Fighting Fire With ...   Millie

Culture Shock

All Men Are Mortal

Raise your hands if you’re tired of the Twilight fad. OK, those of you who didn’t put your hands up, you are dismissed. The rest of us can take a break from solemn teens and go back to the original high schoolers that want to live forever. The song is creeping in, isn’t it? Four little words, and the theme from Fame gets instantly lodged in the brain. The Albuquerque Little Theatre (224 San Pasquale SW) takes on all the singing and dancing and youthful drama of talented kids seeking prestige at a performing arts high school. Fame opens Friday, July 30, and runs through Sunday, Aug. 8. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m., Sunday performances are at 2 p.m. Get tickets, which are $15, at albuquerquelittletheatre.org or by calling the box office at 242-4750.

Performance Review

Fighting Fire With ... Millie

Two months after tragedy, MTS retakes the stage

As devastating as it was to lose a half-century’s worth of costumes, props and archives in a warehouse inferno, there was never any doubt at Musical Theatre Southwest that, yes, the show would go on.

To Kill a Misconception

Alex Heard goes back in time to re-examine an infamous court case

The Eyes of Willie McGee: A Tragedy of Race, Sex, and Secrets in the Jim Crow South

In his just-released book The Eyes of Willie McGee: A Tragedy of Race, Sex, and Secrets in the Jim Crow South, New Mexico-based journalist and Outside Magazine editorial director, Alex Heard takes a hard look at the court cases thought to have inspired To Kill a Mockingbird. The story is simple: In 1945 a black man named Willie McGee was accused of raping a white woman, Willette Hawkins. While Mockingbird sticks with the original case, in which the accused’s lawyer stands up for him despite race and uncovers a secret affair, Eyes follows McGee’s case all the way to the Supreme Court. Heard’s investigation paints a picture of the segregated South and calls into question the stories of both the defendant and the victim. Hear the rest of the story when Heard speaks at Bookworks this week. The Alibi spoke with Heard by phone last week about the trial, the book and civil rights.
