Tomorrow night (Wednesday) ‘Sordid Lives: The Series’ begins on LOGO TV. The movie Sordid Lives was fantastic and I expect the show to be too.
Del Shores is also the author of the play ‘Southern Baptist Sissies’ which I saw first in Los Angeles (thank you, Michael) and then when it was done here at South Puget Sound Community College, but I heard about the movie ‘Sordid Lives’ long before that from our friend Dan in Seattle (thank you, Dan!)

NEW YORK – On “Sordid Lives: The Series,” the colorful folk in a certain Texas town are back in action after having won an avid following with the 1996 play and 2000 movie of the same name.
… a gripping, provocative pop opera about students during their senior year in a private Catholic preparatory academy and their struggles with first love, sexuality, drugs, parents, and religion. A cross between Rent and Dead Poet’s Society, bare tells of the relationship among a group of friends, including the secret lives of altar boy Peter and his roommate, the popular Jason.
The Seattle premiere of this hit Off-Broadway musical is performed by enormously talented students aged 17-20 who won their roles in a vigorous competition for 13 exclusive spots in ArtsWest’s award-winning Musical Theater Apprentice Program.
