Foreign becomes familiar in Adobe Theater’s Men of Mah Jongg

Richard Atkins has been bugging the Alibi for months to see his show.

Atkins was so persistent in his requests for our attendance that we actually started to get annoyed. But then we submitted. Now we understand why he was so adamant—The Men of Mah Jongg may be one of the best pieces of theater to come out of Albuquerque this year.
Jennifer Caven from Angel Fire is the featured artist at this year’s fair.
