The life of a transgender man in Georgia is the subject of the musical SOUTHERN COMFORT, to open in the Pride Arts Center’s Broadway stage in March under JD Caudill’s direction, with music direction by Robert Ollis. Based on the 2001 Sundance Film Festival documentary, SOUTHERN COMFORT follows the last year of Robert Eads, a transgender man in Georgia. He surrounds himself with his chosen family, as they share monthly potluck meals. Like any family, they have their own trials and tribulations, but ultimately, they all seek acceptance for who they are in their own skin.
SOUTHERN COMFORT received its premiere at The Public Theater in New York City in February of 2016 and was written by Dan Collins (book and lyrics) and Julianne Wick Davis (composer), who created TREVOR: THE MUSICAL, which was warmly received in its world premiere production at Writers Theatre in summer 2017.
