Portland Ovations will welcome to Portland, ME the Tony Award-winning, Golden Globe-nominated co-creator, star and director of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch:” John Cameron Mitchell. Mitchell will perform his production, “THE ORIGIN OF LOVE: The Songs and Stories of Hedwig.” Part cabaret, part confessional and always big, bold and brash – in this multi-media concert Mitchell regales theater-goers with his songs and stories of living with Hedwig for more than 20 years. Featuring special guest Amber Martin, this “love letter to Hedwig fans everywhere” also includes material from Mitchell's podcast “Anthem: Homunculus.” Mitchell's appearance will include an artist talk, Q&A, and film screening.
