What I liked

If you get a chance to check out this show, please take the time. This funny, touching, heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting show is a must see. It tells the story of Trinity, a transgender woman and her journey to self acceptance.

The story is tight, not wasting any time on any fluff and every anecdote has its place in the narrative. It is wonderfully performed by Jade Beauvoir who takes the audience on quite an emotional roller coaster with her daring, heartfelt and honest performance and her excellent comic timing. Every time she tells an anecdote about Trinity’s past, you can visualize every character and every moment. And if you grew up in a conservative suburban environment, like I did, you will find the stories particularly familiar.

I don’t want to give anything away, so I will simply say that if you see this show, you will not be disappointed. You may be confronted, even if you are a supporter of the Trans community, as this show pulls no punches and gets right in your face, as it should. This is a subject that, sadly, so many people are ignorant about, even those of us in the liberal Hollywood community who consider ourselves “woke”.

So lastly, go check out this show! You will laugh, you will cry, you will be challenged, and you will learn!

My overall impression

I rarely call a show “important”, but I must do so here.
