[[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.
