Alexandra Billings in Michigan

As long as I'm plugging people that I love, the more than fabulous Alexandra Billings is doing her one woman show in Michigan in October. I helped her with the musical direction on this and it's really one of the greatest performances I've ever witnessed on a stage.

An autobiography in story and song, transgendered actress/singer Alexandra Billings' tour de force is a hilarious, and sometimes harrowing, roller coaster journey through her complex life. From boyhood to womanhood, she paints a Picasso-like portrait of herself through the eyes of those who knew her best, and least. Not for the faint of heart, this ride takes you from
summer camping into the asphalt jungle and back alleys of Chicago and its counter culture and phoenix-like through the air to New York City and L.A.
