‘Becoming a Man’ spotlights the trans experience at the ART

“Becoming a Man,” now playing in its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, is a deeply personal coming-out story written by P. Carl, based on his 2020 memoir of the same name. Chronicling Carl’s experience embracing his identity as a transgender man, “Becoming a Man” asks the question: “When we change, can the people we love come with us?” The play’s non-linear narrative gives audiences a glimpse into Carl’s life both pre- and post-transition, as he struggles to preserve his relationship with his wife, Lynette, and find his place in the world.


'Drive-Away Dolls' is a raunchy road trip to remember

“Drive-Away Dolls”, directed by Ethan Coen, is reminiscent of many classic Coen brothers movies. But, in many ways, it’s something new for the filmmaker. A departure from Coen’s catalog of Westerns and crime comedies, “Drive Away Dolls” is a crime flick, a road trip comedy and a sexploitation film rolled into one. Coen co-produced the film with his wife Tricia Cooke, who wrote the film with him in the early 2000s — it sat in development for nearly 20 years before making it to the big screen. Raunchy, zippy and unabashedly queer, “Drive Away Dolls” doesn’t have a lot to say, but it’s an undeniably entertaining comedy that will have you eager to go along for the ride.
