    Hedwig and the Angry Inch

    Director Dave Steakley Director Dave Steakley and choreographer Abe Reybold are bringing John Cameron Mitchell's classic to the Austin stage set to the backdrop of Zach’s Goodnight Moon. The show – the 2014 Broadway incarnation as opposed to the 2001 film or the 1998 off-Broadway production – is “sprinkled” with Austin references, says Steakley, and like previous versions uses punk rock as a rebellious response to the White House’s support of “conversion therapy, the rolling back of LGBTQ rights, and attacks on trans-soldiers in the military.” Hedwig, said Steakley, “matches fire with fire.” Steakley promises, this genderqueer rock musical is a “hell of a lot of fun,” and the music performed by Daniel Rowan and Leslie McDonel “truly rocks.
    Wed.-Sat., Jan. 23-March 2, 7:30pm; Sat.-Sun., Jan. 26-March 3, 2:30pm. $30-165.

    Born in Flames (1983)

    Cherry Bomb: The setting is the future: New York City, 10 years after the Social Democratic War of Liberation. With sexual oppression the norm, women in this post-revolutionary world still face the same old problems of how to create a social structure that is responsive to their needs and goals. Beautifully made, courageously edited, and swift-moving, this challenging, provocative film is a work that is both humanist and revolutionary. (See our interview with the filmmaker Lizzie Borden, recipient of the 2018 OUTsider Fest Legacy Award.)
