Gordy

with No Comments

Say Gordy in the Black Hills, no surname needed, and most locals know you mean Gordy Pratt -- a versatile one man show. He's a classically trained guitarist who often puts his instrument to work in a decidedly non-classical way. Gordy is a comedian and also performs fast-paced, one-character historical plays. For example, he'll portray Seth Bullock, the Deadwood lawman and town-builder, at Deadwood's Adams Museum, June 11-26, 11:30 and 1:30 pm. Mr. Bullock's language was pretty salty on HBO's Deadwood series, but he's family-friendly in Gordy's show. Will there be music? Count on it!
