"The Helen" Lab Theatre, 1407 Euclid Ave., 216-241-6000
Those of us who have followed the development of the staged tale from Richard to Christine, from idea to the compelling piece of theater, have been privileged to watch the piece evolve through the diligence of Chris Howey and Scott Plate. You now can see the results of many, many hours of extremely hard work, toil that resulted in a compelling, funny, emotionally charged experience that is a must see experience. Do yourself and Chris a favor by attending one of the remaining performances. (Since The Helen is a small space, get tickets early as the show should sell out.)
No matter what your opinion is concerning alternative or transgender lifestyles, this show stands on its own as a monumental work. Due to the intimacy of the theater you feel that Christine is talking directly to you the entire time. The show has been refined to the point of being nearly pure gold. You are not asked to agree, but simply to accept.To see a full review of this show, read Mark Horning's blog.
