Trans Entertainment Guild Stages THE CIVILITY OF ALBERT CASHIER at The Players Theatre

Never more timely, Trans Entertainment Guild presents a unique creative team and cast, in a concert reading of "The Civility of Albert Cashier" at The Players Theatre, 115 MacDougal Street, NYC, now through June 5th, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., and on Sundays at 2 p.m. Albert D. J. Cashier is a brave and heroic soldier in the Civil War.

He is a man - who was assigned female at birth - and when his secret is revealed years later, after fighting for the Union in over 40 engagements, we see who his true friends are. With a stunning script by GLAAD nominated writer Jay Paul Deratany, and glorious original folk/Americana music by Joe Stevens and Keaton Wooden (he/him), with meaningful lyrics by Stevens, Wooden and Deratany, this talented gender-expansive, transgender cast not only performs and sings with gorgeous harmonies, but they also play the accompanying instrumentals including guitar, cajon, violin and more! Nicole D'Angelo (she/they) music directs.

The show had a successful run in Chicago pre-pandemic and is now Broadway bound. This is a heartfelt production complete with breathtaking pathos and uplifting hope. The stellar cast is composed of two teams who switch roles on alternate dates, so you will want to experience the off-Broadway debut of "The Civility of Albert Cashier" twice! There will be different roundtables, talk backs and community events after every performance, and each show benefits Transgender artists and organizations. There is no better time to address the intersection of gender and liberation issues than now.
