Balagan’s remounted Hedwig isn’t so much a full production of John Cameron Mitchell’s dramatic glam-rock musical as it is a rock ’n’ roll showcase for the awesome Jerick Hoffer, the Seattle-based performer best known as his RuPaul’s Drag Race–winning alter ego Jinkx Monsoon. Banged out by Balagan’s crack band, the Hedwig compositions sound great live, and Hoffer rules the stage as he was born to do. (Moore Theatre, 1932 Second Ave, stgpresents.org, 7:30 pm, $30, Dec 17–22)
