The Last Five Years
Written and composed by Jason Robert Brown
Directed by Robb Anthony Sisneros
Music direction by Aaron Howe
Stage managed by Laura Nuzum
Starring Sean Schwebke and Kristen Bowers



Location: Musical Theatre Southwest Center for Theatre

Dates: February 13–22
Fridays and Saturdays, 8:00 pm
Sundays, 4:00 pm

Genre: Musical (mature content)

Description: The modern musical ingeniously chronicles the five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress. An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two young New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The story is told almost entirely through song and the show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy telling her story backwards while Jamie tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk winner The Last Five Years has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of Time Magazine's 10 best shows of 2001. A testament to the show's longevity and spurred by the show's regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. A film adaptation is being released in 2014 starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8:00 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Drama

Description: In a Chicago junk shop three small time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection, the showpiece of which is a valuable "Buffalo nickel". These high-minded grifters fancy themselves businessmen pursuing legitimate free enterprise. But the reality of the three--Donny, the oafish junk shop owner; Bobby, a young junkie Donny has taken under his wing; and "Teach", a violently paranoid braggart--is that they are merely pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams. In 1976 the play won an Obie Award for best new play. The play won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best play of the 1977 season, and was also nominated for two Tony Awards!

Souvenir
by Stephen Temperley
Directed by James Cady
Starring Lorri Oliver as Florence Foster Jenkins
and Phil Shortell as Cosmé McMoon



Location: The Adobe Theater

Dates: February 20 through March 15
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus Thursday March 5, 7:30 pm (pay what you will)

Genre: Comedy/Drama

Description: The Adobe Theater is presenting Stephen Temperly’s 2005 Broadway play Souvenir. (Definition: French, literally, act of remembering, from Middle French, from (se) souvenir to remember, from Latin subvenire to come up, come to mind, in English usually thought of as a memento, keepsake or token of remembrance.) In this case the “act of remembering” is being done by an aging nightclub pianist and what he is remembering is a woman most people have never heard of, but will undoubtedly hear of soon since Meryl Streep has signed on to play her in a major film that will start production soon after The Adobe Theater’s production closes.

Souvenir carries the subtitle A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins. Lorri Layle Oliver will portray Ms. Jenkins and Philip J. Shortell will play the aging nightclub pianist--the improbably though actually named Cosmé McMoon. Before Lorri had heard of Souvenir she first learned about the real life Florence Foster Jenkins (FFJ) in the late 1980s when Lorri was studying opera in Santa Fe. She was working on some coloratura arias with her accompanist, Ron Grinage. During a break, he played a recording of FFJ singing the “Queen of the Night” from Mozart’s The Magic Flute. They laughed at it, but Lorri was horrified at the same time that someone that bad would actually record themselves. This is not a play about a bad singer. It’s a play about a woman who did not sing well but was famous in NY Society for her posh recitals and charity work. She was well known enough that renowned and wonderful musicians like Cole Porter and Noel Coward came to her concerts.

When Lorri and Phil started acting together in 2012 (first as Linda and Willie Loman in Death of a Salesman and then in 2013 as Kate and Joe Keller in All My Sons, both directed by James Cady), these two productions were very well received. Since then they have been looking for another play. James Cady will again direct.

Souvenir is a warm, humorous and loving fictional interpretation of what the relationship between Cosmé McMoon and FFJ may have been. As best we can know FFJ and Cosmé met in 1932 and they stayed together (as singer and accompanist) until her death shortly after a sold out concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944. Souvenir opens with Cosmé at the keyboard 20 years to the day after her death, looking back to their meeting in 1932 and carrying forward.

It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West, and he seeks Anna’s assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story.

And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before--keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.

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 (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.

Produced by: The Vortex Theatre

Once Upon A Mattress
Music by Mary Rodgers
Lyrics by Marshall Barer
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.
