  • Black Magick

    I once saw David Copperfield make the Empire State Building disappear for a few seconds. It made me ill. I don't know how he did it, but I'm sure it involved a malefic deal with a devil of some sort. It scared the hell out of me. So, you can imagine my misgivings when I heard about The Illusionists: Live From Broadway coming to ABQ. The very idea of coming face to face with the devilish stars of the record-breaking show chills my blood. Where did they get their dark powers from? Who are they serving? How do so many quarters get stuck in my ears? Find out the answers this Thursday, May 4, at Popejoy Hall. Tickets for the all-ages show start at $35, but how much does it cost your soul, huh?

  • Earnestly Yours

    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)

  • Nothing That Is So, Is So

    Get a chance to see Shakespeare as he would have wanted it, in a bar amongst the people. Duke City Repertory is performing Bard Crawl: Twelfth Night in different bars around town, with no director, little rehearsing but full of entertainment and heart. On Sunday, May 7, you can catch them at Bow & Arrow Brewing Co. from 2pm-4pm for free as well as Saturday at Nexus or May 13 at Boxing Bear. A classic comedy of errors, mistaken identity and unrequited love, Shakespeare's play is sure to translate well in a cozy setting. Bring cash to tip the bartenders and the players, and leave the disguises to the actors. (Taylor Grabowsky)
