Neither green skies nor tornadoes over Tarrant County could stop Los Bastardos’ triumphant return to Fort Worth at the beautiful Ridglea Theater! A loud, proud and sexy crowd braved wind, rain and I-30 traffic to come out and get rowdy with us for the first time in a new venue. We’ve always had a solid following in Fort Worth and it means a lot you all came out to support us last night.
The Ridglea Theater’s setup made for a show unlike many in our recent past: mainly because it’s an actual stage meant for live performances. Our cast took full advantage of all the extra room and put on one hell of a memorable performance. The staff of the Ridglea Theater deserves a special thank you for their hard work and patience in helping us entertain the good folks of Fort Worth. Especially the bartenders, who help make us better looking and funnier with the magical power of alcohol!
While we’re doling out special thanks, a few specific people deserve shouts: Brent for putting together the hilarious DVD loop for preshow, Danny for his work on light board, and LB alumnus Bizah for jumping in and working sales for us before the show. You can take the girl out of the Bastards, but you can’t ever take the Bastard out of the girl.
The show itself went fantastic, with veteran Frank player Jenny chewing the scenery while scaring the shit out of little Heather Biondini as Janet. Gus returned to the stage as Brad for the first time in a long time, while Brooklyn, Jon and Megaaan tore it up as Columbia, Riff and Magenta respectively. Baldwin looked strong as Rocky, Gregg rolled around as Dr. Scott and Super Sexy Sean got his pants off as Criminologist, somehow.
Why were his pants off, anyway?
Don’t miss your next opportunity to get on the Hot Mess Express at our next Ridglea Theater show on May 23! After that, check us out at our home theater, the Inwood, on May 30!
