Hedwig and the Angry Inch is an off-Broadway musical theater play ( 1998) and film ( 2001) about a fictional rock and roll band. The text was written by John Cameron Mitchell and the music and lyrics were by Stephen Trask. It has become something of a cult hit. It draws on the androgynous glam rock era of David Bowie (who, in fact, produced the original run of the show), as well as influences from Iggy Pop and the later gender bender fashions of the early 1980s. It also draws on Aristophanes' speech in Plato's Symposium, as well as the New York punk culture, which largely grew out of the Squeezebox club in the early-mid nineties, where the show was repeatedly workshopped by Mitchell and Trask before opening at the Hotel Riverview in 1998. ...more on Wikipedia about "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"
