The Question: Where was Hedwig Robinson, from “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” born?
Adapted to film by John Cameron Mitchell from the 1998 stage musical of the same name, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” follows a gay East German teenager named Hedwig Robinson, who yearns for a different life outside East Berlin. After a botched surgery, Hedwig pursues a career in music — but as with most things in life, things don’t go according to plan. The 2001 film starred Mitchell as the titular Hedwig, and has received a cult following in the years since its release.
