Playwright's Night - Trans Am

Apr 24, 2023


TRANS AM is a daring, new, one-woman rock musical by Lisa Stephen Friday, featuring the music of Lisa Jackson & Girl Friday. It’s a touching, funny, rock-your-face-off look at a transgender woman’s very human experience. The band were cult favorite, punk-pop/glam-rock darlings in the 90s and aughts, regularly headlining NYC clubs like CBGB, The Knitting Factory, Arlene’s Grocery, Mercury Lounge and more. They toured the country sharing the stage with Pat Benatar, The Psychedelic Furs, The Motels, Indigo Girls and other favorites, as one of the only bands with an out trans front-woman at the time. Lisa is an extraordinary storyteller, actress, and musician with a fascinating life story, and the play is a necessary piece of theatre in today’s rapidly shifting cultural landscape – exploring what it means to be different in a world where labels of “other” are still too often the status quo. It’s provocative, endlessly entertaining, and bluntly presents themes of social challenges, tolerance, and LGBTQ+ acceptance.
