“ The Origin of Love [is] a punk-rock live behind the music episode of sorts and a gift to Hedwig heads everywhere.” —DC Theatre Scene
John Cameron Mitchell, the double Tony Award-winning, Golden Globe-nominated co-creator of Hedwig & the Angry Inch, performs songs from his groundbreaking rock musical and regales his audience with stories from 25 years of Hedwig’s history. Joined on stage by members of his original Broadway band and powerhouse performer Amber Martin, the repertoire includes Hedwig favorites “The Origin of Love,” “Sugar Daddy,” “Wig in a Box” and “Wicked Little Town” as well as songs from his upcoming musical Anthem. Sporting a costume that transforms into six different outfits over the course of the evening and crowned with Hedwig’s classic wig, Mitchell is a sassy, magnetic and dynamic entertainer who promises to hold the crowd in the palm of his manicured hand throughout the entire performance.
