How to Be a Korean Woman

Local readers should know that Sun Mee Chomet's one-woman play, How to Be a Korean Woman, will be opening the Guthrie Theaters's new season in the Dowling Studio.

When I saw the show last year, I was overwhelmed by how good it was and how much it affected me. It makes the complex issue of transnational adoption resonant and personal.

Chomet recently returned from performing the show in Seoul for adoptees from over a dozen  countries. That must have been an incredible experience. Here's a short trailer some friends of hers made about the show:

There will be talk-backs after each show with Chomet, adoptee scholars, and national leaders on the topic. 

The run is only from September 19 - 22, and it's not a big theater, so get tickets soon: 612-377-2224 or online. I fully expect it to sell out.
