Titanic

Story and Book by Peter Stone
Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston
Directed by Brian Clifton

Location: Musical Theatre Southwest Center for Theatre

Dates: July 11 through August 3
Fridays and Saturdays, 8:00 pm
Sundays, 4:00 pm

Genre: Musical

Description: The sinking of the RMS Titanic in the early hours of April 15, 1912, remains the quintessential disaster of this century. A total of 1,517 souls-men, women and children-lost their lives (only 711 survived). The fact that the finest, largest, strongest ship in the world--called, in fact, the "unsinkable" ship--should have been lost during its maiden voyage is so incredible that, had it not actually happened, no author would have dared to contrive it. But the catastrophe had social ramifications that went far beyond that night's events.

For the first time since the beginning of the industrial revolution early in the 19th Century, bigger, faster and stronger did not prove automatically to be better. Suddenly the very essence of "progress" had to be questioned; might the advancement of technology not always be progress? Nor was this the only question arising from the disaster. The accommodations of the ship, divided into 1st, 2nd and 3rd Classes, mirrored almost exactly the class structure (upper, middle and lower) of the English-speaking world. But when the wide discrepancy between the number of survivors from each of the ship's classes was revealed--all but two of the women in 1st Class were saved while 155 women and children from 2nd and 3rd (mostly 3rd) Class drowned--there was a new, long-overdue scrutiny of the prevailing social system and its values. It is not an exaggeration to state that the 19th Century, with its social stricture, its extravagant codes of honor and sacrifice, and its unswerving belief that God favored the rich, ended that night.

The musical play Titanic examines the causes, the conditions and the characters involved in this ever-fascinating drama. This is the factual story of that ship--of her officers, crew and passengers, to be sure--but she will not, as has happened so many times before, serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character of our Titanic is the RMS Titanic herself.

Switch
Written and directed by Dennis Cole

Location: Desert Rose Playhouse

Dates: July 24 through August 3
Thursdays and Fridays, 7:30 pm
Saturday July 26, 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm
Saturday August 2, 2:00 pm only
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Spiritual drama

Description: Switch addresses the moral problems of our time with real solutions. It is a new play written and directed by Dennis Cole, and it plays out the contemporary social issues with passion, personal stories, music, and humor. This play was written with you in mind. Switch will appeal to a blend of churchgoers, non-church goers, believers and non-believers. On the one hand it is simple and imaginative, a la It’s A Wonderful Life. On the other hand Switch addresses some polarizing moral issues that involve contemporary sexual mores. It’s a must see for all kinds of people. We do not just address problems but the characters in our play find solutions to these same issues. Hollywood does not offer this hope, but Holy-Wood does. Switch is pure Holy-Wood, with compassion to rich and poor, the saint and the sinner.

The Adobe Reads in August (staged readings)


Location: The Adobe Theater

Dates: August 1-24
Fridays and Saturdays, 8:00 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Staged readings

Description: Celebrities star at the Adobe in August!

A potpourri of staged readings, to benefit much needed upgrades to The Adobe, will offer patrons the chance to see two great plays this August as presented by outstanding actors and New Mexico celebrities.

A.R. Gurney’s romantic comedy/drama, Love Letters will be performed throughout August and will be accompanied by two readings of Alfred Uhry’s wonderful Driving Miss Daisy near month’s end.

Love Letters tells the story of a star-crossed romance from childhood to seniority through the now nearly lost art of written correspondence that went through the U.S. mail between two friends who eventually became lovers. Love Letters will feature a number of New Mexico celebrities among the ten different couples who will take on the roles, with (in alphabetic order) former NM Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish, Long time Albuquerque Journal drama critic Barry Gaines, Judge Bill Lang, BIG 98.5 morning host Chaz Malibu, and KKOB Weekend host Terrie Q Sayre, along with their actual spouses (for all but Terrie Q, where it is her regular on-air sidekick Dan Goss). They will be joined by an equal number of Albuquerque Theatre standouts (also listed alphabetically: Gene Corbin, Brian Hansen, Jane Hoffman, Heather Lovick-Tolley, Don Moran, Jean Moran, Ninette S. Mordaunt, Lorri Oliver, Ray Orley, Tim Ragsdale, Phil Shortell, Jeff Tolley, and Linda Williams) in the roles of Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. For a complete list of pairings of readers see our website.

On August’s fourth weekend, Love Letters will be replaced by Driving Miss Daisy for two performances only, on Friday August 22 and Sunday August 24. This classic was last done at the Old Adobe in Corrales almost 20 years ago to the day, with the late Penny Powell and Don Perkins in the unforgettable roles of Daisy and Hoke. This time it will be a staged reading with NM favorites Jane Hoffman in the title role, Gene Corbin as her philosophical chauffer Hoke and Tim Ragsdale as Daisy’s son, Boolie.

Hamlet
by William Shakespeare
Directed by James Cady



Location: MTS Center for Theatre

Dates: August 14-24
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7.30 pm
Saturdays and Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Drama

Description: “Denmark’s a prison.” Those words spoken by Hamlet in William Shakespeare’s play, written more than 400 years ago, inspired veteran director James Cady to set his production of Hamlet in a state penitentiary. “I don’t know if I’m the first director to stage the play this way, but actual prisoners have been producing the play as part of their rehabilitation for several years. The play seems to speak, on a deeply emotional and redemptive level, to inmates whose crimes parallel the characters in Hamlet, primarily murder and revenge.”

