Hello Ricky Nelson, Goodbye Heart
Frank and Katrina Basile Theater, History Center
Barbara McBride-Smith transports you from the ancient world of the Greek gods and goddesses to the post-modern experiences of her Baby Boomer generation, narrates the lives of shady ladies and bad boys of the Bible, navigates literature with the heart and soul of a librarian, identifies with country music and rock n’ roll, and interprets it all with a Texas-born cheerleader’s perspective. Entertainer, historian, preacher and storyteller all rolled into one, Barbara McBride-Smith serves up sweet truth with a side of southern grit.
“Thanks to Barbara McBride-Smith, I’m a storytelling convert. Her performance of the Ricky Nelson story was a walk down memory lane. I laughed and I cried but, most of all, I remembered. I think all of us who grew up in the 1950’s and 60’s got to go back ‘home’ for a little while. It was wonderful to be there!” – Troy Messenger, June 2010.
