Most Fabulous Protest

“Lighthearted farce” turns into a public land mine — and the arts community now plans a peaceful protest to counteract political backlash.


Features

Mark Beutler
What started out to be a small, largely unnoticed production by OKC Theater Company has turned into a First Amendment fight, as well as a battle against Oklahoma City’s gay and lesbian community, claim supporters of the production of The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told.

Most Fabulous donation

One believer donated $100 for each religious leader who signed the petition against the show, organizers said. That’s $7,400.


Features

Making headlines the past couple of weeks has been a small play by OKC Theatre Company and a letter from a group of pastors demanding the play be closed. The ruckus over The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told has actually resulted in the theater company receiving several large donations. Artistic Director Rachel Irick said an anonymous donor contributed $7,400. That’s $100 for every pastor’s name on the letter.

So there’s this basketball team here in OKC called the Thunder. You may have heard of them? Well, they’re kind of good at sports and stuff (like, really good), and their games are as electric in person as the team’s name would suggest. See them play the Brooklyn Nets 7 p.m. Thursday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. Call 602-8700 or visit nba.com/thunder.

Saddle up, partner. Comedian Cowboy Bill Martin wants to make you hee-haw (that’s laugh, for you city folk).

See him perform 7:30 and 10 p.m. Tuesday, 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 8 p.m. Sunday at The Loony Bin, 8503 N. Rockwell Ave. Tickets are $8-$30.
