About this show

Chicago meets TransAmerica in Busted, actress Bianca Leigh's recounting of the events surrounding her arrest for alleged solicitation against the backdrop of the "Black Monday" stock market crash of 1987. While cooling her 6-inch heels in the clink awaiting arraignment, Bianca looks back at her past and tries to make sense of how a skinny Jersey boy with dreams of becoming a great Shakespearean actress ended up as a high-priced dominatrix. In a tour-de-force performance both hilarious and moving, Bianca revisits her past as a young transwoman in early transition and brings to vivid life more than a dozen characters -- from her disappointed mother to the sadistic corrections officer who enacts the ultimate humiliation.
