I have much love for my fellow Texan Scott Turner Schofield (he was born in San Antonio), who last year made a little history by becoming the first out trans actor on daytime television as Maya Avant Forrester’s friend Nick on the CBS soap the Bold And The Beautiful.
I had the pleasure of seeing Scott’s humorous one act play Debutante Balls while I was in Provincetown, MA last year at Fantasia Fair to pick up the Virginia Prince Transgender Pioneer Award, and understand Scott has another one act play he is preforming called Becoming A Man In 127 Easy Steps.
So what’s it about? It’s irreverent and dynamic, graceful and playful, Becoming A Man In 127 EASY Steps engages the deep questions and the locker room jokes about what it means to “become” a man.
Moving beyond the transgender narrative that focuses on the experience of transition, Scott Turner Schofield’s 127 stories explore the drama and hilarity of living a new life in the “opposite” gender.
Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps has toured the world for nearly a decade to rave reviews, making a deep impact in every community in which it plays. It is an award-winning glimpse into the real life of one transgender man whose artistry as a writer and performer has achieved the highest critical acclaim.
Becoming a Man in 127 Easy Steps will be in Chicago at the Center on Halsted’s Hoover-Leppen Theater on September 12 starting at 7 PM. Tickets are $25,but no one will be turned away for lack of funds if you wish to see it because it’s only going to be in the Windy City for one night only.
Check it out. You’ll be glad you did. Registering for seats is highly recommended and you can do that at this link.
Hope you peeps in Chitown pack the theater for it, and tell Scott i said hello when you do..
