Welcome Back W21
After its grand re-opening on June 27, Warehouse 21 is back to offering Santa Fe youths a place to rock and get their art on. Starting Thursday, July 24, Warehouse 21 presents its first theatrical performance under the new roof. Through the Mirror, an original play written by Winston Morris Greene, tells the story of Adam Stern, a high school graduate with no ambition who's drafted to fight in the Vietnam War. Adam's close friend Jacob Heart joins the war effort to help keep Adam safe, but when only Adam returns home, everything comes crashing down around him. Through the Mirror—starring youth actors Winston Morris Greene, Adam Frank, Isabella Buckner, Ryan Kochevar, Jeffrey Stanke and Serrana Gay—opens with a pay-what-you-wish performance on Thursday, July 24, at 7 p.m. and continues Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. through Aug. 2. Tickets are $10 adults, $5 teens. For more info and reservations, call (505) 989-4423.
Alisa Valdes Rodriguez, author of the Sex in the City-with-a-Latina-twist novel Dirty Girls on Top will give a talk and book signing at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW) on Tuesday, July 29, at 7 p.m. Valdes Rodriguez was named one of the 25 most influential Hispanics in America by Time magazine, partially as a result of her bestselling Dirty Girls Social Club. Stop by the book signing and say “hi” to this Albuquerque native.
