With a knock at the door, Nora Helmer is launched back into a household she helped burn to the ground 15 years before, and even after all this time, family ties not only bind, they strangle. Confronting the family she devastated takes more courage than she expected, but, for Nora, it is also an opportunity for a new beginning. This bitingly funny sequel to Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 revolutionary masterpiece asks provocative questions about the roles we choose to play, the responsibility of the family, and how much has really changed for women in over 100 years.

Hedwig And The Angry Inch
Text by John Cameron Mitchell
Music by Stephen Trask
Directed by Sydney Parks Smith
Vocal Direction by Emily Hatch
Choreographed by Angie Simmons
Playing July 8-22, 2023 at the Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre
Winner of four Tony Awards, Hedwig is a cabaret, a rock ‘n roll gig, and a stand-up act rolled into a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. Hedwig Schmidt, “internationally ignored song stylist,” is a fourth wall-smashing, East German rock goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched gender reassignment surgery. Proving time and again that an indomitable spirit can’t ever be tied down, she tells her furiously funny, poignant, and high-voltage story in the only way she can ... in song. An adult, thought-provoking musical about the quest for individuality, Hedwig is an inspiration for anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.