Cady has assembled an all-male cast of Albuquerque’s finest actors to play out his vision: Ed Chavez, Brennan Foster, Peter Shea Kierst, Micah Linford, Marc Lynch, Tim MacAlpine, Ray Orley, Ned Record, Philip J. Shortell, Tyler Alan Strand, Matthew Van Wettering, and Michael Weppler.

“The challenge for the actor,” Cady states, “is to portray the characters in Shakespeare’s play (using Shakespeare’s language), but to do so through the prison characters they have created.”

With the play cut to a mere ninety minutes and performed without intermission, Cady believes that once the audience signs on for the ride, even though they think they know how the story ends, they will constantly be asking themselves “What happens next?” And, according to Cady, “that is the essence of great theatre.”

Description: Acclaimed Dallas actress Carolyn Wickwire stars in this one-woman play about the art, loves, and life of 20th Century iconic artist Georgia O’Keeffe.

From O’Keeffe!: "How, where, when I was born is unimportant and dull, dull, dull. It is the choices I made and how I made them that should be of interest."--Georgia O'Keeffe

Two forces shaped Georgia O’Keeffe as an artist and a woman: her passionate quest to find and express her artistic voice, and her tumultuous love affair and 31-year marriage to the revolutionary photographer and champion of the Modern Art Movement, Alfred Stieglitz. In O’Keeffe!, Georgia--witty, irreverent and decades ahead of her time--shares revealing scenes from her challenging life as she struggles to maintain her independence in the early decades of the 20th Century.

Fantasmaville
by Raul Garza

Location: NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium

Dates: October 2 - 12
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Comedy/Drama

Description: Fantasmaville humorously examines the love/hate relationship Latino-Americans have with the ghosts of past people and places. When a world-weary Latina, Celeste, and her Anglo husband, Martin, desire to experience a sense of community, they return home to the urban neighborhood where they both grew up. They resist the surge of gentrification. Colorful local characters, including an advice-spinning “Mexican Spirit Guide” who takes on the form of a human-sized raccoon, complicate the couple's return. While facing the threat of a yuppie-centric Dog Park encroaching on her neighborhood, Celeste discovers the secret of her heritage, her purpose, and her longing for a sense of home.

“Fantasmaville is a hilarious play about the cost of urban blight on the Latino soul,” --playwright Elaine Romero.

Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin’” and “We Go Together,” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with the iconic 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have made Grease one of the world’s most popular musicals!

The Boxcar
By Silvia González S.

Location: NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium

Dates: October 16-26
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Drama

Description: In 1987, a group of men set out in search of a better life for themselves and their families, entering the United States as undocumented immigrants, looking to make a dollar or two. Each man had his dream, and all were willing to endure whatever hardships might befall them in the few hours to come. Over the years, many have survived this perilous method of entering the U.S., placing their lives in the hands of others. Tragically, many have not. NHCC and Teatro Nuevo México are presenting Silvia Gonzalez S.’s play The Boxcar that recreates the lives of these men in a story of extraordinary bravery, passion, love of family, and hope,

The Boxcar is by the award-winning Latina playwright Silvia Gonzalez S. It was originally presented in Spanish as El Vagón by the famed New York theatre company Repertorio Español. Gonzalez feels that in the current political climate it is important to honor those who have experienced similar disasters, abandoned in boxcars and truck trailers by the human smugglers called coyotes. “I knew this was going to happen again and again. I felt I had to do something. Somehow inspiration hit me to write some scenes for this play. The characters just spoke to me. It was the first play I had ever written focusing on immigration issues.”

Beatriz promptly vents her pent-up frustration at the shortcomings of her men, past and present, grabs Olivia in the middle of the night and heads west in a desperate fury. Their road trip destination is two thousand miles across the country. The mother's skin is brown, the teenage daughter's white. A tenuous bonding begins as the reunited pair runs fast and furious from the secrets in their lives, hunting valuable antiques, chasing Arctic explorers, and getting lost in Wyoming's wilderness. So what if reality's nipping at their heels?

"Charming, spunky, and ultimately heart-rending . . . The car trip from Paoli, PA to Yellowstone Park is transforming and restorative." --The New York Times

"Irresistible family drama . . . The play's greatest triumph is Beatriz . . . Frantic, foolish and unapologetically direct, Beatriz is one the most original and refreshing matriarchs to come to any stage in a long, lon time" --The Denver Post

Genre: Musical Comedy

Description: Shrek the Musical, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre—not a handsome prince—shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.

Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, Shrek the Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!

"A triumph of comic imagination with a heart as big and warm as Santa's. It is the most ingeniously wacky, transcendently tasteless Broadway musical since The Producers." --USA Today

The King and I
Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
based on Anna and the King by Margaret Landon

Location: Albuquerque Little Theatre

Dates: February 27 through March 22
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus Thursday March 12, 7:30 pm

Genre: Musical

Description: East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. 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.

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!

Location: Albuquerque Little Theatre

Dates: May 22 through June 14
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Musical

Description: Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail as well as the classic BBC TV series, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful showgirls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including “Best Musical,” and received 14 Tony Award nominations.
