Writer/Director/Producer Del Shores is featured on this episode of Notes From Hollywood® days before his play, This Side of Crazy, opens for one weekend only at Palm Springs’ celebrated Palm Canyon Theater (PCT). PromoHomo.TV® Producer/Host Nicholas Snow has been reporting about Del and his work for decades (and Snow once appeared in a PCT production of Jesus Christ Superstar).
Announced the fine folks with PCT, “The Del Shores and Palm Springs love affair continues with the Palm Springs premiere of, This Side of Crazy. Mr. Shores, who loves Palm Springs, stated ‘It was almost as if Palm Springs adopted Sordid Lives; it became theirs.’ Due to its continued popularity and cult following, Palm Canyon Theatre just performed its eighth production of Sordid Lives this September. The theatre’s co-artistic director, Se Layne states ‘I’m so excited that Palm Canyon Theatre will be the first production in Palm Springs of this soon-to-be classic, This Side of Crazy.'”
Opening night, Thursday, November 18, will be a very special evening at Palm Canyon Theatre. Del Shores will join us live at the theatre to introduce the show and will participate in audience Q&A after the show. All Del Shores fans will not want to miss out on this very special personal appearance and opportunity to ask him questions.
Rachel, the oldest sister, who lives with Ditty, is furious when she finds out that her baby sister Bethany, an atheist and lesbian, and Abigail, her middle sister, who has “anger issues” and currently is confined to a mental facility, are headed home. These complicated sisters have been estranged for over twenty-five years — and extreme past circumstances, including a husband left in a coma, have made reconciliation impossible. Once reunited, secrets are revealed, tempers flare and family wounds are exposed. But… the show must go on!
