This summer, Vau De Ville Acadienne will take on Lafayette with their production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by a transgender East German singer, Hedwig Robinson. The book is by John Cameron Mitchell, and the music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask. The story draws on Mitchell's life as the son of a U.S. Army Major General who once commanded the U.S. sector of occupied West Berlin. The character of Hedwig was inspired by a German divorced U.S. Army wife who was a Mitchell family babysitter and moonlighted as a prostitute at her Junction City, Kansas, trailer park home. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970s glam rock style of David Bowie, as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk performers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. Tickets are $15 General Admission and $12 for Students. Cast includes: Seth Derouen, Wesley Rose, and members from the local band Skadiana. Showtimes run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2:00pm. This show is supported by The Stage Backers. Thank you for all you do for the arts in this city.
