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.
Written by Alexandra Billings
Alexandra Billings with Arrangements by Steve Schalchlin.
Lyrics by Chrisanne Blakenship Billings.
Directed by Mary Beidler Gearen
Nominated for an ADA
