The Adobe Theater
4/4-4/27/2014
Dancing At Lughnasa is a play about the courage of 5 sisters in 1936 Ballybeg, Ireland as told through the memory of Michael. Faced with no meaningful work, no likelihood of a husband, and only themselves to depend upon, they still manage to find joy and humor in their lives. 1936 Ireland was a time of extreme poverty, due to the 1929 economic crash. An entire generation of young men had been lost in WW1 and very few women would find husbands. The youngest sister has had a son out of wedlock and he is now age 7. Lughnasa is the Irish Harvest Festival which always happens in late August.

Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 4/20/2014 A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING
Eastern New Mexico University
4/24-4/27/2014
Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers & Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. Over three decades after the duo's final collaboration, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, took the Great White Way by storm, it was in fact this new R&H musical that opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical. Here at R&H, our founding fathers probably never imagined 'Shall We Dance?' as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer, nor did they suspect that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, 'How do you solve a problem like Maria?' But that's precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this new revue, with innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,' a swingin' 'Honeybun' worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy 'Kansas City' which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Music Arrangements by Fred Wells; Conceived By Walter Bobbie
