Mexistani! is a funny and powerful one woman show that speaks to the modern American experience. Sofie brings to the stage not only her own humor and talent but also brings alive the colorful characters of her family. Run, don't walk, to see this show! ... full review

Sofie Khan is a masterful storyteller who had me in a whirlwind of emotions. A true tour-de-force, I was fully engaged the entire time. Sofie weaves a beautiful story which includes her life growing up, her parents and her experiences being Mexican and Pakistani among other things. She commands the stage in such an energetic and passionate way, it is quite wonderful to see. I loved watching her story unfold in front of my eyes. Do not miss this show! Only one performance left!!!... full review

One of the ten Fringe Scholarship winners (awarded to shows that expand and diversify the Fringe community), charismatic comic Sofie Khan grew up with a Mexican Catholic mother and a Pakistani Muslim father in a predominantly Black and Puerto Rican Chicago neighborhood. Such a multi-culti stew makes for a deliciously funny and poignant solo show. Creating a solo show is not easy. It takes more than having a charismatic performer and good story.

Sofie Khan has a powerful stage presence and tells a very engaging story of growing up bi-cultural and being bi-sexual in the US. Her sensitivity, understanding and willingness to bring voice to her very personal story of multiculturalism in today's world where unnecessary persecution remains far too common is both refreshing and much needed. She does this all with warmth and genuine connection. Sofie also has a damn good rap and a great sense of humor! ... full review


A show beyond this reality? A one-man cabaret about never, EVER fitting in. Told through four days in the 90's. Described as, "Reinventing the form," "amateur," "musically outstanding," "a waste of time," "earnest, heartbreaking, & real."

$7 tickets for 6/20 show code: NIGHTOWL

Jessica awakens from hypnotherapy remembering all of her past lives. And that her therapist has been the love of her life in every lifetime. In this dark romantic comedy, she hopes to finally get it right, or at least not get murdered this time.
