A Metal to Drag Transformation

Photographs of singer Ezekiel Ox as metal rocker and the glamorous Hedwig

Q: What do these two people have in common? A: They’re the same person!

The wonderful musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch is about to embark on an Australian tour. Melbourne metal performer Ezekiel Ox is performing the title role and, as this sequence of photos shows, the transformation was amazing.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch plays for just three Sydney shows 16 through 18 September 2008 at The Metro Theatre before touring nationally. Book online or phone +61 2 9550 3666.

  1. Probably the only musical that I consider a great movie. It succeeds in giving the music a symbolic and expressive role in the storytelling. John Cameron Mitchell gave an amazing performance as well as a masterpiece bit of directing. Michael Pitt also did a great job at playing such a naive yet wise role and the same time. I don’t think it’s possible to hate this movie.

  2. I haven’t seen this movie in so long. It was such an amazing film and you’re right Jake, it is impossible to hate this movie. My friend was Hedwig once for Halloween and I was envious of what a beautiful woman he made ha ha.

  3. Now I’m wondering whether there’s some reason this three-year-old blog post has attracted recent attention, other than the obvious SEO activity. It’s like the film is showing somewhere, or the stage show, is it?
