Disabled roles and actors are in the theater spotlight
"Northern Lights Southern Cross" has been selling out performances at the Dowling Studio at the Guthrie Theater for the last couple weeks.
The play, written by and starring Kevin Kling, features an international cast of actors with handicaps and able-bodied performers.
