The first time @faithsoloway played this song for me I fell in love with it. To me it‘s the heart of the @transparentamazon #MusicaleFinale. It's the "Do You Love Me" of trans experience. Not all, but certainly Maura and Shelley's. Not everyone got the song at first. It was cut from our concert at @joespub, and it almost didn't make it into the movie. Over winter break last year I emailed @jillsoloway and begged them to get it back in the script. Jill and I agreed that an extra verse could help make the story of the song clearer, that maybe the metaphor of the shoes needed more of a tangible context. So Faith and I went about batting lyrics back and forth over text. It was the first day of shooting, we were in a chapel at Hollywood Forever cemetery watching on the monitors as Josh, Ari, Sarah, and Davina viewed Maura's body in the casket. Even as they buried Maura, we were still hard at work unearthing her voice. That's what this fianle means to me. We laid a beloved character rest, and in so doing set her spirit free.
Thank you Faith, for this beautiful song and for letting me contribute some words to it, and thank you Jill, for being game to shoot it without knowing if it would make the cut.
Fun fact, the verse we added actually didn't make the final edit becuse we shot it on the abstract stage and the lighting kind of sucked. This @playbill video is the first time the song is being shared in full! 💜
Maximum gratitude to @juju_glam and @kyssheart for makeup the hair. This look is every Broadway girl’s dream. And praise to @robertoaraujophotography for shooting this so beautifully and inviting me to be part of this great video series for Playbill!

Had a blast reuniting with @itsalexberg on @buzzfeednews @am2dm to talk about @transparent_tv #MusicaleFinale, #ManifestPussy, and the trans voice (literally and metaphorically)! Link to the twitter segment in my bio!

What you probably don’t know is that this crew of “Pfake Pfeffs” were instrumental in the development of the @transparentamazon #MusicaleFinale. From our first concert at @joespub to our workshop at @mtfmusicals and choreo labs on the Paramount lot months before shooting, #JoLampert, @queenlesli, and @erikliberman helped to shape the story for Ari, Sarah, and Josh long before #GabyHoffmann, @amylandecker, and @jayduplass started singin' and dancin'! Art imitating life imitating art imitating life, @jillsoloway and @faithsoloway were our Shelly and Shmuley, putting on a show with the best #dopplebangers Broadway could provide!
