Teatro Paraguas to Present WATER BY THE SPOONFUL, 3/6-16
Teatro Paraguas presents Water By The Spoonful, the 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Quiara Alegria Hudes from March 6-16, Thursdays- Saturdays at 7:30 pm Sundays at 2:00 pm at Teatro Paraguas Studio, 3205 Calle Marie. Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 seniors and students; Thursdays pay-what-you-wish. For reservations/info. 424-1601: teatroparaguas.org.
Hudes skillfully intertwines the story of a returning Iraq War veteran struggling to find meaning in his life with that of a quartet of recovering addicts finding strength and support in a chat room. Using the themes of dissonance and redemption, the play searches for connection across generations, continents and cyberspace. Water by the Spoonful probes the bonds of family and community with humor and lyricism.
Directed by Fran Martone, the Teatro Paraguas production incorporates some of Santa Fe's most impressive actors: Robert Mesa, Nicole Phelps, Lisa Foster, Johnathan Harrel, Rick Vargas, Roxanne Tapia and Argos MacCallum.
Water by the Spoonful will be presented on March 6-9 and March 13-16. Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 7:30pm. Sunday matinees are at 2pm. Teatro Paraguas is located at 3205 Calle Marie. Call 505 424 1601 for reservations or additional information.
