Summer is a time for sequels, but we think you may not mind this one. Journalist Kevin Sessums writes that he recently had lunch with John Cameron Mitchell, who just finished the first draft of a sequel to his 2001 musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, originally based on Mitchell's own stage play. (Stephen Trask will return as composer.) What's it about? "Let’s just say it’s something that could only happen to Hedwig — a phantasmagoria with dollops of brutal reality interwoven into its multi-media narrative," says Sessums. Tease!
