5. THEATER: Brahman/i: A One-Hijra Stand Up Comedy Show
Structured as a comedy routine, this is actually a provocative exploration of gender, sexuality, history, mythology, and high school, all from the perspective of an Indian intersex person, or hijra. Fawzia Mirza stars in Aditi Brennan Kapil’s play, having its Chicago premiere in a co-production by About Face Theater and Silk Road Rising, directed by About Face artistic director Andrew Volkoff. Opens Thursday at the Chicago Temple and runs through April 27; order tickets here. — Trudy Ring
