Rose Mallett has captured the essence [...]
Rose Mallett has captured the essence of vocal delivery that some say reminds them of the range and texture of Sarah Vaughan the joy and playfulness of Ella Fitzgerald the foreboding pain of Billie Holiday and the regal articulation of Lena Horne. Her voice is simply beautiful.

LET THE SIN BEGIN! The creator of Sordid Lives is back [...]
LET THE SIN BEGIN! The creator of Sordid Lives is back with all new hysterical, sordid stories. This time, Del discusses the unexpected comedy of returning to the world of dating after divorce. Tinder, Grindr, Scruff, OkCupid — oh, sh*t, sometimes it’s just too damn much! He shares a litany of bad dates and the trials and tribulations of trying to be a slut again when you are a “minor gay celebrity”.
Did his movie Sordid Lives really influence six different women to super-glue their cheating boyfriends and husband’s dicks to their stomachs?
And of course, Del shares more letters from the haters and his P.S.F.U. responses. Also, more celebrity dish, including Dolly Parton, George Lopez and Leslie Jordan. The censors will be absent, F bombs will fly and if you are easily offended — stay home!
“Del Shores is a master of the Texas comedy.” Los Angeles Times
Del Shores has written, directed and produced successfully across studio and independent film, network and cable television as well as theatre.
Shores’ career took off with the play Daddy’s Dyin’ (Who’s Got The Will?) in 1987, which ran two years, winning many Los Angeles theatre awards, including LA Weekly’s Best Production and Best Writing. The play has subsequently been produced in over 2,500 theatres worldwide. A movie version of Daddy’s Dyin’ was released in 1990 by MGM starring Beau Bridges, Tess Harper, Judge Reinhold, Keith Carradine and Beverly D’Angelo. Shores wrote the
screenplay and executive produced the film.
Sordid Lives, his fourth play, opened in Los Angeles in 1996 and ran 13 sold-out months. The play went on to win 14 Drama-Logue Theatre Awards, including three for Shores for wring, directing and producing. There have since been over 300 additional stage productions of the play.
