With its witty songs and amazing story, TRANSFORMATION whisks you back to 1953 and introduces you to the world’s first trans celebrity. Captivating newcomer Nicola Gorham stars as Bronx-born Christine Jorgensen, who was catapulted to international fame seventy years ago when she returned from Denmark following her sensational transformation from an ex-GI into a blonde beauty. Award-winning cabaret star Mark Nadler displays his phenomenal musical talents as Myles Bell, the hard-boiled song-and-dance man whose own life is transformed as he helps the shy Christine overcome stage fright and become a glamorous nightclub entertainer. Written by award-winning playwright Donald Steven Olson, TRANSFORMATION: The Christine Jorgensen Show is a timely and tuneful musical-comedy about listening to the voice in your heart.
