Sounds of Musical Theatre


The thrill of control. Like the rush of rock and roll. Its the sweetest taste youll know.

Brilliantly innovative, heartbreaking and wickedly funny, the landmark musical by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, HEDWIG and the ANGRY INCH, is set to make its triumphant return to Sydney in January with multi-Award winning actor, Hugh Sheridan, set to punk up the stage in the lead role of Hedwig. Hailed as the best rock musical ever by Rolling Stone magazine, Hedwigs trailblazing story and cult-status has amassed a devoted global following. Emerging from the Lower East Side of New York City, the punk-rock drag show and critically renowned film (before transforming into a Broadway blockbuster), will take over the newly refurbished Enmore Theatre in Sydney from 2 January 2021.

HEDWIG and the ANGRY INCH is a rock musical ride like no other. Its unlikely hero, a slip of a girly boy from East Berlin who was subjected to a botched sex change to flee to the USA leaving her with just an Angry Inch. Join Hedwig as she tours the world with her band The Angry Inch telling the story of The Origin Of Love.

Whilst in his final year at NIDA, Hugh Sheridan was cast as Ben Rafter in Australias highest rating family drama Packed to the Rafters and continued in the role for 5 seasons. Following Rafters he starred in the Seven Network telemovie Never Tear Us Apart, based on Australias most successful band, INXS, directed by Emmy Nominee, Daina Reid and in the Opera Australia / ABC musical co-production, The Divorce, before moving back to our TV screens on House Husbands and Five Bedrooms. Due to huge demand, Channel 7 along with Amazon, has just wrapped filming a follow up instalment of Packed To The Rafters titled Back To The Rafters which focuses on the Rafter family 10 years from where they previously left the series with Hugh bringing Ben Rafter back to the screen.

Hugh said, Hedwig is a role of a lifetime, a beast and a chance to extend myself in every possible direction. I cant wait. LOOK OUT.

Produced by David M. Hawkins, Hedwig is sure to become the unlikely hero we need on stage after the shocker thats been 2020. Hawkins said, I am so pleased to be bringing HEDWIG back to Australia, it is one of the landmark shows of this century.

She speaks to and for us all. Hugh Sheridan was born to play this role, as one of Australias most versatile performers being a total triple threat an amazing actor, superb singer and a classically trained dancer as well.
