Go to John Cameron Mitchell: The Origin of Love

Show details:


Wednesday 4 July 2018

“Mitchell’s extraordinary performance…brings a darker edge to the role he created 20 years ago.”
★★★★★ –The Guardian

Tony Award winning, Golden Globe nominated co-creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch John Cameron Mitchell takes the stage, singing songs from the ground-breaking rock musical and subversive cult film.

Regaling audiences between sets with intimate, eye-opening, and at times devilishly funny anecdotes, he invites audiences to share his personal experiences over two decades of living with Hedwig. In a real treat for hardcore fans and newcomers alike, he’ll also play new material from his upcoming musical podcast Anthem. So Canberra, ‘put on some makeup, turn on your eight track,’ it’s time to experience the original Hedwig.

About Hedwig

About Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Conceived and created by John Cameron Mitchell, Hedwig and the Angry Inch started out as a drag show at the notorious New York City club “Squeezebox.” From there, Inch gradually evolved into a full-fledged workshop production in 1997. A year later it became an off-Broadway hit, playing in cities worldwide to rave reviews and amassing a cult following. In 2001 Mitchell co-wrote, directed and starred in the big-screen adaptation winning Best Director at Sundance Film Festival and a nomination for a Golden Globe. Thirteen years later, he briefly reprised the role of his beloved Hedwig on Broadway, earning himself a Special Tony Award for his raw performance.
