Hedwig and the Angry Inch: Original Cast Recording

Various Artists - CD - Rating: 7/10

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the greatest musical about a statutory rapist since Subway! The Musical. I saw the off Broadway production a few years after the original cast had moved on and enjoyed it enough to buy this CD. However, my appreciation for it has waned as of late. Musically it sounds like a Meatloaf album with less clever lyrics and fewer baseball announcers. That said, it has its moments. “Wicked Little Town” is fantastic and some of the punk-rock inspired tunes are pretty rockin’, despite their wannabe phoniness.
