“A brilliant portrait of a murderer, with a
supernatural sizzle & a serious gender flip...”
The Alchemy of Gender is my autobiographical solo show, which I’ve toured to fabulous reviews from L.A. to London and through twenty other cities. In it I play Hamlet, Richard III, Shylock, and other great male characters.

Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender
is beyond and about gender - an actor's journey written and performed by Lisa Wolpe, acclaimed Shakespearean Drag King. It's pages are torn from the libraries of the great Elizabethan Renaissance Mystery Schools. This is the story of a masterful performer peeking through the veil, a cosmic cartographer celebrating Shakespeare's most powerful work. Wolpe reveals the physical and spiritual secrets of cross-gender performance, and offers a rare insight into the making of the Great Bard's magic. A one-woman show, written, directed, and performed by Lisa Wolpe.
