Hollywood triple threat, John Cameron Mitchell, zips up his boots and goes back to his roots for his Australian Hedwig tour.

Few entertainers have as intriguing, critically acclaimed or colourful résumé as John Cameron Mitchell.

Twenty years ago, he turned his off-Broadway punk musical about an East German trannie with a love for Kraut rock, Hedwig And The Angry Inch, into a cult movie in which he starred and also directed.
