An archival video from the world premiere 2019 run. Presented by Fuse Theatre Ensemble in Portland, Oregon at Headwaters Theatre.
I Am an Actress is a trip down a dark, rocky, but also funny memory lane written and performed by one of Portland’s pioneering trans theatre artists, Jane Comer. Watch Jane overcome a severe speech impediment and gender dysphoria to become what she was born to be… an actress.
“People who have the talent for acting are born that way. You can’t teach “talent,” you either got it or you don’t. You can teach the “craft” of acting/writing but not the natural artist who creates it—that flows from within… In my opinion, Comer has that gift! "
— Dennis Sparks Reviews
“An outstanding lead female performer in a small cast,” Dennis Sparks’ year end awards honoring standout Portland performances.
“Comer is a person of warmth and kindness, and her love for her work and the people in her world drew me in.”
— Meg Currell, Edge Media Network.
“This show is ultimately about the triumph of the human spirit. And about being yourself (one of my favorite lines: “Don’t let the world decide who you are. They always seem to get it wrong.”). And about life, with all of its funny bits and sad bits. If you’ve been having a hard time lately, this show will help you put that into perspective."
