Fringe Hit TRANSMISSION Gets Award and Extension

Fringe Hit TRANSMISSION Gets Award and Extension

Ever since she began her transition from man to woman, Jade Beauvoir knew the story of Trinity needed to be told. But it wasn't until she had the honor of being directed by the great Jeffrey Tambor in an acting forum that she knew that story needed to be on stage.

As such, Beauvoir was thrilled to premiere her "One Tran Show" Transmission at the Lounge Theater as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival, earning a Flying Solo Award nomination and an Encore! Producers' Award. As such, Transmission will be back for two more special encore dates; Aug. 11 and 12 at 8 p.m.

In Transmission, Trinity is on a mission to love and accept herself. The only problem is that she has a penis, and everyone thinks she's a boy. Aided by her Tranny Godmother Madonna, her alter ego LaJina Jones, Punany Poet and her secret lover codenamed "James Franco," Trinity comes to accept her transgender reality and is faced with a choice: Live free or die. Taking a ride on the trans-train unmasks a universal commonality: Each of us is struggling to transition from a life of self-doubt and condemnation, to one of internal happiness and peace.

"Transmission is an eclectic, cathartic journey from disjointed to aligned, from bogus to authentic," Beauvoir said. "It's an inspirational, yet comedic tale that explores themes of gender, race, self-acceptance, death and love."

Transmission takes it hero through an honest and truly unique journey transitioning from man to woman and does so with both humor and drama. The show aims to not only educate patrons on the process of transitioning and the perspective of those going through it, but also to inspire anyone watching to get past their own obstacle in their journey and help them get to where and who they want to be.

In telling her story, Beauvoir uses multimedia, special effects, original live music, yoga, meditation and even shared medical information and life philosophies. It's less of a show and more of a spiritual retreat for audiences all under the mantra of "Maybe we're one and the same."

"We hope patrons will themselves be transformed by Transmission," Beauvoir said. "Ideally, patrons will leave feeling self-empowered and able to love themselves a little more, and thus feel compassion for others a little bit more."
