“Midnight Radio” – from the 2001 movie “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” dir. John Cameron Mitchell

The incredibly moving final song from John Cameron Mitchell’s brilliant rock opera “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” This is from the 2001 film adaptation. A great, great film and a much more transgressive and brilliant musical than Laz Buhrman’s “Moulin Rouge” released that same year. Don’t get me wrong. I actually admire “Moulin Rouge” a lot, but “Hedwig” kicks “Moulin Rouge”‘s ass.

Neil Patrick Harris recently announced he will be starring in a Broadway revival of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” It will be weird to see “Hedwig” removed from its punk rock roots, but I’m sending my best wishes that they can pull it off.
