“I am my own bombshell” — The New York Times

February 19 – March 15, 2009
The Lion Theatre @ Theatre Row
410 West 42nd Street, NYC

Christine Jorgensen Reveals won the 2006 Drama Desk Award (off-Broadway’s Tony award) and Platform is now presenting its return engagement to New York City with the original Drama Desk Award-winning cast appearing again.

Christine Jorgensen Reveals is a fascinating recreation of Christine Jorgensen’s only recorded interview. The content of this piece addresses diversity and tolerance and it is important, poignant, fascinating, historic, and provocative. In 1952 Christine Jorgensen was a young man from New York who went to Denmark and came back the most famous woman in America. Christine Jorgensen Reveals tells her story in her own words.

Rave reviews: “I am my own bombshell.” – The New York Times, “Bradford Louryk is mesmerizing.” – The Boston Globe, and “It isn’t often you leave the theater wishing for more.” – NPR. Some provocative questions posed during the play: “Technically, are you a man or a woman?” “What happened during the operation?” “How do you feel about homosexuality?” “Are you ready for marriage?”

Past Productions

TWO ROOMS, written by Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-Award nominated playwright Lee Blessing, is the story of Lainie, a loving, devoted wife, who is attempting to rescue her husband Michael from his kidnappers. As her husband’s life hangs precariously in the balance, Lainie must deal with a story-hungry reporter and an emotionally detached bureaucrat while hoping to find a way to reconnect with her husband. TWO ROOMS is a tense psychodrama about the timeless story of two people's love and hope. (Run time: 95 minutes and one 10-minute intermission)

The TWO ROOMS director, Peter Flynn, is well respected in the Broadway community and has directed shows in NYC and across the U.S., winning numerous directing awards. The TWO ROOMS creative team (actors, designers) has worked on Broadway and Off-Broadway shows in NYC such as Spelling Bee, Lion King, Frankenstein, Wicked, Death of a Salesman, Thom Pain, and The Woman in White.
