Remember when Hedwig felt so new, radical, and dangerously hilarious that you could barely believe it was allowed to exist in George W. Bush’s America? That was more than a decade ago. But the talent behind this revival promises an electric production. First: director Ian Bell, whose gift for disciplined chaos has given us comedy group Bald Faced Lie, the Brown Derby screenplay reading/massacring series, and Seattle Confidential. Second: star Jerick Hoffer, aka Jinkx Monsoon, a locally beloved actor, singer, and drag queen who’s about to launch onto a national stage with RuPaul’s Drag Race. (Moore Theater, 1932 Second Ave,, 7:30 pm, $17.50–$32.50)
