Shakespeare on the Plaza in Broadway SHAKESPEARE ON THE PLAZA
The Vortex Theatre
The Vortex Theatre and the City of Albuquerque (Cultural Services Division) are partnering to produce Shakespeare outdoors in the summer of 2014. Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream will be performed by a single company of actors over a four week period, June 20-July 13. The productions will be in Albuquerque's Civic Plaza, where the large covered stage will be remade into an intimate space, a perfect place to experience Shakespeare's incomparable love poetry on a summer night. The directors are Billy Trabaudo (Romeo and Juliet), a young director with an ear for the music of young love, and Salome Martinez Lutz (A Midsummer Night's Dream), well-known for producing modern and classic Hispanic drama as well as zarzuela. They promise to bring fresh visions to these popular classics. The new project will be "repertory theatre" in several senses. The actors will work in a repertory company, everyone appearing in both plays. And the repertory will "revolve" with Romeo opening first, followed by Dream, and on into alternating nights. But it is also intended to be an Albuquerque Shakespeare festival, one with popular prices, a diverse acting company, and localized, relevant productions that bring Shakespeare right into "the Plaza" of Albuquerque and New Mexico. Look for Shakespeare as you've rarely seen him in New Mexico!

Footloose in Broadway FOOTLOOSE
Sandstone Productions
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.Music by Tom Snow; Lyrics by Dean Pitchford; Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie; Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford; Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman
