Clinch with ‘Inch’

Broadway show makes it to big screen

Drawn by the glow of red glitter lipgloss, New Yorkers gathered at Clearview’s Chelsea West theater Tuesday as Fine Line hosted the Gotham premiere of John Cameron Mitchell’s “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”

The fluorescent lights and racks of casual wear at Barneys Co-Op Store brought the glam factor down considerably for the after-party, where guests discussed Mitchell’s direction, Stephen Trask’s soundtrack, and the shocking proximity of the farfalle al pesto to Barneys’ $100 T-shirts.

Having introduced to the crowd myriad creatives who helped him adapt his original Off Broadway solo show, Mitchell called the group effort a welcome break from “the pressure (of being) an actor alone on stage.”

“It was much more fun to spread the pressure around,” he told Daily Variety.

Among those joining cast’s Ben Mayer-Goodman, Andrea Martin, Michael Pitt and Miriam Shor at the evening’s festivities were New Line co-chair Michael Lynne; Fine Line exec VP of marketing Marian Koltai-Levine; producers Katie Roumel and Christine Vachon of Killer Films and exec producer Amy Henkels; plus guests Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo Diaz, Parker Posey, B.D. Wong and Wigstock founder Lady Bunny.
