I love this Rock Glam Musical and, in particular, this song Midnight Radio.
Hedwig is an angry, selfish, cruel and fabulous almost-Diva, but ultimately a human who finally accepts that life throws, fleeting and unpredictable, both joy and pain.
While the story definitely uses gender as a fulcrum, the action, music and lyrics vibrate with the angst, anger, disguise, exploration, recognition, revelation and acceptance of identity or the meaning of one’s life.
I dedicate this to all the sweet sixteens of the world who will not get this until they are 30. Happy Birthday Blue Eyes.
