Time Out Critic's Choice: 'La JohnJoseph is an icon in the making'. A third-gendered, fallen Catholic, ex-catwalk model from the wrong side of the tracks, La JohnJoseph invites you to her raucously political and accidentally profound retrospectacle. He combines monologue, song, striptease, postmodern philosophy and vaudeville, in an exhilarating collage which explores gender, class, religion and identity, told from her somewhat unique cultural perspective.This is his frank and almost charming autobiography.'Made me feel that virginal wonderment theatre is supposed to offer up' (What'sOnTheFringe.com). 'In La JohnJoseph's weird world, anything and everything is possible' (Village Voice). www.lajohnjoseph.com/boyinadress. Ages 14+. Contains some nudity.
