special place between heaven and earth, for those who need an extra boost of selftransitioning.
But the only person who seems to need an extra boost is Isis herself.

1950s Birmingham, Alabama to falling in love; to self love; Witness her transformation
through text, humor, drama, poetry and song.
Audience comments
"Cherie Danielle's energy is infectious....a young actress with wisdom beyond her years....I enjoyed Isis'
journey immensely..." - Stephanie Calla, Owner of La Maison d'Art
"Cherie captured me from her opening monologue....her hair monologues were minute I
was laughing my butt off and then she transported the audience into a dramatic historical odyssey of
race in America via her character, Isis' journey to self - discovery....This play should be seen by
everyone...." - Clarence Mujahid Ali, Producer
"Cherie is unapologetic in rendering Isis' story....character transitions...her depth ...range and blending
of today's Hip-Hop genre with the culture of the 60's was so refreshing.... "
- Michael A. Jones, Actor, Musician, Playwright
