The lovely Vanessa will be there to give our wheel a proper turn, and to keep our contestants buzzing.

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!

In the Next Room (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: Winner of the 2003 Olivier Award for Best Play!

In 1873, at the age of 20, Vincent Van Gogh rented a room in a suburb of London while he was being groomed for a career as an art dealer in his family's business. This heralded play traces the transforming effects of love, sex and youthful adventure on Van Gogh's still unformed talent, portraying him as he might have been and supposing a poignant affair with his landlady that might have happened.

Members of the collective, which grew out of many conversations, laughter, and tears, began writing their own stories and created a full production in 2014.

Genre: Staged Musical Concert

Description: The musical Nine makes it long awaited debut in Albuquerque. Two of the Duke City’s most beloved theatre companies, The Growing Stage and Musical Theatre Southwest, have joined forces to present the Southwest Premiere of the 1982 Tony-Award winning show. Nine will be presented in concert style, based on the very popular Encores series of classic musicals in concert at City Center in New York. That series has produced hit revivals of Gypsy, Wonderful Town, and of course, Chicago.

This production of Nine, which features 20 of Albuquerque’s finest female musical theatre performers, and stars Michael Matthew Finnegan as Guido Contini, is being presented as a benefit for The Matthew Naegeli Scholarship Fund at The Growing Stage, and MTStudents. MTStudents is the theatre education wing of Musical Theatre Southwest. The Growing Stage is about to begin its twelfth summer season of classes and performances for children. MTStudents focuses on providing students with a diverse exposure to the Performing Arts through authentic idea development, technique, creativity and performance.

The Matthew Naegeli Scholarship Fund was created in late 2014 to honor the late Albuquerque born actor/director/singer/musical director/set designer.

Nine is based on the film 8 1/2, the loosely-autobiographical film by Federico Fellini. There was a highly successful revival on Broadway, starring Antonio Banderas, in 2003. The film version, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, was released in 2009.

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.

Aye, No!
by Liz Coronado Castillo
Directed by Valli Marie Rivera



Location: NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium

Dates: July 30 through August 16
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm

Genre: Farce

Description: Camino Real Productions and NHCC team up with Albuquerque’s favorite drag theatre company, The Dolls, to bring you Aye, No!, a hilarious farce. The action takes place in a small Texas border town when young Alicia comes home from college with a “friend” for her family to meet. The trouble begins when her loving grandma and well-intentioned aunts assume that Alicia is bringing home a boyfriend or fiancé rather than her girlfriend. Alicia, wanting her family’s acceptance and fearing her family’s efforts to get a curandera to cure her of “the gay,” turns to her three fairy (drag-queen) godmothers for assistance. Hilarity ensues.

Produced by: Camino Real Productions, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and The Dolls

Price: $18 general admission
$15 for students, seniors, NHCC, ATG, and TLC members

Location: The Adobe Theater

Dates: August 7-30
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus Thursday August 20th, 7:30 pm (pay what you will)

Genre: Drama

Description: The play takes place on Labor Day weekend in the joint backyards of two middle-aged widows. The one house belongs to Flo Owens, who lives there with her two maturing daughters, Madge and Millie, and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality seriously upsets the entire group. Hal is a most interesting character, a child of parents who ignored him, self-conscious of his failings and his position behind the eight ball. Flo is sensitively wary of temptations for her daughters. Madge, bored with being only a beauty, sacrifices her chances for a wealthy marriage for the excitement Hal promises. Her sister, Millie, finds her balance for the first time through the stranger's brief attention, and the spinster is stirred to make an issue out of the dangling courtship that has brightened her life in a dreary, minor way.

A Crack In The Wall
by Peter Fisk
Directed by Marty Epstein



Location: The Adobe Theater

Dates: September 18 through October 11
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus Thursday October 1, 7:30 pm (pay what you will)

Genre: Drama

Description: A drama about two families, one Jewish and one Catholic, several weeks prior to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of April 1943 in German-occupied Poland. The play's focal point is the unusual friendship between the son of one of the leaders of the impending Jewish revolt and the son of an anti-Semitic Catholic father; the latter's son is funneling guns to the Jews. The play represents the clash between blinding idealism and necessarily vigilant realism. But on the more human plane, the two characters clearly recognize the twirling horrors of their environment, while refusing to become victims of its terror.

Carnelle, who is an orphan, was taken in by her Aunt Ronelle and raised with her two cousins, Elain and Delmount. Aunt Ronelle died of cancer after receiving a pituitary gland transplant from a monkey, causing her entire body to grow long black hairs. Elain won the Miss Firecracker pageant at the young age of 17, compared to Carnelle who pushes the pageant age limit of 24. Elain married well, using her beauty to win a husband after junior college. Delmount was admitted to a mental institution and has been involved in quite a few scandals with exotic beauties who catch his eye. Carnelle recently recovered from syphilis, though not before giving it to the sickly Mac Sam. Carnelle has been attempting to redefine herself by volunteering for the cancer society, attending church, and taking an orphan to dinner every week. She now plans to win the Miss Firecracker contest to prove to everyone in Brookhaven that she is a valuable and beautiful young woman.
