In her critically acclaimed solo show THE BOOK THAT WON’T CLOSE: CONFESSIONS OF A LOVE ADDICT, TL portrays a woman who goes on a journey toward wholeness as she learns to confront the parts of herself that are both hearing & Deaf.
This show , directed by/developed with Jessica Lynn Johnson, features a Trans character as our hero! The show utilizes visual poetry, original rock music, video projection and sign!

THE BOOK THAT WON’T CLOSE has graced the stages of Whitefire Theatre SoloFest winning the BEST OF FEST Award, was selected for the highly competitive BFF Binge Fringe at Santa Monica Playhouse and recently received the Hollywood Fringe Festival Diversity Scholarship to perform a run of her show in the October 2020 Festival.
