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.


Tickets are available for purchase at $20 through ART’s website at All performances will be held at Ground Floor Theatre. Our Saturday 2 PM matinee performances will feature ASL interpreters for the hearing impaired community.
