It’s a story almost too incredible to be believed, but it’s true.

This Tony Award-winning play is the true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf. During the height of World War II in Germany, this 65-year-old transgender German managed to live openly as a woman under the noses of both the Nazi and Communist regimes.

Based on conversations with Charlotte, playwright Doug Wright wrote this Pulitzer Prize-winning piece, which also scored two Tonys on Broadway.
