Two weeks from tonight, on Cinco de Mayo, Dallas’ live storytelling series Oral Fixation will complete its overwhelmingly popular 3rd season at AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Wyly Theatre with a dynamic and diverse evening of outrageously juicy true tales on the theme “The Whole Enchilada.” It’s been an amazing season and they plan on going out with a bang.
The biggest catch of this cast is undoubtedly Mico Rodriguez of “Mr Mesero” (and of course founder of Mi Cocina) fame who will come out of the shadows to share his fascinating tale of success and struggle in the Tex Mex biz. Mico is this fantastic storyteller, who often conjures these intricate back stories for his restaurants. Also noteworthy are a Dallas Observer writer’s raunchy play-by-play at a recent enchilada-eating contest and a woman’s remarkable journey through evangelism and sexuality conversion therapy to accepting herself as she is.
