John Cameron Mitchell
The Origin of Love Tour

 

John Cameron Mitchell performs songs and stories from two groundbreaking decades of post-punk, neo-glam rock – a collective quest for love, hope and identity.

Mitchell, the double Tony Award-winning co-creator of the long-running off-Broadway musical Hedwig & the Angry Inch, makes his UMS debut performing songs and stories from the groundbreaking work. Hedwig, whom Mitchell played in drag, evolved over time in club and cabaret settings into a transgender rocker who had undergone a botched sex-change operation and whose love life and career were on the skids. The final version of the show, which led to a 2001 movie, took New York by storm. Mitchell revisits Hedwig in this big, brash, and bold rock spectacle.

Please note: This production may contain adult themes, drug references, coarse language, and sexual references.
