Written by John Cameron Mitchel and Stephen Trask, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of fictional rock and roll band the Angry Inch, fronted by Hedwig—an East German transgender singer. The acclaimed revival, directed by Michael Mayer, opened at the Belasco Theatre April 22, 2014. In addition Harris’ award, the production also earned Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Lena Hall, and Best Lighting Design of a Musical for Kevin Adams.
