In this week’s arts section, writer Christie Chisholm previewed David Garver’s one-man show, The Age Between Sage and Fool. Searching for an identity amidst mid-life crisis, Garver penned the production in which he plays a handful of men with his predicament. Inlcuded are a baseball manager, a spiritual sex guru and an Elvis impersonator working in a retirement home. Garver has interspersed film clips into the production to give him time to transform from one character to the next. The show runs this weekend at The Filling Station (1024 Fourth Street SW), with the first of three performances kicking off this evening at 8 p.m.

Venue change for “The Dumb Waiter”
In our October 20th issue, we ran a preview of director Frank Melcori’s staging of Harold Pinter’s “The Dumb Waiter.” The show premiered last weekend at Bébé Café in Old Town, but has since been moved due to complications with a landlord and neighbors, Melcori tells the Alibi. This weekend’s shows will run at The Filling Station (1024 Fourth Street SW) on Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m. (as opposed to the previous listing of Friday and Saturday). The larger venue should help accomodate theatergoers who couldn’t get into last week’s sold-out shows. Admission is $10.

Mother Road gives catching a movie a run for its money
There's music in the dark. Someone shuffles onto the stage and sits, but a guitar strum cuts through the silence for a long while, almost too long. Uncomfortably long.

Duke City Rep reaps dividends by building Trust
If all Albuquerque’s a stage, and all Burqueños merely players, then the folks behind Duke City Repertory Theatre are those talented understudies waiting giddily in the wings for their big shot at the spotlight.
Local artists do it alone
A cast party for a solo show is basically somebody wearing a little too much eyeliner drinking alone. There’s no one with whom to reminisce about the nice save when one actor forgot his lines or joke about the lead actress’ penchant for hiding props.
