Sign up for the latest about American Songbook.
After a career of making music in both the pop and classical worlds (Sia, American Ballet Theatre, Mark Morris Dance Group), Our Lady J—an Emmy and Golden Globe nominee and Peabody Award winner—returns to the New York stage. Her American Songbook performance will showcase her progression as a lyricist and composer since becoming a writer and producer in Hollywood (currently on Ryan Murphy’s Pose on FX). Our Lady J will debut her catalogue of new music, which will feature original compositions with her collaborator, Justin Tranter, one of the most successful songwriters in pop music today. Our Lady J holds the honor of being the first out trans writer to be hired in a television writers’ room. Tonight, she takes The Appel Room’s glittering stage for a liberating celebration that fuses electro-pop with the uplifting, soul-shaking sound she's known—and loved—for. Don’t be surprised if there’s a little Dolly Parton in there.
