That said, the best songs on Wig in a Box are the best songs from the musical itself; in the end most Hedwig anthems can't mask their true rock musical colors, and this compilation, for all its star power, comes off largely as cult novelty .
Wig In A Box: Songs from & Inspired by Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a charity tribute album featuring versions of songs from the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch

The Hedwig appreciation festival continues with Wig In A Box, a charity tribute album benefiting The Hetrick-Martin Institute, which helps gay, bisexual, and transgendered teenagers and young adults. The disc lets an inspired assemblage of alt-rock royalty have a crack at the cult musical's songs, and some of the artists involved are easier to predict than others. Neither succeeded, but both made John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's Hedwig And The Angry Inch look like even more of a triumph by comparison. The poignant story of a fading semi-transsexual and her tumultuous relationship with her protégé/usurper, Hedwig similarly boasted a far-fetched premise, an over-the-hill protagonist, and a star in campy drag, but it succeeded in wringing an emotionally resonant, universal love story out of tabloid material, including a botched sex-change operation.
