Good People, which debuted on Broadway to great critical acclaim in 2011, reunites two people from the same rough neighborhood in Boston whose lives have diverged dramatically since they last saw one another. Mike found the good life, while Margaret has all the troubles. When they compare notes at Mike's canceled birthday party, one has to wonder: What is the connection between being a good person and having the good life? Is it just luck of the draw? From the opening scene in a junked-out alley behind a dollar store, director Janet Davidson brings David Lindsay-Abaire's all-too-relatable drama to life. Good People runs through Nov. 24; showtimes Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. $18 general admission, students $12. Catch a talkback after the show on Sunday, Nov. 10. For tickets and info, go to or call 247-8600. The Vortex Theatre is across from the UNM main campus, 2004 1/2 Central SE. (Holly Von Winckel)
