Stage & Video Design for Hedwig and the Angry Inch
This is a model of the Belasco Theater at one-fourth sized, designed to replicate a fictional production of “Toy Story 2: The Musical”. Light and video are projection mapped during the song “Wig In the Box” to create a spectacular impact, enhance the story telling, and compliment the actors' live performances.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about genderqueer singer Hedwig who searches for her other half in order to overcome insecurities about her identity. Over time, she struggles with trauma, inflicts hurt to those around her, and believes that her own happiness lies solely with her romantic partners. By the end, her belief transforms when she realizes that she is complete as an individual.
