A letter to my ex

the musical

In A Letter to My Ex, the musical, Composer and vocalist Be Steadwell tells stories of love, loss and intimacy.  Following the 2018 release of her album “Queer Love Songs”, Steadwell brings her album to life through theater. A Letter to My Ex is a collage of music, movement and film, narrating one character’s journey through the year following a breakup.

The piece is presented through a series of letters to an ex.  Each letter coupled with a song.  Each moment, a reflection on the process of grieving the loss of love and learning to move on.  A letter to my ex explores self love, addiction, twerking, sex, life and death through the lens of a heartbroken queer black woman. 

In 2019, A letter to my ex hosted two sold out runs.  First, in Mount rainier MD, and the second run went up in Oakland CA. 


In September 2019, Joe's Movement emporium in Mount Rainier MD will host the third run of the musical.
