In 1998, John Cameron Mitchell birthed this tale and joined forces with Stephen Trask to rock the world with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the groundbreaking tale of a transgendered rock singer. After being performed all over the world and receiving a series of awards, in 2001, the story made it onto the big screen. Infinite Abyss Productions invites South Florida to take part in the Hedhead phenomenon when it brings Hedwig back to life at Empire Stage (1140 N. Flagler Drive, Fort Lauderdale). It opens Thursday and will run for five weeks, promising to be trantastic. Tickets cost $30 and are available online or at the door. Visit infinite-abyss.com or empirestage.com.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 5. Continues through June 4, 2011
