Is She a He? Or is He a She? In 1949 feeling like a boy, yet looking like a girl was never thought about or, heaven forbid, ever spoken of. Lynne Jassem brings us an intimate, highly entertaining (and often hilarious) exploration of gender identity in this impactful autobiographical story, as she discovers how she/he fits in with the world, with every strange situation she encounters bringing her closer to her truth.

You will be witness to an ancient theme, still highly relevant today. This tragicomic solo show - brilliantly performed by 77-year old veteran actor Lynne Jassem - will captivate and delight you, full of laughter, poignancy, and wit.

A spectacular performer for over 40 years, Lynne's story is told through an exciting mix of tap dance, spoken mime, characterizations, multi-media and love. A perspective from yesteryear when gender was rigid and cemented at birth. You will laugh and cry as the decades roll by!

Producer's Note: Lynne is a consummate, veteran performer. Her story is unique, funny, touching, heart-warming and sometimes tough. Her use of tap dancing and pantomime to weave her story are impeccable, and her use of multi-media clever and delightful. You'll really enjoy this show!



"A wonderful storyteller with indomitable style and wonderful comedic charm. A powerhouse of energy, with absolutely hilarious anecdotes, never shying away from the truth… Brava!”

Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros, NoHo Arts News, 2023

"An imaginative, beautifully performed one-person show that explores the challenge of learning to love and accept ourselves just as we are." Eli Hans, Producer SMA Solo Fest


"With only a slight body move, she shape-shifts from character to character, changing the mood, the intention, and brings the audience right along with her.”

Crandall Rogers, APAP Conference Co-Chair

"Lynne is Brilliantly talented!” - Barbara Brownell, Broadway actress, singer and dancer.
