HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH onstage video projection

This was projected onstage during the production of this live musical theatre piece. Normally staged with a skeleton cast, we fleshed out all the members that Hedwig spoke/sang about.

For this web version/to approximate what you would have seen in the audience, I shortened all the slides to 2 seconds (just to give you an idea). On the slides that the performer sang during, I used the Original Broadway Cast Soundtrack recording.
