New Centerstage Review Up

I reviewed a one-woman show, “Untangling at the Junction,” by Daaimah Mubashshir. It’s a semi-autobiographical show about being a queer Muslim woman in America, and it’s a great concept but a  rough show. It was frustrating to see her stumble over some lines, but it was fascinating to see a work in progress, one that she’s workshopping before taking it on the road. I really enjoyed the audience talkback, and Mubashshir and her director seemed interested in all of the suggestions. Here’s an excerpt of the review:

“The Untangling at The Junction” affords Chicagoans the rare opportunity to engage directly with the writer and director in a discussion about the play at hand. Daaimah Mubashshir’s one-woman show explores the intricacies of being queer and Muslim in America, in an often powerful performance.
