Hedwig and the Angry Inch

In Calgary we have a small theatre group that put on some pretty good productions, it is the Sage Theatre Group and the do their plays at the Pumphouse Theatre. The Pumphouse Theatre gains its name mainly for the fact it is built inside an old pumping station that was used to pump water from the Bow River to supply the North end of the city.

Hedwig is probably one of my favourite transvestite rock films, like always movies and plays show us a different world, one where a drag queen could become a famous punk rocker. However if that happened in this day and age ... well I am not sure how the world would react beyond find the band a gimmick.

I rather enjoyed this more than the film, since there was the interactiveness there, and the front part of the audience seating was set up like a casual music bar, tables and chairs and candles. Our table being near the front so we had what I would judge as the most fun.
