A New Mexican in Paris: An American in Paris through the eyes of a 15-year-old (Review)

Sara Esty and Garen Scribner in An American in Paris. Photo by Matthew Murphy. The touring company of An American in Paris made its way to New Mexico and they did not disappoint. Because of its elaborate, but simple, background sets and beautiful abstract ballet choreography, it was truly a sight to see! The show follows Jerry, played by McGee Maddox, an American soldier who decides to stay in Paris after the end of World War II. He falls in love with a young ballet dancer who is also the dream girl for the soldier’s two friends. The rest of the play is about the quarrels the three friends have while all working on the same ballet that the woman was chosen to star in. I was very excited with

October 2017 - Cover Story: Lampedusa Concerts for Refugees

As the world seems to be in a state of uncertainty, many are doing their best to help provide for those less fortunate. Jesuit Refugee Service/USA, in partnership with the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has created a star-studded concert to bring awareness to refugees needing assistance. Lampedusa: Concerts for Refugees is raising money to support expanded educational opportunities for displaced people through JRS's Global Education Initiative. The tour name, Lampedusa, is named after the island off the coast of Sicily that provides a waypoint for refugees from North Africa as they search for safety. The funds raised from the concerts will help refugees to heal, learn, and thrive. The tour w

October 2017 - Let Us Entertain You: Abigail's Party

Abigail’s Party was devised and directed in 1977 by English playwright/director, Mike Leigh. Laurence and Beverly are entertaining their new neighbors, Angela and Tony, as well as their divorced neighbor, Susan. Susan’s teenage daughter, Abigail, is having a party to which Susan is not invited. Over drinks and snacks, clichés and fatuous small talk abound. It is a suburban situation comedy of manners, and a satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle class that emerged in Great Britain in the 1970s. According to director, Marty Epstein, “it is about relationships, about the British class structure in the late 1970’s and the desires of the characters to move up that ladder into tha

October 2017 - Between the Pages: Abandoned in Place

This well-produced coffee-table book is filled with starkly beautiful photographs that evoke bittersweet memories contrasting America’s “glory days” of space exploration with the abandoned remnants of infrastructure that made them possible half a century or more ago. The oversize book fills the reader’s lap with words and with images that surpass words. Rolland Miller is a photographer and a dedicated space buff. As a child during the 1960s, he was fascinated by science-fiction-turned- reality, and as an adult, he says he was “hooked” when he saw his first rocket launch in 1984. A few years later, when he was working at Cape Canaveral, he was struck by the “ruins of early space flight” and c

October 2017 - Extras: Stage Stop

The men slowly gathered around the old plastic outdoor tables. At dusk, the lights come on over the rustic red sign of the Stage Stop on Highway 4 in Jemez Springs. The patio is filling with chatter and bystanders. The roosters crow in the background, sometimes with approval and sometimes not. One by one, another case is unloaded and set to the side. Silvery hair blows in the breeze. Water glasses and a pitcher are set out on the table. Papers are rustled, whispers from the other tables become louder as the food begins to arrive. I’m feeling jealous of my friend Posole until my green chile cheeseburger with mushrooms arriving moments later. The rooster and chicken walk around the perimeter o
