RIFFS 2014
A Swingin' Review from TheatreJones
March 28, 2014
The Passing Show

His Royal Hipness Lord Buckley, Solid with All He Surveys, and a mere 87 years after he first hit the boards at the Aztec Theater in San Antonio, will materialize once again in Dallas, Texas at the Ochre Theater for a spectacle that is being billed as "The Passing Show".

Written and directed by Matthew Posey the show promises to be another far out and with it expedition into that mystical realm where intrepid and swingin' mortals conjure The Lord from beyond the Waygonesphere. Channeling The Lord will be Ben Bryant a local Dallas thespian with a pretty swingin' look and presence. Amongst other riffs he will be hipping the populance in Hipsemantic Shakespeare to the trials, tribulations and bring downs of King Lear, a king freak if ever there was one. Adding the heat to the beat the whole affair is backed by a two piece jazz band featuring Justin Locklear and Trey Pendergrass.

Lone Star hipsters should plan to attend as it is altogether groovy and exceedingly rare when The Coolest One of All Kick Bumps makes the scene.
