Susan and God

Into the Vortex

Burque's estimable Vortex Theatre was, for many years, located in the heart of UNM's student ghetto and featured some awesome work, particularly classics directed by or acted in by legendary local thespians like John Hardman. Now more than 20 years after such halcyon days, they've moved up to the heights to the old Langell's Art Supply building on Carlisle. And guess what? They still feature awesome, challenging, compelling work. Beginning Friday, Jan. 10 and running through Sunday, Feb. 2—with Friday and Saturday showtimes at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm—the curtain rises on Susan and God by Rachel Crothers. It's a dramatic comedy about life and religion in America, directed by Lauren Dusek Albonico and featuring noted local actors Bridget S. Dunn, Nick Johnson and Tait Peterson. This sometimes-overlooked 1930s Modernist masterpiece is the opening offering of a season titled “Drama Queens—400 Years of Women Playwrights.” Tickets for performances range in price for $17 to $24.
