Re:spoilered the literal ending of the show, leaving the trope unspoiler marked. Added Hedwig's apology gift to Yitzhak
* ApologyGift: Tommy apologizing to Hedwig in "Wicked Little Town Reprise" explaining that he was "just a boy and you were so much more/ than any god could ever plan/ more than a woman or a man/ and now I understand how much I took from you" and in turn giving her the ability to finally see herself as whole.

Removed conjecture
* IncrediblyLamePun: Hansel delivered what he called a "brilliant lecture" on rock 'n' roll and East German philosophy entitled "You Kant Always Get What You Want." Apparently it was such a bad pun that it was the reason for his dismissal... Extended in the revival with the subtitle "But If You Try Sometime, You Might Get What You Nietzche."

Also fixing violations of the rules on How To Alphabetize Things, Handling Spoilers, and Example Indentation In Trope Lists. Also, double curly braces are only necessary if the trope or work or creator name is one word, and there's no valid reason to format a pothole [[LikeThis Like This]] instead of LikeThis.
[[HowWeGotHere Hedwig retells her life story to her few fans]]. Born in {{East Germany}} under the name Hansel Schmidt, she was once the [[DudeLooksLikeALady effeminate]] son of a German woman named Hedwig and an unnamed American soldier. When the wall was built, Hansel's mother took her son to East Berlin to live a simple communist life. Bored and alone, Hansel spent his childhood listening to American Forces Radio, and pretending to be one of the "crypto-homo-rockers" of the 70's.

''Hedwig'' draws frequent comparisons to ''{{The Rocky Horror Picture Show}}'' and has garnered a similar cult following. The story draws heavily from both classical mythology and from the glam rock scene while providing new takes on gender and sex in pop culture.

* {{All Musicals Are Adaptations}}: The film is an adaptation, but the stage show was completely original. * {{Ambiguous Gender}}: Yitzhak is played by a woman. The only unambiguous aspect of Yitzhak's gender is that they want to be feminine, but Hedwig forces them to dress as a man because she felt threatened by how good Yitzhak's drag act was.

YMMV is not and was never a trope. Do not link to it for any reason. Also, a single second-level bullet is always incorrect indentation.

Addingin
The operation is botched, leaving Hedwig with deformed genitalia, which she nicknames her "angry inch". Luther leaves Hedwig on the day the UsefulNotes/BerlinWall is demolished, which was also to be their one year wedding anniversary. Stranded in the United States and stripped of her identity, she's forced to create a new life for herself. As Hedwig struggles to unite her male and female side -- just when the city of Berlin is struggling to reunite itself -- she discovers there's much more to unite in what she considers her identity: the east and the west, the grownup and the child, the man and the woman, the old and the new. Keeping her head above water with odd jobs ("mostly of the type we call blow"), she meets the [[TheQuietOne introverted]] teenage military brat Tommy Speck and tries to fall in love again. Tommy is intrigued by Hedwig's music, and tries to make her part of his life...

* AnachronismStew: The stage show started around 1998 and ran for several years OffBroadway. The film was released in 2001. The date of Hedwig's wedding and emigration to the US is 1988 and her marriage collapsed around the same time as the Berlin Wall in 1989. From there it becomes more vague. Hedwig's time in the trailer park takes place in the [[TheNineties early 1990s]], although (perhaps because they're homemade) the clothes seem to be straight out of TheEighties. There's also no mention of when she met her bandmates, including Yitzhak, although the deleted scene hits that it's around the time of the Bosnian War (early 1990s). Made even more vague with the Broadway revival, which updates the story to set it in a Broadway theatre the night after [[ShowWithinAShow ''Hurt Locker: The Musical'']] closes. * AuthorAppeal: Mitchell is a Radical Faerie, and most of his works explore gender and sexuality as constructs.

More facutal, corrected order of the Broadway Hedwigs, added full info on Hedwig at the Tonys.
''Hedwig And The Angry Inch'' was a 1998 off-Broadway {{rock opera}} by Stephen Trask and John Cameron Mitchell, adapted into a film in 2001. The story follows Hedwig Robinson, who at first appears to be a male-to-female {{transsexual}}. She's the head of the "internationally ignored" The Angry Inch. They play in a string of Bilgewater's, a failing sea food chain, to small crowds, while stalking the much more successful "rock and roll 'icon'" Tommy Gnosis, who -- as Hedwig explains to her audience -- stole her songs. There's much resentment within the band, particularly between Hedwig and her aspiring drag queen husband Yitzhak.

''Hedwig'' draws many comparisons to ''{{The Rocky Horror Picture Show}}'', and has garnered a similar cult following. Although the story draws heavily from both classical mythology and from the glam rock cult scene, it's a very refreshing new take on gender and sex in pop culture, at the same time hilarious and utterly heartwrenching.

Corrected my own bad coding, corrected a couple of quotes using one of the officially published versions of the text, fixed factual errors,
The story follows Hedwig Robinson, who at first appears to be a male-to-female {{transsexual}}. She's the head of a not even remotely famous band called The Angry Inch. They play in dive bars to small crowds, stalking the much more successful rock star Tommy Gnosis, who -- as Hedwig explains to her audience -- stole her songs. There's much resentment within the band, particularly between Hedwig and her aspiring drag queen husband Yitzhak. [[HowWeGotHere Hedwig retells her life story to her few fans]]. Born in {{East Germany}} under the name Hansel Schmidt, she was once the [[DudeLooksLikeALady effeminate]] son of a communist German woman named Hedwig and a (possibly abusive) American soldier. When the wall was built, Hansel's mother took her son to East Berlin to live a simple communist life. Bored and alone, Hansel spent his childhood listening to American glam rock on his radio, and pretending to be one of the "crypto-homo-rockers" of the 70's.
