    Until such time as a “Breaking Bad” musical puts the name Heisenberg on everybody’s lips, let us step into jazz-age Chi-town for the musical Chicago opening this Friday, April 5 at Musical Theatre Southwest. This Broadway smash filled with murderesses, fame, fake pregnancy, gunplay, vaudeville, lawyers, jail, singing and dancing will have you asking, “who says murder’s not an art?” The musical runs April 5 to 28 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Tickets are $20 to $25. For more information and tickets, see mtsabq.org or call 265-9119. (Clarke Conde)

    Che Malambo, an Argentinian modern dance troupe with heavy percussive overtones and flamenco boots on the feet of beefy, Chippendale-styled dancers inhabiting this newfangled all-male dance company, just hit the road on a 60-day tour of the United States. You can imagine that these dudes must have some kinda mojo—besides the commodified kind—driving their stomping sojourn through the states. This amazing ensemble of purposeful performers will appear at Popejoy Hall onFriday, April 26 from 7:30pm until the curtain falls at 10pm, celebrating all that emanates from the concept of the South American gaucho, from hard work to throwing tools about the stage in a choreographed frenzy. All ages can join this jaunty fun for between $35 and $65; tickets are available at popejoypresents.com.
