When Eric(A) made its world premiere at Salt Lake City's Plan B theater house, the progressive, passionate and deeply intimate story of a woman making the transgender changeover from female to male captivated audiences and completely sold out its run. Now, playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett's gripping tale makes its West Coast debut at Theatre Out for an all-too-quick three-day run. Starring the unequaled Teresa Sanderson (who is reprising her role), Eric(A) takes an unflinchingly honest (and sometimes brutal) look at the struggles and triumphs of one person coming to terms with his true identity—and introducing himself to the rest of the world. A truly powerful performance not to be missed.
