So, this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill Hedwig and the Angry Inch screening, which would honestly be awesome enough. This is a special Get Out the Vote screening featuring a live commentary from John Cameron Mitchell aka the first Hedwig, and the film/musical’s writer and director. The film is the story of Hedwig, the victim of a botched sex-change operation who is also genderqueer rock star. She’s a German immigrant trapped in Kansas, who eventually finds love and acceptance in this film version of the Tony Award-winning punk rock musical.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m.; 603 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor; michtheater.org; Tickets are $8-$10.
