Newtown’s Enmore Theatre is set to reopen January with a show headlined by multi-award winning actor Hugh Sheridan.
Hedwig And The Angry Inch is a rock musical ride like no other. It’s unlikely hero, a slip of a girly boy from East Berlin who was subjected to a botched sex change to flee to the USA leaving her with just an Angry Inch. Join Hedwig as she tours the world with her band The Angry Inch telling the story of The Origin Of Love.
Hailed as the “best rock musical ever” by Rolling Stone magazine, Hedwig’s trailblazing story and cult-status has amassed a devoted global following. Emerging from the Lower East Side of New York City, the punk-rock drag show and critically renowned film (before transforming into a Broadway blockbuster), will take over the newly refurbished Enmore Theatre from Jan 2.
Sheridan has described the role by saying, “Hedwig is a role of a lifetime, a beast and a chance to extend myself in every possible direction. I can’t wait. LOOK OUT!!!!”
The Enmore Theatre will be set up in cabaret mode with table seating on the ground floor and front of the dress circle, as well as regular theatre seating, for this very special event.
Tickets go on sale Nov 12 at 9am.
Jan 2-17. Enmore Theatre, 18-132 Enmore Rd, Newtown. $49-$129+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.hedwig.com.au
