Hedwig And The Angry Inch Going To Broadway!

YES!

The hit off-Broadway musical and cult classic Hedwig and the Angry Inch is going to take on Broadway with writer John Cameron Mitchell reprising the role of Hedwig!

Mitchell says:

"Hedwig is ageless. But I'm almost 47, which means I'm at the gym every day, trying to get my old body back, my paunch down and my stamina up. I haven't acted since I did the movie.

"The role is so hard and so challenging that it made me give up acting and concentrate on writing and directing. It's like Hamlet. Except that Hamlet doesn't have to sing 15 great songs. In a dress."

The revival won't be the same as the first with the original team thinking up new ways to fashion the show on Broadway, including a potential storyline that has Hedwig playing a one-night only show at a Broadway house.

Mitchell also added about his character:

"There's no questions that Lady GaGa and Hedwig are from the same clan."

We're in!
