Mr. Liz's One [Wo] Man Show: Living In The In-between

Feb 10 | Sun | 7PM - 8:30 pm | $15 and up
View Website

Musical theater songs and spoken word follow Lizs journey as he searches for his true self. Through childhood, puberty, early marriage, childbirth, and young adult-hood, Liz perseveres and recklessly creates: all the while discovering a pattern of unconventional gender roles in his own life. Only at the end of the show, when Liz stops pretending to be a woman, do we encounter the fullest expression of himself. Bouk, with the help of his friend playwright/librettist Bea Goodwin, curated a collection of his journal entries, photos, paintings, and memories for a theatrical one-man show. It was important to the creative team to write an artistic piece of healing that also challenges how gender roles confine us all. From hiding up in a tree to jumping into the Erie Canal to an obsessive crush on a Disney character to panic in womens dressing rooms to potty training in his 30s, Liz tells his story with grace and humor.
