UNM linguistics professor and actor Alan Hudson was sitting at El Pinto. It was March 2010, and he'd just seen a performance of The Diary of Anne Frank at The Filling Station. He was surrounded by people involved in the production.

"That kind of lit a fuse of some sort in my brain," says Hudson, who was born and raised in Dublin.
