LA LGBT Center To Host Trans Chorus of Los Angeles

The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center will host the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles (TCLA) at its Renberg Theatre for the first time.

The musical ambassadors will perform two nights only, Fri. April 7 and Sat. April 8, at 8 p.m.

TCLA will perform the first ever staged concert production of the full The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie. As Bowie intended, additional hit songs will complete the entire musical saga.

TCLA Artistic Director Lindsey Deaton said in a release, “There has never been a staged concert production of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars as envisioned by Bowie and told to William Burroughs. The chorus is very thrilled and excited to sing the music of Bowie while telling the story of the ‘Starman.’ Many of us grew up with Bowie who somehow, we felt, allowed us to live our truth and express ourselves authentically.”

TCLA’s performances are intended not only to empower its members, but also to change the way others see the transgender community.

Since their founding in late 2015, TCLA has drawn attention to the trans community and trans issues through live performances, community engagement, and social and traditional media.

General admission tickets are $35 and may be purchased online at lalgbtcenter.org/theatre or by phone at (323) 860-7300. Net proceeds from all ticket sales will support the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles and the full range of free and low-cost programs and services offered by the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre is located at 1125 N. McCadden Place (one block east of Highland, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard), in Hollywood, 90038. During construction of the Center’s new facility, free parking is limited. Please allow extra time to find parking, or choose public transportation or a ride service such as Lyft or Uber.
