Reviews:

 Larry Flick written for Rival magazine: 

FEELING THE ‘PASSION’: Hardcore disciples of “Hedwig & the Angry Inch” and “Jesus Christ Superstar” have begun to gravitate toward an intriguing new musical theatre piece, “Alien Love Child Musical.” It tells the real-life story of Rev. Yolanda, an Alabama-bred, New York-based performance artist who has evolved from a traditional, if tumultuous Southern Baptist boyhood into mystical transgender-femme-queerdom. 

Upon introduction, it’s easy to anticipate cynical stabs at organized religion. The surprising pleasure of “Alien,” however, is its earnest conviction higher powers that encourage expansive human expression. It rejects the notion that faith and God-like figures are owned exclusively of hetero-normatives. Instead, Yolanda wraps herself in affecting images and memories that travel the spectrum of spiritually starved student, disaffected “alien,” and eventual messiah-like leader. 

Prior to its official opening, “Alien Love Child Musical” will be previewed with a four-song EP appetizer that leans heavily on Southern-fried rock and soul, with a heavy dollop of Rev. Yolanda’s gospel belting. The songs are a telling indication of the show, while managing to stand strong as individual, thoroughly infectious tracks. It’s the perfect way to expand her cult following to full-throttle mainstream obsession.
