With its beginnings on the stage of Don Hill’s, Hedwig cemented its place in film history after premiering at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. To celebrate Hedwig return to the stage, this time its premiere on Broadway, we are bringing the transgender-punk rock musical-drama-comedy back to the big screen. After a botched sex-change operation, East German glam rocker Hansel becomes Hedwig and travels across the United States with a stage show, following her ex-boyfriend (and former band mate) and telling her life story.
Winner: Best Director and Audience Award – 2001 Sundance Film Festival; Best Directorial Debut - 2001 National Board of Review, Gotham Awards, and Los Angeles Film Critics Association; Performance of the Year Award – Premiere Magazine
