Hello I’m Ravyn LaRue! :)

I love art, especially writing, drawing, performing, and photography! :)

I hope you enjoy the things I make! :) Have a lovely day! :)

I don’t hesitate to tell people that ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ saved my life. At the stage door of the Belasco theater, I yelled out to Lena and Andrew, “This show means the world to me!” and “Hedwig saved my life!” amidst the sea of selfies, HedHeads (the patiently waiting fans) and autographs. It isn’t difficult for me to make my absolute adoration of this show known, and yet the reasons why it means so much to me aren’t exactly simple to explain, particularly in under five hundred words.

When recently prompted to explain why I chose to leave Columbia College Chicago, I came up with the phrase, “priorities realized”, which is the best way that I’ve found to express what happened. I unfortunately had my first experience with outward homophobia directed at me on an especially frequent basis. Due to the way bigotry made itself known, I found myself realizing how lucky I had been in the past to find camaraderie in theatre and community in queerness. In my search to find something like that on my own in Chicago, I wound up discovering Hedwig instead.

Each night as I struggled to reconcile the prevalent anti-queer words and actions I was surrounded by, with my dreams of Columbia College Chicago being a welcoming artistic community, I listened to the song ‘Wicked Little Town’. The night before my nineteenth birthday, in my insomnia driven introspection, I began to realize I was reverting back to being the person I was before I valued my own voice (both proverbially and literally).

Upon that realization, I did what I felt I had to do. I barricaded myself in the university center practice room and sang ‘Wicked Little Town’ with the voice I could feel relapsing. I sang with all the volume and wholeness I could muster from my verklempt vocal folds. I left Columbia College Chicago soon after.

I reassessed my priorities after returning home to Minnesota, and discovered, through ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’, that theatre in all its life-saving glory made me teem with more passion than anything else I aspired towards since graduating Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists. Because of this, ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ not only kept me going in times of extreme turmoil which I didn’t expect to survive, but also reminded me and reconfirmed what my calling is.

Subsequently, I proudly proclaim to friends, family, strangers, Andrew Rannells, Lena Hall, and you, dear reader, that ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ is the reason I’m still alive.
