Glam Is Good

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Musical Theater Southwest continues their run of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a seminal rock opera—or rock musical, if you prefer—at the MTS Center for Theatre on Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7:30pm and on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 2pm. The award-winning show by Stephen Trask and John Cameron Mitchell continues through next weekend with performances scheduled for the first and second weekends of November, as well. The story concerns the life of East German male-to-female transgender bandleader Hedwig Schmidt as they confront and transcend life, love and an addiction to glam rock that drives Hedwig's soulful searching. Jonathan Gallegos stars in the title role, and Kir Kepness portrays Yitzhak. The Angry Inch band is comprised of local musicans Laurie Lopez (keyboard), Chris Deminsky (guitar), Matt Jaeger (bass) and Hovey Corbin (drums). Tickets for this wickedly funny and wildly culturally relevant theatre outing cost between $20 and $25, and all ages are welcome.

Reptilian Lounge

Late in the night on Saturday, Oct. 26, reptile people take to the stage in dangerous and unruly performances of debauchery to shock and entertain in Albuquerque’s longest-running showcase of nocturnal cabaret and variety known as The Reptilian Lounge. Onstage at Tricklock Performance Laboratory, see fire-breathers, poets, dancers, jokesters, actors and other such people (depending on who actually turns up) with brief but extraordinary acts the likes of which are rarely seen together. The madness begins at 10pm and admission is $9 and cash is preferred. For more information, see tricklock.com.
