Well everyone in the Instinct offices is in a tizzy!
John Cameron Mitchell has announced (via an interview with Kevin Sessums) that a sequel to the 2001 musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch is on its way!
Details after the jump!
"I had coffee-and-conversation this morning here in Greenwich Village with my old friend John Cameron Mitchell, the creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. He is busy putting the finishing touches on his first draft of a Hedwig sequel and will be doing a reading and recreating the role of Hedwig on September 16th at a special performance at this year’s Afterglow Festival in Provincetown. 'We spend so much of our early lives trying to figure out who we really are,' he said as a way to enigmatically sum up the new Hedwig plot line. 'And we spend the rest of our lives preparing ourselves to let it go.'
He then went on to tell me in detail the narrative of the sequel for which Hedwig’s original composer Stephen Trask will write the music once more."
Sessums continues: "As for the sequel? Let’s just say it’s something that could only happen to Hedwig - a phantasmagoria with dollops of brutal reality interwoven into its multi-media narrative.
Hedwig lives! Indeed, she’s fighting to Let’s leave it at that."
And with that, our day has been made.
