"A rock musical that really rocks, the audacious and affecting “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” tells the tale of a young East German “slip of a girly boy” who has a sex-change operation in order to marry a U.S. soldier and pursue a rock ' n' roll dream in America. Things don’t go smoothly. The show’s ideas about gender fluidity and social acceptance might seem more common than they once did, but there’s plenty more here, as Hedwig searches for success, for love and for psycho-spiritual completeness. Most importantly, “Hedwig” remains tart and sweet, funny, touching, energetic and a hell of a good time." – Oregon Arts Watch
