What jumps off the tempting menu of dance, chamber, voice, jazz, film, theater, multi-media and hip-hop shows slated for the next Texas Performing Arts season is an appearance by John Cameron Mitchell, co-creator of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” who brings a new word-and-song mix, “The Origin of Love: The Songs and Stories of Hedwig,” to Bass Concert Hall.
Austin, by the way, is mad for the original “Hedwig.” Zach Theatre has produced it twice, the first time with Andrew Rannells, who recently returned to town behind his new book, “Too Much Is Not Enough.”
Enough, though, about “Hedwig.” Mix-and-match ticket packages for the Essential Series at the University Texas, which does not include its Broadway in Austin shows, are on sale now. You can head to texasperformingarts.org or call 512-471-4454.
