Feb 26, 2021

Jesse White plays Hedwig Schmidt in the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.  This is Billy McGuigan’s company, Rave On Productions, first show in The Omaha Series, performing a limited run at The Waiting Room in Benson.

Jesse chatted with Mike Hogan "Live & Local" about the show which is a groundbreaking show that tells the story of “internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock ‘n’ roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just “an angry inch”.  Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the winner of four 2014 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, playing to record-breaking sell-out crowds on Broadway.
