CHICAGO – The issue of gender identity, especially for those who are born with a vagueness as to what to call themselves between/beyond boy and girl, has come front and center in the U.S., both with the legalization of gay marriage and the callous repudiation of identity by trying to pass laws dismissing it (the North Carolina “bathroom” laws). The performance companies of The Living Canvas and Nothing Without a Company is currently staging “[Trans]formation,” which presents gender identity art by six performers, who perform most of the play in the nude.

Here is the plot description for “Letters to Juliet”:
When a young American (Amanda Seyfried) travels to the city of Verona – home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of “Romeo & Juliet” fame – she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love.
After answering one letter dated back to 1957, she inspires its author (Vanessa Redgrave) to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love. This sets off a chain of events that will bring a love into both their lives unlike anything they ever imagined.
