The Albuquerque Little Theatre begins its Studio Series on Saturday, Nov. 10, with staged readings of work by local playwrights Walter L. Newton, Edith Weiss, Robert F. Benjamin, Elaine Jarvik and Scott Bison. The Studio Series is a program offered by ALT to local writers for the development of new dramatic scripts through workshops, readings and performances. The staged reading will start at 7 p.m. and last around two hours including an intermission (with complimentary coffee and cookies) and a talk back with the actors and directors. As any writer knows, audience feedback is essential to creating a successful product, so don't be afraid to chime in with the good and the bad. The event is free for ALT members and ticket holders to previous shows or $5 at the door. Call 242-4750 for more info.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Cell Theatre
By Steven Robert Allen
On a public television biography that aired last week, Charles Schulz admitted to milking a lot of humor from straight-up violence. From a 21st century perspective, it might be odd to think of “Peanuts” as violent, but it was, of course. Schulz hurt his characters. We laughed. A simple, infallible equation that worked almost every time.

Jim Shepard’s Like You’d Understand, Anyway
Review by John Freeman
Like You'd Understand, Anyway
Jim Shepard’s work has always felt a bit like a brief and terrifying roller coaster that spits you out the other end thrilled and breathless, wondering why you wanted to be shot into such a dark cave of tracks in the first place. Project X, his anxious 2004 novel, told the story of a Columbine-like school shooting. His short stories have wormed their way aboard the Hindenburg, beneath Communist revolutions and into the mind of John Ashcroft, even.
