Penny Stamps Speaker Series: John Cameron Mitchell

 

Best known for his double Tony Award-winning rock opera and 2001 film Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Mitchell is an actor, playwright, screenwriter, and director. Off the stage, Mitchell works in the realm of feature film, documentaries, and advertising for Dior and Agent Provocateur. He has appeared in numerous acting roles in film and television, including a recurring character on the HBO series Girls, as Andy Warhol in the 2016 season of HBO’s Vinyl, and recently as a series cast member in Hulu’s Shrill. At a special UMS performance on Saturday, November 2 at Hill Auditorium, Mitchell will revisit songs from Hedwig and preview songs from his upcoming musical podcast Anthem presented by the Luminary podcast network and starring himself, Glenn Close, Patti Lupone, Cynthia Erivo, Denis O’Hare, Laurie Anderson, and Marion Cotillard. Mitchell’s creative work proudly focuses on explorations of sexuality and gender, celebrating nuance and individuality in all of its many forms.

Co-presented with the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan
