DAVID RICHARD THOMPSON certified reviewer June 10, 2019
I attended the preview night performance of "My Trans Wife"! It is a compelling auto-biographical "story form" presentation of the life and relationship of a married couple, Mimi and Mara, who are married in real life. You get the picture from the title...two women, one is trans and the other is not. You think you've got it rough with your spotty cell phone service, computer problems, and bad LA traffic!? Try being in the shoes of these two women! We all should be listening to and learning from these kinds of real life stories. Despite difficulties and obstacles, which they continue to face, this is a real love story and that's what shines through. There are some cute little directorial things and I won't ruin your fun by disclosing... full review
BILL JONES certified reviewer June 17, 2019
A thoroughly entertaining and enlightening show that sheds light on the journey of two people in love with each other, one of whom happens to be Trans. A warmly told story of much triumph, as well as some heartbreak and sadness. A revelation, and somewhat of a primer, on Gender dysphoria. Highly recommended, not only for those expanding their knowledge and acceptance of those who are Trans, but for it's sheer entertainment value. ... full review

How can one couple's journey, riddled with so much pain, complexity, and Mount Everest-type challenge, be handled with such grace, joy, love, openness, and beauty? Mimi and Mara will steal your hearts, break them, then return them to you more full and whole than you could have imagined. Even if their story is not your story, this play is both magic and medicine. Oh, and they are adorably hilarious, too!... full review
JAMES J. COX certified reviewer June 24, 2019
A compelling story of two very courageous people. A thought provoking piece that grabbed me from the moment Mimi and Mara appeared on stage till the curtain call which seemed far too soon. I wanted more. It is rare when a play transcends theatre and becomes an Event while entertaining and educating. This is one of those pieces. A play that should not be missed.... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 28, 2019
I was very impressed with this show. To put your own life stories out there for everyone to see takes a lot of guts. Their story has emotional content but also a lot of humor - and some terrific harmonica playing too. Mara and Mimi are very personable and I came away feeling less like I had seen a theatrical performance than I had just met new friends and I was lucky enough to have them share the story of their interesting lives with me. Watching this show was a very positive and uplifting experience. ... full review

What a wonderful, lovely show. I really loved seeing a love story from the perspectives of both the people in it. Such crisp, strong storytelling that really let the audience in. I really enjoyed this one -- a simple premise with excellent execution. I highly recommend!!... full review
