Help us celebrate the opening night of Sordid Lives on Oct. 6th! Austin Rainbow Theater is a new member of the Austin LGBT Chamber and we are so excited to have their ribbon cutting on Opening Night before the show. The pre-show mixer and Ribbon Cutting will begin at 7PM with a champagne toast for those with tickets.
There will also be an after-show mixer with complimentary sips from Deep Eddy Vodka.
Austin Rainbow Theatre presents their inaugural production of Del Shores’ raucous Texas comedy Sordid Lives at Ground Floor Theatre October 6-14th. This production stars nationally-acclaimed drag entertainer and local celebrity Nadine Hughes as Brother Boy, a role previously made famous by the late Leslie Jordan. Written by trailblazing playwright & “master of Texas Comedy”, Del Shores, this hilarious romp is filled with southern charm and underscores what it means to be queer in Texas. Get tickets to the show.
