More events at Black Box Theater

A delightful musical composed of two 1-act place linked by the common theme of love.

It runs at the Black Box Theatre, 430 N Downtown Mall  in Las Cruces from January 24 - February 16, 2014. "The Little Comedy", is based on a  short story by Arthur Schnitzler. Set in late 19th century  Vienna, it focuses on Josephine and Alfred, who have both become         extremely "bored" with their very comfortable lifestyles and  have decided to take on new personas. Alfred takes on the role of a struggling poet and Josefine, a working class woman. The  plot centers around their budding relationship as they meet during a weekend in the country. Whether or not they survive the  inedible food, bad wine and swarming insects remains to be seen. Act II, "Summer Share", is based on the  Jules Renard's 1898 play "Le pain de menage." This modern-day  musical, set in the Hamptons, is about two married couples in  their thirties who are spending the summer in a rented cottage.  Sam, who is married to Barb, and Monica, who is married to  Lenny, find themselves gradually progressing from harmless   flirtation to the serious possibility of an illicit affair. This delightful production, directed by Karen Caroe, opens at the Black Box Theatre January 24, 2014 and runs through February 16, 2014. Performances are Fridays and  Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sunday Matinees on February 2, 9 and 16  at 2:30 p.m. and a Thursday performance on February 6 at 7:00  p.m.  Tickets are $12.00 Regular Admission, $10.00 Students and  Seniors over 65 and all seats on Thursdays are $8.00. Reservations (575) 523-1223
