Oh man guys, if you missed this show, you really missed out.
What was originally planned as a normal, run of the mill Rocky show at the Inwood Theatre took on special importance after the events of June 26, when the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. Los Bastardos and Rocky casts in general are gay-friendly by default, if not actively recruiting people into non-traditional sexualities. In celebration of love winning out in the end, we gayed it up even harder than normal for this show. We pulled out every piece of rainbow everything we could find, and likely bought out every color of makeup within several miles. It was a glorious display of support for a decision that, much like one of Alex’s orgasms, too far too long to come.
Tonight also saw the debut of the lovely Manda as Magenta, and she absolutely killed it (not killed them, technically that’s still Riff’s job). What a talented, beautiful, amazing, sexy and totally not standing behind me with a large blunt object while I’m writing this woman. Totally.
Sadly, as one person comes into her own in a new role, another leaves. The lovely Heather Biondini played Columbia tonight, in her last show for the foreseeable future. We wish her the best of luck as she steps away to focus on other pursuits. If you just can’t get enough Biondini in your life, go check out Ootori Group Cosplay on Facebook.
The Gay Train packed the Inwood Theatre for this show with a bevy of fans helping us celebrate all those sweet, delicious new marriage rights we’ll never use because we’re all horrible black hearted monsters. Being ever-so-adaptable we were able to fight our way through a few minor technical glitches to bring you the best show you can see on a Saturday night in Dallas. We started the evening with Virgin Games brought to us by the lovely Brooklyn, who managed to find a gaggle of noobs who could finally form a rainbow without speaking to one another (after already being given a second shot, christ they’re thick). Yay, the terrorists (or Greg Abbott) didn’t win!
As the movie began we had initially planned on having all of the same-sex couples in the audience come up as Ralph and Betty for the wedding scene, but we could only find two couples. Hopefully the rest were busy on their hastily-planned honeymoons after Friday’s announcement. Saturday’s show had a little bit of everything: birthday shenanigans for our favorite (and only) Jenny, a brand new Magenta and Jessi’s questionably legal nipples. No better way to celebrate post-Gay Day!
If you feel bad for missing this month’s show… well, you should, it was fantastic. But don’t fret! We’ll be coming back to the Inwood Theatre on July 25! Until then: keep it real, keep it gay and keep it real gay!*
