• Hedwig and the Angry Freak!

    24 February 2020

    I get Google alerts any time Cirque Du Freak is mentioned in a news story, and I got one recently concerning an upcoming run of the musical Hedwig And The Angry Inch in Pennsylvania in the USA.

    Now, I'm sure many of you are wondering what on Earth Hedwig has to do with the Cirque, but as you'll see if you read the article, the music for Hedwig was composed by Stephen Trask -- who also composed the score for the movie of Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant.

    I know opinion differs greatly with it comes to the movie, but there's one thing about it that I think nobody would argue with -- the score is absolutely brilliant. Because the film wasn't stronger or more popular, I think the music went largely overlooked, which is a shame, because it's a stunner. You can listen to the soundtrack through most online music streaming services, I think -- there was a CD made as well, though that might prove more expensive to track down.

    If you can't access the entire album, or want to test it before you buy, you can find a taster of all the pieces on AllMusic -- https://www.allmusic.com/album/the-cirque-du-freak-the-vampires-assistant-mw000141570
