Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This full-cast production creates a compelling audio experience exploring gender identity and sexuality. When an accident mutilates one of a pair of twin baby boys, his parents consult a doctor who convinces them to raise their son as a daughter. Bobby Steggert gives the standout performance in the role of the titular boy both as a child trying to understand life and an adult trying to make a life. Sarah Drew, John Getz, Travis Johns, and Amy Pietz splendidly fill out the rest of the cast of the L.A. Theatre Works production, directed by Debbie Devine. Listening to this production, based on a real-life event, will take listeners on an unforgettable emotional journey with this family and their boy.” AudioFile
