John Cameron Mitchell directed, starred in and wrote (with Stephen Trask) the film Hedwig and the Angry Inch, for which he received the Best Director and Audience Awards at the Sundance Festival and was nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Actor. His recent Broadway production of "Hedwig" garnered him Tony Awards for his performance and for Best Revival of Musical. He also directed Shortbus and acted in HBO’s Girls, HBO’s Vinyl, CBS’s The Good Fight, and Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle. His film adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s punk-era How to Talk to Girls at Parties will be released on May 25, and his new musical "Anthem" will be released as a long-format narrative podcast series later this year.
