Great Book/Not the Sheet Music 31 May 2007
By Mr. Conaway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A fellow reviewer left a detailed description of the sheet music/vocal score/piano and guitar score for "Hedwig". This item is not that. It is merely the book of the stage play, and while it is a wonderful collector's piece DO NOT ORDER IT IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SHEET MUSIC.

Long Live Hedwig 10 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For some people, the stage production of Hedwig And The Angry Inch was this greally great Off-Broadway musical. For others it taught them a little bit about themselves, about those around them, and about their lives. John Cameron Mitchell's text laces beautifully with Stephen Trask's lyrics to dish out an emotional beat down that hurts so much you love it.
If you haven't seen it, I'll admit, reading the script isn't going to do it for you, but if you've at least heard of it, go out and get yourself the CD and read along between the songs. There's also some incredible photography to look at, many of which haven't been seen before. You get a semi-decent idea of what's going on on stage, anyway. It's quite a show by some extremely talented people. I will never forget Hedwig or her brain parents as long as I live.

At long last! 8 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Well, I guess what I really have to say is, "wow!" I've been listening to the Hedwig soundtrack since it came out, but I never got a chance to see the play, and, consequently, I missed out on a GREAT deal. While this book doesn't replace seeing a show, it does contain the entire script. So now I've caught up and know more exactly what all of those fabulous songs are about!! And what a story . . .
Buy the soundtrack, and if you are at all moved, the next logical step is to buy the book. You will not be disapointed.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch 5 Aug. 2000
By Brian Snider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What can I say I loved this book. The book is wonderful it includes the entire lyrics for the songs in the musical and the text from the script. In addition it includes Plato's symposium which John Cameron Mitchell partially based the play on, and a number of photos from the musical production. There are two pages with wonderful color glossy pictures, the rest are good balck and white photos. If you didn't get the chance to see the play this is the next best thing to it. If you did get a chance (like myself) to see the play then this is a must have for a Hedwig fan. I can't say enough about this wonderful, book other then you'll love it.

More woman then a man like you can stand! 25 Jun. 2004
By Sidney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is, simply put, an amazing work. From the stage production to the written play to the movie adaptation, it is an incredible, gender-blowing glam rock force to be reckoned with. Maybe people will see themselves in Hedwig, and her emotions and beliefs are expressed beautifully, as are the underlying themes in the work. This is truely the only rock-n-roll musical that rocks--or even matters.
