More Information


The Rude Mechs’ uber-physical, riotously unconventional The Method Gun was a monster hit at the Douglas last season.

Now they’re back and bringing the party: I’ve Never Been So Happy — a transmedia hootenanny centered around a western operetta filled with ballads, heavy metal, opera and R&B!

When a mother ties her son to a mountain lion to make him strong and a father won’t allow his daughter out of the house to protect her virtue, it’s gonna take a Texas-sized, foot  stompin’, genre rompin’ sensory assault to bring these star-crossed lovers together.

And if that isn’t enough, smack in the middle is an intermission shindig — an interactive carnivalesque performance party. Be sure to save room for Texas Trash Bags from Tub’s Fine Chili & Fancy Fixin’s and drinks at the saloon with the town gossip on hand to stir the pot and cause a ruckus.
