Through Sat 6/23
Four reasons you should run to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Blank Canvas Theatre:
1. Devon Turchan doesn’t just perform: he peels back every layer of Hedwig, beyond camp, beyond pain, beyond irony, into the purest intimacy of the soul. It’s a staggering feat. He’s still funny, flirty, crazy, bitchy, and a whopping fab singer and dancer. But it’s the naked vulnerability of his onstage moment-to-moment discoveries that you’ll remember.
2. Director Alison Garrigan knows and understands every beat of this show: she’s played Yitzak, Hedwig, costumed it, directed it and lived every second. It looks stunning and sounds even better.
3. The band doesn’t just freaking rock, it explodes, takes no prisoners and leaves you breathless.
4. The intimate space at 78th Street Studios is perfect for this show. One minute you’re in a rundown club, then the next there’s so much sound and energy you believe you’re in the first row of a stadium concert with a famous rock star.
The show runs through Sat 6/23. Tickets are $18. Hurry and grab ’em because some performances are selling out.
