Ken Ludwig's Leading Ladies is now playing at Adobe Theatre. Running from January 17th - February 9th, Leading Ladies is considered to be a, 'rare mix of screwball comedy and farce with a tip of the hat to the Billy Wilder classic Some Like it Hot,' by director Lewis Hauser. In addition, 'the characters are real. The situations are real. And that makes for great comedy, as only author Ken Ludwig can imagine it.' Without a doubt, Leading Ladies is great comedy, and makes for an entertaining afternoon.

BWW Review: AN ADOBE CHRISTMAS CAROL at Adobe Theatre
December 3, 2019

Adobe theatre's An Adobe Christmas Carol brings the spirit of the holidays to Albuquerque. With a small cast of only 13 playing multiple roles, the heartfelt production kicked off the season starting on November 22nd. The play, which is adapted and directed by Pete Parkin, takes the classic tale of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol and modernizes it many ways, giving the production even more depth. In the play, a group of homeless people break into an abandoned theater on Christmas Eve in order to find shelter from the cold. While they are getting settled in the theatre and looking for food or blankets and costumes for warmth, they come across a copy of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Rather than using the book as kindling for a fire, the group decide to perform the classic tale and act it out in order to distract themselves from the cold, using what props and costumes they find in the abandoned theatre.

BWW Review: UNDER MILK WOOD at West End Productions
October 22, 2019

West End Production's Under Milk Wood is now playing at North 4th Theatre in Albuquerque. Under Milk Wood is a play based on a radio drama by playwright and poet Dylan Thomas. Commissioned by the BBC in 1950, it was completed shortly before his death in New York City in 1953. A film version, directed by Andrew Sinclair, was released in 1972, and another adaptation of the play, directed by Pip Broughton, was staged for television on the 60th anniversary of the radio play in 2014. The play is thought of as an expression of love for the cast of characters of the fictional costal fishing town of Llareggub in Wales - the name of the town is said to reveal its meaning only when read backwards.

The 50th anniversary tour of Jesus Christ Superstar updates the much-loved Andrew Lloyd Webber musical and modernizes it in a way that makes it more accessible and enjoyable to today's audiences. The musical, which debuted on Broadway in 1971, has reached a world-wide audience since then, with performances in Australia, Europe, and the West End. There have been several filmed versions of the production as well, including the 1973 movie starring Ted Neeley, as well as a more modern retelling of the rock opera in 2000 starring Glenn Carter. Finally, on Easter Sunday, NBC aired a live version of the production starring John Legend as Jesus. The longevity of the musical, as well as the various adaptations that have been made, show just how beloved the show has been for decades.

The play has been performed on Broadway several times and had two movies based off of it, including a contemporary remake starring Meg Ryan, Eva Mendez, and Jada Pinkett Smith. According to the director, James Cady, The Women is, 'a play about men, told by women.' The play has a cast entirely made up of women and is about, 'love and what happens when you take it for granted and then lose it.'

According to the director and members of the cast of Adobe Theatre's production of Shakespeare in Hollywood, it has been a labor of love bringing the show to the stage; a wonderful experience where the cast had a great time getting to know one another and become friends, as well as a chance for the audience to leave the theatre with a more interest in Shakespeare and the history surrounding the 1935 movie of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
