Show Re-Cap

I want to start off by Thanking Jobsite Theater, staff, and crew; a special thank you to David Jenkins for offering us the opportunity to be the Evening Sponsor for the show the night we attended. What an honor and pleasure for Tampa Bay Gay. We are happy to be a part of supporting such a great and talented set of individuals. Tampa Bay Gay will continue our support for the Local Arts and more specifically the Jobsite Theater at the Straz Center.

Have you heard? Grab your leather boots, a fluffy boa if you would like, but DO NOT forget your glitter! Hedwig and the Angry Inch are performing LIVE in Tampa through September 15th (the show was even extended). If you are not familiar with HEDWIG, purchase tickets and get ready to step into the BEST GLAM ROCK Concert of 2018. You heard it here first; The Glam Rock Legend HEDWIG is here for only two more weeks.

The night we attended the show was Sold Out. SPOILER ALERT: This is a Theatrical performance (sorry about that). However, put that minor detail aside and get ready for a Concert/Story of a lifetime.

I want a GRAND performance when I attend theater; I want the performer to pull me into that space. Lose my current reality and step into theirs. From the moment that Hedwig enters the room, I could feel the spot light radiating from him (or her - get to that in a moment). Spencer Meyers, who plays Hedwig, did a remarkable job in portraying this roll. (A GRAND Performance has arrived! BRAVO Sir! ) In an instant, I was transformed into a concert attending groupie watching the one and only HEDWIG LIVE!

Ladies and Gentlemanů HEDWIG and the ANGRY INCH

A little back story: Hedwig was born a man; things happened and well, a decision had to be made. She will explain the story. Oh and now that Hedwig is a woman; she will even share her, "First Time of the Month..." There are exaggerated Wigs, unique costuming and spot on make-up, the complete recipe for a fun ride.

The row in front of us was rocking out, singing along, and raising their hands as everyone was enjoying the show. You will take a trip through Hedwig's life and her career as a world traveling artist. There may be some fluff but, it is a show you are there to see. There are times when I felt sadness, fear, sympathy, humor, horror, more importantly I was a part of the journey Hedwig was sharing. The show runs about 85 minutes with no intermission.

If you are interested in seeing Hedwig and the Angry Inch I would suggest you get your tickets now. It has SOLD OUT the first two weekends. The show has been extended through September 15, 2018. You can purchase tickets below as well. Support Local Arts & Theater.
