A JEWEL IN THE MANUSCRIPT
Adobe Theater
10/19-11/11/2012
Based on an historical incident, the play finds the great Russian writer, Fyodor Dostoevsky, in a mess. In addition to promising his publisher a new manuscript, he has also agreed to a serious penalty: if Dostoevsky can't provide the manuscript by a certain date, the rights to all of his works will revert to the publisher, rendering Dostoevsky penniless. So with the deadline looming, his friends decide to hire him a secretary to help him organize his messy writing habits. All are appalled when, expecting a man, the agency sends over Anna Snitkina, who was first in her class with the new fangled skill of stenography. Although an inauspicious beginning, Anna gradually wins over Dostoevsky, helping him not only with his manuscript, but emotionally and romantically as well.

Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 10/14/2012 JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Musical Theatre Southwest
10/18-11/11/2012
It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent '60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd WebberFor more information on Musical Theatre Southwest, click hereFor more information on Jesus Christ Superstar, click here
