A review from Jacaranda FM: Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a poignant rock musical that has won itself a place in the hearts of critics and audiences alike since it first ran on the Off-Broadway circuit in 1998.  Based on John Cameron Mitchell's book of the same name, the musical follows the life of Hedwig Robinson, an East German transgender woman who leads a fictional rock and roll band. 

Well done, Paul! This is a truly deserving award and we are very proud to have seen your career shine and grow from strength to strength over the years.
