Uncovering the Mirrors debuts a week from tomorrow. Have you bought your tickets yet?

I had a chance to speak with Behind the Fringe recently, and they’ve just posted that interview. Here’s an excerpt:

BTF: How and when did [your show] come about?

RK: Uncovering the Mirrors has been forming for at least twelve years, when I stood awkwardly in front of friends and family and had a Bar Mitzvah. Because having a Bar Mitzvah – a ceremony at¬†thirteen for Jewish boys to become Jewish men – just sucks when what you really want is to be a girl. Ever since then, I’ve been trying to find that perfect ceremony to say, “No, wait. There’s been a mistake. See, I’m not really a boy. Isn’t there some way I can have a do-over?” But while working on this show, I realized the issue is larger than me: we should all be allowed to decide which parts of ourselves make up our identities. This show is my own contribution toward that end.

Read the full interview here. I’ve also been interviewed by the Chicago Sun Times blog,¬† as well as having coverage appear in the Evanston Review and Steadystyle Chicago.
