About this show

Christine Jorgensen was born George Jorgensen, Jr. on May 30th, 1926 to unsuspecting middle-class Danish-American parents in the Bronx. She was drafted into an unsuspecting United States Army where she served out her time at a desk at Fort Dix in New Jersey from 1948 to 1950. She then flew to Copenhagen, Denmark where she was re-born as Christine Jorgensen, the first American transsexual. In 1958 Christine Jorgensen walked into a recording studio in New York and allowed herself to be interviewed - for 51 minutes. Arguably the most revealing, truthful and riveting 51 minutes ever set down on vinyl. Christine Jorgensen Reveals is a one-man-tour-de-force-paintakingly-acurate-reincarnation of those searing and revolutionary 51 minutes. It is created and performed by Bradford Louryk, with direction by Josh Hecht.
