Carl Sagan famously said, “If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” Ponder that for a minute. Keep pondering—there's a lot to unpack in that one sentence. Now toss in demigods, alter-egos and the meaning of life. Okay, now write a whole play about the questions and ideas that arise from that exciting mixture of things. Oh, wait! Someone already did that so you don't have to. Wade through your physical perception of the universe toward the Adobe Rose Theatre in Santa Fe Thursdays-Sundays to see Theater Grottesco's performance of PIE. Regular tickets range from $12-$25, but Thursday performances are pay-what-you-wish and April 14 is a special $100 per person gala. Regular showings are at 7pm Thursday-Saturday and 2pm on Sunday.

Eva Perón was a badass and First Lady of Argentina from 1946-1952 who championed labor rights, women's suffrage and the working class. And then Madonna played her in the movie version. Eva, affectionately known as Evita, is still adored by the people of Argentina. Growing up in the poor working class provided Perón with first-hand experience of the hardships the lower class faced. She was able to take her personal history and use it to help campaign for them later in her career. See the rest of her story at Musical Theatre Southwest's production of Evita running April 7-30, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $20-$22.

You won't need an alibi (well, obviously you'll need this Alibi for all the info) to get away from it all at The Vortex Theatre this Friday, April 21. See The Importance of Being Earnest, a scandalous play making fun of Victorian moral values like social codes, courting (i.e. sexual restraint) and elitism. Follow Jack Worthing—a man leading a double life—as he leaves his alternate identity to find love. In this scandalous tale, while being pursued by his ward, Jack proclaims his love for another woman as his alter-ego, Ernest. To marry the woman, Jack must reveal his true identity to his friend—and cousin of his beloved—Algernon Moncrieff. While telling Algernon about his “real” life, Algernon's interest is piqued at the description of Jack's ward. The play follows the men awkwardly navigating romance, truth and friendship. See the play Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm until May 14. (Megan Reneau)Vortex TheatreThe Importance of Being Earnest
