Rude Mechs, the crazy-as-a-fox performance troupe from Austin, Texas, loves  throwing audiences for a loop. Why, our wacky friends from the Lone Star State  have returned to host a little shindig. What could be more normal than seeing  wieners roasting in the theater’s men’s room and the lobby decked out like a  country fair for our intermission pleasure?"

- Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

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. 

Don’t you dare miss it!

" the Drink and Stink Saloon the turkey chili is quite tasty..."

- Bob Verini, Variety

DouglasPlus is an eclectic mix of theatre choices, ranging from fully-staged or minimally-staged events to workshops and readings that utilize both traditional and non-traditional performance spaces and seating configurations within the theatre. Each presentation has a very limited number of performances. Funding for DouglasPlus is provided by The James Irvine Foundation’s Artistic Innovation Fund and the “Leading for the Future Initiative,” a program of the Nonprofit Finance Fund, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
