ASB season of Hedwig & the Angry Inch is cancelled.
Hedwig & The Angry Inch is a major musical production for ATC that needs our entire theatre to be on sale and selling for it to work financially. With the extension of Alert Level 2 and the real possibility of further restrictions on audience sizes, the numbers just don’t work for the ASB season of Hedwig & The Angry Inch anymore. After such a difficult year we cannot risk a large financial loss from a production of such scale.
This is a devastating blow for our team at ATC, the artists who have been working to create the production, our sponsors, stakeholders and audiences. We are deeply saddened we can no longer deliver this glam-rock end of year celebration.
As you can imagine, our Box Office is fielding a tremendous volume of requests and we greatly appreciate your patience, support and understanding. Please be assured that our ticketing team will be in contact to arrange a refund, donation or exchange voucher for the value of your tickets.
End the year on an impossibly high note with a glitter-soaked, glam-rock night like no other.
Rapturously received since its off-Broadway debut, Hedwig & the Angry Inch rapidly stormed the world with its film adaptation and a recent Tony Award-winning stage revival featuring Neil Patrick Harris. Now, it’s Auckland’s turn to discover the hilarious charms and unforgettable music of Hedwig up close.
From East Berlin to Times Square, Hedwig has travelled the world in pursuit of her rock-goddess dreams — only to have her protégé, Tommy Gnosis, steal her songs and ride them to stadium-sized glory. A darkly humorous tale about sacrifice, gender and love in all its forms. Come wrap up our season in shimmering, soaring style with John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s landmark musical spectacular. (Thigh-high boots, gold lamé and wigs are firmly encouraged.)
