An homage to Farrah, on Facebook today, from amigo Mike Potter, keeper of the wig of John Cameron Mitchell’s film and play, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”
“People always say it’s Farrah Fawcett, but to me it looks more like a George Washington powdered wig,” Potter said back in 2001. “John says that the wings on her wig are her lungs. I look at it as her defense mechanism—like the horns on a battering ram. When she’s onstage, she’s wearing her big wig and her face is like a mask to protect her. But everyone has their own take on it.”
