Rebecca Kling – NO GENDER LEFT BEHIND
As busy as CHICAGO IRL contributor Rebecca Kling has been after writing and preparing for the tour of No Gender Left Behind we were ever more grateful when offered a sneak preview as the opening number at the launch party.
All we can say is if you are in one of the below touring cities fucking get in on it and tell all of your friends dammit! This one is not to be missed! It is rare we get the chance to listen to such an incredible, impeccably funny, intimate and relevant storyteller.
