Freud’s Last Session in Albuquerque tonight and tomorrow

What would happen if Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis sat down to debate? A play put on by the Fusion Theatre Company asks just that. It will be in Albuquerque tonight and tomorrow night at 8 p.m. at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE). Then, it moves onto The Lensic Theater in Santa Fe (211 West San Francisco). Alibi theater critic Leigh Hile’s got the scoop.

Major-Minor Doom

Bit characters from Hamlet wander to their demise at Theatre X

This is no spoiler: “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.” An ambassador from England announces this at the end of Hamlet and this masterpiece from Tom Stoppard. Anyone who is familiar with Hamlet or has even read the title of Stoppard's classic absurdist drama has a pretty good idea of where they play's action is headed. Even the protagonists, at various turns in the story, know they're going to die, though they either forget or willfully ignore the information upon receiving it every time.

An Empty November

Vortex’s solid cast props up madcap plotline

The premise may sound familiar as our real presidential election approaches, but this piece written by David Mamet is so absurd and pointless that it fails to connect to anything bearing resemblance to reality.
