What I liked

I thought this show was very funny and poignantly heartfelt. A story that needed to be told. Veronica is a seasoned pro and takes you on a heart-achingly beautiful journey of self discovery. LOVED the character work and storytelling throughout the entire show!

What I didn't like

Nothing. It was a beautiful piece of theatre!

My overall impression

“Transsetter” is a beautifully heartfelt show of a human transitioning into her true identity as a trans woman named Veronica. This show was laugh out loud funny while also educating us on the hardships, heartache and insecurity of stepping into your true identity; something I think every human can relate to in one capacity or another. I loved how Veronica honored her old identity, a man named Carey, while also embracing her new identity. This juxtaposition allowed us to really feel that back and forth struggle of how Veronica emerged through the cracks of old held beliefs from Carey and the outdated, judgmental world we live in today. Through laughter and tears, heartache and triumph, Veronica inspires all of us to live our truth and honor and embrace the trans community as we learn and grow together as a society.
