    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents: Transamerica. Felicity Huffman delivers a Golden Globe-winning performance as Bree Osbourne, a conservative transsexual woman who has been scheduled for the official male-to-female surgery. Before she can get there, however, she receives a call from Toby, a 17-year-old boy looking for his father. Bree disguises herself as a Christian social worker and goes to bail Toby out of jail in New York and take him back to Los Angeles. Along the way, however, Bree must decide what information to divulge to her son, and what situation would be the best for both of them. This twist on the traditional family drama looks at the expectations we place on each other and the bonds that extend beyond gender.
