Meet The Mengelkoch Sisters
Twins Kelly and Kristen Mengelkoch haven’t shared a stage since their high school days in Wichita, Kansas, but at least they’re in the same city this month: Kelly, a 13-year veteran of Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, gets to watch Kristen perform in the Broadway tour of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder at the Aronoff Center (Jan 3–8). We chatted with the duo about style, aspirations, and weird wardrobes.
