Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps

Irreverent and dynamic, graceful and playful, Becoming A Man In 127 EASY Steps engages the deep questions and the locker room jokes about what it means to “become” a man. Moving beyond the transgender narrative that focuses on the experience of transition, Scott Turner Schofields’ stories explore the drama and hilarity of living a new life in the “opposite” gender. The show’s “choose your own adventure” format invites patrons to decide live which stories they will hear during each performance.

Schofield is a writer, performer and educator creating theater about gender and sexuality in the Deep South. He is also a man who was a woman and a lesbian turned straight guy. Schofield became the first openly transgender actor on daytime television, and the first female-to-male person in a major recurring role on broadcast TV, as Nick on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful.
