If there is a silver lining to Del Shores’ recent break-up with husband Jason Dottley, it’s that it has brought Shores back on the road – with a whole new array of material.
The playwright behind “Sordid Lives” returns Aug. 17 to Onstage Atlanta with his new “Naked. Sordid. Reality.”
The news that Shores and Dottley were divorcing after 10 years together came as a shock to the performer, although some in the LGBT community had questioned Dottley’s motives.
“It was abrupt and it was planned,” says Shores. “I didn’t see it coming. I was devastated. It’s been hard, but I knew I needed to get back on the road, to hear the energy and laughter.”
