Kevin Kling and Simone Perrin – After Hours

Kevin and Simone

Kevin Kling is from Minneapolis, Minnesota where he lives on purpose because “when you freeze paradise it lasts a little longer.” He has performed his stories in libraries, schools, The Kennedy Center, Off-Broadway, and storytelling festivals around the US. His adventures abroad include tours of Australia, Europe, and Thailand. Kling has been a commentator on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered and was the subject of the Emmy-winning PBS documentary “Kevin Kling: Lost & Found.”  He often works with Interact Theater, a company of performers with and without disabilities, exploring how, through our stories, we are connected.
