Euan Morton in Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Hedwig and the Angry Inch 

When: Jan. 31-Feb. 5 2017
Price: $30-$120

How did playwright John Cameron Mitchell keep his gender-queer 1998 punk-rock drag show and rock confessional, later immortalized in a 2001 film, from turning into a period piece when it opened on Broadway, with Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig, in 2014? Simple: Mitchell rewrote it. "What excited me was reconceptualizing it," he told Vulture that year. "I don't think people realize how different it is." The title character's still a carnivorous "internationally ignored song stylist"—and a brave, brazen survivor of a botched operation that left her, in Mitchell's words, "a gender of one." But new music's been added to Stephen Trask's prismatic score in this touring version, helmed by Euan Morton and Hannah Corneau. —Byron Woods
