John Cameron Mitchell to Perform 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' Music on Upcoming Tour

John Cameron Mitchell, the co-creator and star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, announced his upcoming U.S. Origin of Love Tour on Wednesday (Oct. 10). During the five-show stint Cameron will perform songs from the cult classic Broadway musical about a fictional East German rock band fronted by a transgender woman, as well as a few new tracks.

Some of composer Stephen Trask’s early music from the musical he co-created with Mitchell was first played at a drag-punk club in New York in 1994. By 1998, it began its Off-Broadway run, and in 2001, it became the iconic film.

Mitchell plans to share stories born out of the rock musical’s 25-year span at his shows.
