Brought back by popular demand, this stunning tour de force starring CJ Lewis graces the NHTP stage for the second time.   I Am My Own Wife explores the astonishing true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a transvestite and celebrated antiques dealer who successfully navigated the two most oppressive regimes of the past century – the Nazis and the Communists. Critics have acclaimed Doug Wright’s morally complex tale as an “intriguing meditation on what it takes to be a survivor.” The original Broadway production won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the 2004 Drama Desk Award, and 2004 Tony Awards for Outstanding Play & Outstanding Solo Performance. NHTP's 2015 production was the winner of the 2016 Spotlight Special Award for Excellence in Theatre.

Everything about this production is impeccable... I Am My Own Wife is simply incredible artistry.  A riveting tale performed by an exceptional actor.  Every element is right, and Lewis brilliant - Spotlight Review
