Atlanta-based actor/writer/performance artist Scott Turner Schofield brings his new one-man show, Becoming a Man in 127 Easy Steps, to Little Five Points' 7 Stages from Jan. 31-Feb. 3. It's entirely possible that the title is both playful and literal, since Schofield, formerly Kt Kilborn, is a woman-to-man transgender artist and his energetic, accessible work explores his personal transition. Reportedly he lowers himself from the ceiling to begin a show that he calls, "a roller coaster ride through your heart, your soul, and your genitals!"
I wrote the Creative Loafing cover story "I Changed My Sex. Now What?" on Schofield in 2006, and found him to be not only extremely likable, but a candid, illuminating guide through transgender issues, which can have mazelike complexities. Following his previous one-man shows Underground TRANSit and Debutante Balls, Becoming a Man in 127 Easy Steps promises to be another funny, revealing portrayal of one of Atlanta's most interesting personalities. The performance also comes in advance of Schofield's new book, Two Truths and a Lie, due to be published this winter.
