"How to be a Korean Woman" - Guthrie (Dowling Theater)

How to Be a Korean Woman is a hilarious, heartfelt and personal telling of Korean-American adoptee Sun Mee Chomet's search for her birth family in Seoul, South Korea. This poignant one-woman show -- told from the perspective of an adult adoptee -- uses text, music and movement to explore themes of family, love, adulthood and the universal longing to know one's past.

Purchase your ticket on your own. Admission is general seating--we can gather as a group in the lobby of the theater and sit as a group if we wish.
More from the Guthrie website: On the heels of Chomet's two sold-out Twin Cities engagements, the Guthrie is thrilled to welcome her groundbreaking production to the Dowling Studio for just four performances. Secure your tickets today! Seating in the Dowling Studio is general admission and begins 30 minutes before curtain.
Written and performed by Sun Mee Chomet (The Burial at Thebes, The Intelligent Homosexual..., The Two Gentlemen of Verona)
Directed and dramaturged by Zaraawar Mistry

    I went (not my dog) to the show, but couldn't find anyone who looked like Kathy A or Mona (I checked out your pics before I came). Went to lobby for 15 minutes, then up to 9th floor about half an hour before the performance. The performance was wonderful and sad at the same time. I loved it.
    Next time, could we be more descriptive about where to meet for a meet up location? I still had a great time and was glad I attended. Thank you Kathy for organizing the event.

    It was my first one actress show, and I enjoyed it very much. The play was emotional and very entertaining too. Thank you Kathy for organizing it.

    Not sure who all actually attended, but four of us went out after the talk-back session to discuss it, which was fun. Emotionally powerful performance--I feel I learned a lot.

    Sorry, overslept but needed it, not feeling well. So I'm going to be one of those annoying last minute cancels.

    I will be taking light rail and live "south of the river" in Apple Valley. Contact me if anyone would like to carpool with me to the most southern light rail station (next to MOA) or meet at the station.

      I will be taking the light rail from the Bloomington Central Station by the Health Partners Bldg (2nd stop from MOA). I live next door. I will try to get on by 12:00 PM.

    Thank you, DeLia and Mona, for the info about the pre-paid parking vouchers from the Guthrie box office! Just called and it worked so slick--they said they can e-mail the voucher for you to print out at home, and even if the ramp says "Full," if you have purchased a voucher you have a guaranteed spot. (You must have purchased a theater ticket for the appropriate day to be eligible to buy a voucher.)

    Another note: I will be driving from approx. 40th Ave NE & Johnson St, so carpooling is an option. If you are interested in that, please send me an e-mail message through the system (just click on my name.)

    From the Guthrie Theater:
    Due to the Vikings game it’s possible that many parking lots in the neighborhood will raise their rates early to an average event parking rate of $20.00 and parking will be limited. Through a special arrangement with the City of Minneapolis, Guthrie patrons can guarantee parking by pre-purchasing a parking voucher for the Riverfront Parking Ramp across the street from the theater for $8.00. To purchase a parking voucher call the Guthrie Box Office at[masked] or[masked]STAGE; the deadline to order a pre-paid voucher and have it emailed to you is Friday, September 20 at noon. Please share this information with other ticket holders in your party.

    Thanks for letting us know about the Vikings game. I was trying to decide whether to drive or take the light rail. I'll take the light rail!

    Just an FYI (on the Guthrie website): There is a Vikings game at noon that day so get there early. Plan on heavier traffic and increaed parking fees. You csn buy $8 parking vouchers in advance

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
