The play, which concerns the life of America's first famous transsexual, will play The Studio Theatre through April 1 before an April 6-29 engagement at the Boston Center for the Performing Arts in Boston, MA. The production will then play the Dublin Gay Theatre Festival May 8-13.
Directed by Josh Hecht, Christine Jorgensen Reveals stars Bradford Louryk, who also conceived the piece. In the production, according to press notes, Louryk “brings his lipsynched recreation of [Christine Jorgensen's] only recorded interview to life.”
George Jorgensen, who once said, “My only answer is that I am more of a woman than a man,” traveled from New York to Denmark in 1952 to undergo a sex-change operation. When he returned to the States as Christine, Jorgensen was the subject of much curiosity and controversy.
The creative team comprises Mary Ping (costume design), Jason P. Hayes (wig design), Wilson Chin (scenic design), Josh Bradford (lighting design), Rob Kaplowitz (sound design), Kevin Frech (video/production design) and Jung Griffin (prop design).
Christine Jorgensen Reveals will play Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8 PM at The Studio Theatre at Theatre Row, located at 410 West 42nd Street. Tickets, priced $30, are available by calling (212) 279-4200.
