The Glass Menagerie
by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Denise Schulz

Location: The Vortex Theatre

Dates: March 13 through April 5
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Drama

Description: The play is introduced to the audience by Tom, the narrator and protagonist, as a memory play based on his recollection of his mother Amanda and his sister Laura. Amanda is obsessed with finding a suitor for Laura, largely because Amanda is so fearful that there will be no one to care for Laura if she doesn't marry. Tom brings a friend, Jim, home to dinner and Jim and Laura talk and reminisce about their high school days together. But Jim is already engaged and will only encourage Laura to become less self-conscious. Amanda's disappointment causes her to lash out at Tom. As Tom speaks at the end of the play, it becomes clear that he left home soon afterward and did not return.

The Chupacabra Cantina
Written and performed by Las Meganenas.
Part of Siembra: Latino Theatre Festival at the National Hispanic Cultural Center
r

Location: NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium

Dates: March 19-29
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Drama

Description: Enter the Chupacabra Cantina in northern New Mexico, where anti-GMO nuns, a bartender, and an unexpected guest plant seeds of social justice amid the daily chatter of community gossip and Fox News reports blaring in the background. Stories from Tierra Amarilla, Palestine, and around the globe are woven into the fabric of the characters’ lives, moving them to question what kind of seeds they are planting, and whether they are feeding the “chupacabra.” Accompanied by live music and song, the show is co-presented by Las Meganenas, and is also part of Women & Creativity 2015, an annual month-long series of programming that celebrates women’s creativity across disciplines.

The Chupacabra Cantina is written by Soledad Hindi, with contributions from Valerie Borrego, Vivian Fernandez Geilín, Maria Varela and Alicia Lueras Maldonado, and directed by Alicia Lueras Maldonado.

Las Meganenas (“the big girls”) is a troupe of Latina women operating from the core belief that its members hold a unique position in society, that of storytellers. It is through storytelling that a culture’s values, beliefs, and spirituality are conveyed indelibly to the listeners’ imaginations, allowing them to put themselves in others’ shoes. Las Meganenas tell stories through performance pieces related to global issues.

The chupacabra is a legendary creature rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats.

Produced by: Las Meganenas and the National Hispanic Cultural Center

Price: $18 general admission
$15 for students and seniors

Description: When a shy stranger knocks on the door of a penniless poet, looking for someone to light her candle, they both find that something more magical is kindled.

Thus begins one of the most beloved and tragic operas ever written, which continues to move audiences to tears with its tale of the doomed love between the poet Rodolfo and the seamstress Mimi. The tale is set against the backdrop of life in the Latin Quarter of Paris, with the lively and engaging characters of Musetta, Marcello and all the bohemians brought to life by the beautiful music of Puccini.

This production, designed by Lois Rhomberg, was described by the Albuquerque Journal as “stunning” and “authentically evoking fin de siècle Paris” with a “delightfully ramshackle” garret apartment.

This production is sure to sell out, so don’t delay--get your tickets early!

DelikateSSen
by Richard Atkins
Directed by Cheryl Atkins



This play contains strong language and representations of violence that some may find disturbing.

Location: The Adobe Theater

Dates: April 3-26
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus Thursday April 16, 7:30 pm (pay what you will)

Genre: Drama

Description: The World Premiere of this powerful and moving play. DelikateSSen chronicles the story of two brothers (performed by Richard Atkins and Scott Claunch), orphaned in the Holocaust, who own a struggling Jewish delicatessen in New York City, circa 1972. Their livelihood is threatened by a new, larger, German deli preparing to open across the street. The play follows the intense friction between the Jewish and German factions, and how that struggle profoundly affects the current and next generations of everyone in the story. Other members of the cast are Georgia Athearn, David Bentley, Marteena Bentley, Joel D. Miller, Ray Orley, Justin Raper, Sharon Sprague and Elliot Stenzel.

Playwright Richard Atkins (The Men of Mah Jongg) states, "We can never shy away from stories regarding the Holocaust, as we do a disservice to the survivors and their families as well as the memories of those lost and their relatives.” He says recent events, such as the killings at a Jewish deli during the recent Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, makes DelikateSSen quite timely. Atkins says anti-Semitism has grown at home and abroad, and “we need to prepare ourselves for what is to come."

Atkins’ wife Cheryl directs DelikateSSen, and says that while the play is angst-ridden, and very passionate, its underlying themes deal with forgiveness and love. “It’s a roller coaster of emotions,” she says, “that will have you thinking long after the curtain has fallen!"

