Culture Shock


The Southwest’s rich history makes the region a perfect location for supernatural folklore. And Halloween is a perfect time to hear its tales. Nasario Garcia will be reading from Brujerias: Stories of Witchcraft and the Supernatural in the American Southwest and Beyond in English and Spanish at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW, 544-8139) on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m.

Big Booty

Doug from The Box Performance Space (1025 Lomas NW, 404-1578) gave me a ring last week to make sure I'd received a calendar listing, and we got to chatting about improv classes and the like. Turns out The Box hosts an improv night every Sunday from 7 to 9 p.m. called Big Booty Improv Jam. It's free and everyone's invited to participate. I was like, Whaaaat? How've I been missing that? All you drama types get over there.

Lieutenant of Inishmore

The Fusion Theatre Company has been putting out a number of fantastic performances lately (see my review of Doubt, Aug. 30-Sept. 5) and this weekend marks the opening of its next theatrical endeavor, The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Written by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, Lieutenant is a dark farce about the hypocrisy of violence. It follows the tale of Irish National Liberation Army enforcer Mad Padraic and his search for the killer of his favorite cat. The Lieutenant of Inishmore won the 2003 Olivier Award for best new comedy, the Obie for best play in 2006 and was nominated for five Tonys. See it at The Cell (700 First Street NW), opening on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. and running Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. until Nov. 18. Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 for students and seniors, $10 for student rush and $18 for actor rush on Thursday night performances. Call 766-9412 for tickets or visit
