Everyone's favorite East German transgender rocker continues to rock the New York stage! As Darren Criss prepares to step into Hedwig's high heels at the Belasco Theatre, we look back at those who have come before him, dating back to Hedwig's humble beginnings at Off-Broadway's Jane Street Theatre.

The dramatic musical comedy began Off-Off-Broadway at Westbeth and then ran over two years at the Jane Street Theatre beginning in February 1998. Hedwig and the Angry Inch won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, and both John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask won Obies. Hedwig and the Angry Inch won a 1998 New York Magazine Award and Entertainment Weekly's "Soundtrack of the Year" Award.
