In Brief

April 11, 1999|STEVE HOCHMAN

*** Original cast recording, "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," Atlantic. Stardust (of the Ziggy brand) flows through John Cameron Mitchell's off-Broadway sensation in which botched trans-gender surgery victim Hedwig turns his lost-boy/girl ch-ch-ch-changes into glorious glam-rock. From the charging "Angry Inch" to the redemptive "Midnight Radio," Stephen Trask's songs are not only accomplished tributes-spoofs, but also stand on their own high heels. Wham bam, thank you . . . um . . . ma'am?
