Now Miller is battening down the hatches for a different sort of cyclone: the denial of rights of immigration for foreign-born partners. If they want to continue their relationship of nine years, Miller and his partner Alistair, who is of Australian-Scottish background, face getting the boot from the United States, which allows straight couples the right to have a foreign-born partner immigrate. Expect to experience a little bit of all those tempests, plus a little good-humored nod to Broadway and a meditation on the meaning of home, when Miller offers his solo piece Us (which, don't say we didn't warn you, contains nudity) during an installment of Miami Light Project's Come Out Laughing series.
Any deeply thoughtful and possibly butt-baring political discussion should be leavened with a bit of humor. That's where comedian Jessica Kirson comes in. Appearing for the second time in a Miami Light Project production, Kirson might be most familiar to fans for her numerous TV appearances, especially as a contestant on the highly popular NBC show Last Comic Standing, sort of a humorous Ten Little Indians. The energetic entertainer peppers her stand-up routines with an array of hilarious characters including an uptight librarian, an exasperating British child, and a boisterous cabaret singer. Could a stuffy Supreme Court justice be next on her list to perfect? -- Nina Korman
