How does a Jersey boy get to be a New York City stage star? Not by impersonating Frankie Valli. For Bianca Leigh, the journey from skinny kid from the 'burbs to transgender theater actress came by way of an arrest for solicitation on the morning of the 1987 stock-market crash, Black Monday. In Busted: The Musical, Leigh shares her biographical tale about her downfall as a high-priced dominatrix and her eventual rise to nightclub and downtown stage fame. Taylor Mac, Ellen Maddow, and Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q) are among the talent providing the score.
Mondays, 7 p.m. Starts: Sept. 26. Continues through Oct. 10, 2011
