WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A man-actress with ambition! Actor George Contini brings to life the forgotten legend Female Impersonator Julian Eltinge. Facing debt and obscurity, an aging Eltinge recalls his fame in Vaudeville, Broadway, and Silent Film while the world begins to view him more as a Perversion than an Artist. Presenting the first re-creation of Eltinge's stage routines and rare archival footage, this multi media performance examines the dark fluidity of Eltinge's sexual persona and its ability to ultimately offer him salvation.
