Freud vs. C.S. Lewis
Fusion Theatre Company tackles weighty philosophical questions
Fusion Theatre Company tackles a theoretical debate between atheist Freud and Christian C.S. Lewis.
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.

If you like laughs and day trip adventures, head north to Teatro Paraguas Studio for Blackout Theatre’s new show <I>Let’s Blackout in Santa Fe (and call it sketch comedy)</I>. The ensemble will whip out audience favorites from the past couple of years, plus new material and outrageous video sketches. Musical guests Ericka Olvera and Lauren Poole join the giggle-fest. The performances are Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 9:30 p.m., so you have time to get a few Margaritas beforehand—always makes it easier to blackout.
