Winner of the prestigious Jonathan Larsen Grant, Southern Comfort is the story of male transgendered Robert Eads and his trans girlfriend Lola Cola (Jeff McCarthy) as they navigate life and its challenges in the back hills of 'Bubba Land' Georgia. A celebration of a uniquely American family living life openly, honestly and courageously in the community they have grown to love.
"From contemporary country to Appalachian bluegrass, the score mines the country's heart, and unveils, along its way, surprising pathways to a new world. The remarkable "Southern Comfort" is about transformation, love, and redefining family." ~William Finn, Artistic Producer of the Musical Theatre Lab and Tony-winning composer/lyricist of "Spelling Bee"
Based on the Sundance Award-winning documentary.