DelikateSSen was one of six finalists from over four hundred scripts submitted to the prestigious Abingdon Theatre in New York City for the Christopher Brian Wolk playwriting award. Coincidentally, the Thursday evening performance on April 16 is on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Richard Atkins’ previous production at The Adobe in 2012 was The Men of Mah Jongg (which also featured Scott Claunch and Ray Orley) which he also wrote and directed. Being a playwright, Once again, Mark Medoff (best known as a writer who received a Tony Award for Children of a Lesser God and an Academy Award for the film script) is supporting Richard as Dramaturg.

Noises Off
by Michael Frayn
Directed by Henry Avery

Location: Albuquerque Little Theatre

Dates: April 10-26
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus Thursday April 23, 7:30 pm

Genre: Comedy

Description: Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” The play takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This comedy-within-a-comedy captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of “Nothing’s On” in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance toward the end of the run. Each performance is portrayed from behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a backstage farce of slamming doors, falling trousers and flying sardines!

Bless Me, Ultima
Based on the novel by Rudolfo Anaya
Directed by Valli Marie Rivera

Part of Siembra: Latino Theatre Festival

at the National Hispanic Cultural Center

Location: NHCC's Albuquerque Journal Theatre

Dates: April 16-19
Thursday-Saturday, 7:30 pm
Sunday, 2:00 pm

Genre: Drama

Description: Bless Me, Ultima, the play, is a story from the point of view of the Author, Tony, as a grown man remembering his childhood rites of passage that eventually turned him into the mature product of that experience. The Author needs to relearn the lessons of his childhood that were critical in forming the man he is today. He tries and rejects various beginnings in order to find his truth and to evoke Ultima’s blessings. He remembers a serious boy of six, attempting to make sense of the world around him and grappling with the opposing expectations of his parents. His mother’s farming family, the Lunas, and his father’s vaquero family, the Mares, battle over the right to claim the child’s future. From his first meeting with the mysterious Ultima, acurandera, who comes to live with his family, Tony turns to her for advice as he tries to understand himself and the conflicts and contradictions around him. Tony suffers life-changing experiences as he witnesses Lupito’s murder, Florence drowning, and Narciso’s murder by Tenorio. Ultima always comes to the rescue, consoling him, soothing his aching body with love, and calming his mind with wisdom. Tony learns with Ultima about the healing herbs, how to chant to the earth, and about the Golden Carp, a pagan God to the ancestral natives. As his enlightenment progresses, he realizes there are different views on how the world operates, and he struggles to decide which is the true one. Tony finds refuge in the company of Ultima. He feels empowered by Ultima’s faith and teachings to confront his fears, to learn of the grief that comes with change, and to accept the cultural and religious differences of his community, in the quest of his own destiny.

The time is the mid 1940’s at the end of World War II, and the place is Guadalupe, a rural town in east-central New Mexico.

In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play)
by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Joe Alberti

Location: The Vortex Theatre

Dates: April 17 through May 10
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Dramatic comedy

Description: In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play), is a comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity. Set in the 1880s at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre historical fact that doctors used vibrators to treat 'hysterical' women (and some men), the play centers on a doctor and his wife and how his new therapy affects their entire household.

In a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, proper gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating "hysteria" in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor's laboratory, his young and energetic wife tries to tend to their newborn daughter--and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. When a new "hysterical" patient and her husband bring a wet nurse and their own complicated relationship into the doctor's home, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.

Description: Moms will remember the familiar rhymes shared with their children when they were young, however, in this fast-paced, slapstick adapted version, the rhymes have been altered and twisted in a humorous way for youth. Jack B. Nimble is a stuntman jumping over flames and Jack gets more than just a broken crown when he tumbles down the hill. Goldilocks and many other well-known characters are helped by Dr. Goose and her Nurseryland Clinic. Children as well as adults will enjoy a wonderful adaptation of this classic piece.

Produced by: New Mexico Young Actors, Inc.

Price: $6 per person

Trale Horner and the Murder at the Abilene Saloon
by Larry Blamire

Description: It's a big to-do at the old Abilene Saloon as world famous entertainer Libby Crabstree is coming to town. But tension runs high as everyone seems to have it in for really really bad guy Estes Charlemagne. That includes lusty saloon owner Miss Molly, addle-brained western sidekick Happy Robitussel, clumsy cowgirl Accidental Jane, and that likeable, young, science-oriented gunfighter the Doppler Kid. When murder raises its ugly tinhorn head, it's up to famous western hero legend Trale Horner--who comes with his own theme song--to save the day, or at least part of the celebratory dinner. Can you help Trale figure out who's a'doin' what ta who, and why? And how?

Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer
Directed by Terry Davis



Location: Musical Theatre Southwest Center for Theatre

Dates: July 10 through August 2
Fridays and Saturdays, 8:00 pm
Sundays, 4:00 pm

Genre: Musical

Description: If you thought you knew the story of “The Princess and The Pea,” you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
