Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 12/09/2012 A CHRISTMAS CAROL
The Adobe Theater
11/30-12/16/2012
A radio station is broadcasting "A Christmas Carol" live, before a studio audience. The Adobe audience will watch the actors, scripts in hand, create characters (sometimes more than one character), music and sound effects live onstage and see how the director puts everything together. In addition, they will have the opportunity for audience participation in the creation of music and sound effects themselves. This delightful retelling of the beloved holiday classic of a man transformed from greed to loving connection embraces the true holiday spirit and will be suitable and enjoyable for all ages. In the past, the Adobe was renowned for its December radio shows, and we hope fans of the genre will be pleased to see this new radio classic.

Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 12/09/2012 EINSTEIN: A STAGE PORTRAIT
MTS Black Box Theatre
12/7-12/16/2012
The year is 1946, the Bomb has been dropped, the world has forever changed and Albert Einstein has invited the audience over to his home to set the record straight about his life. Join Dr. Einstein for an evening of humor, introspection, science and a little violin. Find out why his theories are being proven correct to this day. You'll walk away with an understanding of the man who solved many of the world's most difficult puzzles with astounding creativity and a delicious sense of humor. In this award-winning, one-man show (Dramalogue, Best Playwright) playwright Willard Simms brings to life a brilliant, dedicated and sometimes controversial theoretical physicist who TIME magazine called their Person of the Century. Einstein was "a much too famous man whose reputation grew so out of proportion". He was a reluctant celebrity who set the science world on its collective ear at the astonishing age of twenty six with his Special Theory of Relativity. His passion was deciphering nature's puzzle and spent his entire life "trying to fit the pieces together". Yet, he didn't begin speaking until the age of three and was considered to be a slow learner by his teachers. He abhorred all forms of authority which made his school years difficult and finding work as an adult even harder. Despite all that, not a day passes when we fail hear some reference to Albert Einstein.

Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 12/09/2012 THE FAROLITOS OF CHRISTMAS
National Hispanic Cultural Center
12/14-12/16/2012
Rudolfo Anaya, widely recognized as the foremost author of New Mexican Hispanic culture and folkways, gives us this heartwarming story of a small rural community preparing for Christmas amid the deprivations of World War Two. The spunky heroine, a young girl named Luz, worries that with her grandfather too sick to chop wood and her father wounded in the war, the family cannot have their traditional Christmas luminarias made of small bonfires. So Luz instead cleverly devises a way to make "farolitos," lighted candles in paper bags weighted with sand. These beautiful little lanterns light the path for the Christmas pilgrims, "Las Posadas," and for Luz's homecoming father. In a luminous and touching finale, the community comes together to celebrate in dance and song the love, hope, and magic of the Christmas season.

LOVE WITH A TWIST
SouthWest Rural Theatre Project
11/29-12/22/2012
Short stories by O. Henry have never been so charmingly and hilariously staged. The Gift of the Magi, The Last Leaf, The Love Philtre of Ikey Schoenstein, and The Marry Month of May are interlinked into a series of overlapping tales. Each is introduced with a mini overture of seasonal music. The finale, with all characters filling you in on what happened to them after their tales ended, is worth the price of admission. The characters are unforgettable, the dialogue is sparkling with wit, and the songs are sensational.
