American Stranger is the story of three siblings, two of whom are learning to understand the third who is transitioning from their brother to their sister, now known as Mary. Rejection and intolerance plagues Mary— from society and from her parents who have disowned her. However, it is the loss of her beloved girlfriend, Dionne, that haunts her the most.
After Mary is taken in by her sisters in Hollywood, Brooke and Janet, she tries to pursue her artistic aspirations by selling her paintings on the streets. There, she befriends a homeless man named Jake and a transgender woman named Shannon. The streets of Hollywood become their backdrop as Mary slowly begins to understand more about herself and her new world. However, one night she is confronted by an intolerant and violent passersby.

"American Stranger the Musical was beautifully performed! The song writing was outstanding! The lyrics and vocals were a wonderful experience from beginning to end. So many beautiful songs that created a clear portrayal of the the struggles members in the LGBTQ community face. I recommend this musical and the amazing experience this cast creates!"

"American Stranger the Musical by Laura Espinosa is a piece for our times. A movement in musical genius, backed by a real life convergence of words Into music. A journey, an epic voyage in one persons life that open’s a Window into the human soul. Miranda’s piano and vocals feel like a warm velvet blanket hugging a 12 string guitar played live, drenching you in emotional truths throughout the night. A honest opportunity to walk in someone else’s shoes in 57 minutes. Mindy Milburn graced us with an inviting voice full of kind, endearing harmonies and soul felt melodies that told a story of one woman... all women transitioning into who they truly are, a sister, a seeker, a human being."

"I loved the show and the singing was great. I especially loved the scene where Mary came out in the yellow dress it was so right for the scene."

"What a beautiful gift this musical is! The writer had to know what a powerful message this would be, much needed yesterday, today, and tomorrow. No spoilers here, just go see it and feel the love, confusion of being new in LA, and the message being sung beautifully by Delia Rawdon, Mindy Milburn, Miranda Miller with a great cast including Jacklyn Robinson, Scooby Ducati, Bill Melrose, and Sabrina Richmond. The writer, composer and guitarist Laura Espinoza has presented a musical that you cannot forget, ever..."

"This was an amazing performance! All of the actors, and musicians did a wonderful job. I would love to see more musicals as good as this one! It had a great storyline and I am still signing the songs in my head. Trans representation matters! Thank you for showing the world a glimpse of what so many Trans people struggle with."
