A Shark Ate My Penis: A History of Boys Like Me – 9:30 PM, The Other Space, 14+
Award-winning writer Laser the Boy presents a one-person musical about the history of trans men and his own transition! Meet Alan Hart, the first trans man to get gender-confirming surgery (in 1917!); Samuel Bundy, whose legend includes a shark and 12 girlfriends; and renowned children’s author JK Rowling, for reasons. These characters usher Laser through a life of weddings, divorce, lesbianism, and finally, joy. A fantastically delightful, fun, and heartfelt modern musical. It’s nice to watch a show not thinking, ‘Well, they could have made this gayer.’ Written & performed by Laser Webber. Directed by Ashley Ward. Music by E. Aaron Wilson. Voice/Tech Rebecca McGlynn. Produced by Jessica Lynn Johnson.
