Becoming Kinky: Some Things Beat Being Governor

Check out our a slideshow from the play's opening night.

What a smooth, hilarious thing the opening and world premiere of Becoming Kinky: The World According To Kinky Friedman was Monday night at the Mucky Duck, with the Kinkster himself gazing on.

By the time the first public performance was over, it was former Houstonian Ted Swindley's gently conceived script - careful not to go over the top but filled with pungent Kinksterisms - that won over the entire crowd, which included trial lawyer Dick DeGuerin and family, local socialite Kimberly DeLape, co-producer Carolyn Farb, and a phalanx of shutter-clicking photographers.
