Sara, a ‘Hedwig’ novice, and Norma, an obsessed fan, finally see ‘Hedwig’ together and discuss their thoughts about the show. We talk about Taye Diggs’ performance and the significance of the first black Hedwig, the press’s awkward and insensitive coverage of the show, and the show’s gender and romantic themes.
Warning: We do let the occasional curse slip every now and then.
Links to things discussed in our podcast:
That awful TMZ video (dabbling in ass play)
That terrible Theater Talk interview (c’mon guys!)
That insensitve NYTimes profile (seriously now)
