100 West 44th Street
New York, NY 10036
38 West 43rd Street
New York, NY 10036
The closest parking garage is not always the best choice as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow theatre goers have the same idea. Especially when the garage is adjacent to the theatre.
A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.
