Winner of the 2014 Tony award for Best Musical Revival, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is an inspiration to anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.

Themes

  • This musical was partially inspired by Plato’s Symposium. Among other things, it is written: “Love is born into every human being; it calls back the halves of our original nature together; it tries to make one out of two and heal the wound of human nature.” Do you agree with this statement? How might this be reflected in our lives? And, finally, how might this idea be expressed in this musical?
  • The main character, Hedwig, has a moment of discovery that a great personal sacrifice ended up in vain. But this is only realized in retrospect. Do you think that in the moment, the choice to sacrifice was good, when Hedwig didn’t know how things would turn out?
  • Hedwig’s lover, Tommy, eventually leaves her because he can’t accept who she is. How does this relate to the above quote from Plato’s Symposium? What do you think Hedwig should do next?
