Hedwig/Hansel is played by the ever-popular Dan Gerics, director of
Flint City Theatre and adjunct faculty in the Theatre Department at
UM-Flint. Christine Tomlinson, a recent graduate of UM-Flint, who is
currently pursuing a master's degree in costume design at Wayne State
University, directs the play. Marie Glenn, who plays Yitzhak, is an
UM-Flint student. The vocals of Gerics and Glenn are backed up by
the dynamic band of Bob Gerics on Guitar, Alissa Hetzner on Keyboard,

Suski on Drums.



A rock musical comedy with an edge and lots of heart was written by
John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is
the story of Hedwig who was born a boy named Hansel. When Hansel fell
in love with an American GI, he underwent a sex-change operation to
become Hedwig, marry the GI and flee East Berlin for America. Once
Hedwig reaches America, she is betrayed and dumped by her husband and
subsequent lover, Tommy Gnosis. Gnosis becomes a mainstream rock star
using the music he stole from Hedwig. In the meanwhile, Hedwig forms
her own band that plays at small venues, bistros, clubs and coffee
houses. Hedwig tells her life story through a series of concerts,
alternating between singing popular rock songs and charged dialogue
with the audience.

Yesterday was long but good. Today was long but ick. We were hella busy at the cafe`. Now we have to figure out WTF is gonna happen around there Nov 15-Jan because P will be out on surgery leave and stuff so I don't think I have that sort of time to do all the shit he does. Plus I am going to AL Dec 28-Jan 5. That definitely leaves us short. Why didn't we get workers that have no other commitments? lol. That would be easy. As it is we are screwed every day because I can only cook so much and run the cafe. Today there were 3 of us working in the cafe and we were still behind. That has never happened. Wouldn't it be nice to get another job? heh. we will see. gotta get going if I wanna be at the GSA meeting. peaces out.
