Film and Industry Night at Mother Road Theatre Company
I haven't posted too much about theater events recently (at least not here), but I wanted to make a special mention of what the Mother Road Theatre Company is doing -- especially since they've got a special Film and Theatre Industry night.
Mother Road is the group that produced a special event with Alan Arkin last month, and their cast includes several stars who'll be familiar to fans of local film and theater alike. Hope to see you there this Thursday.

Mother Road Theatre Company, Albuquerque's dynamic, new professional theatre company located at The Filling Station on historic pre-1937 Route 66 hits "The Open Road" with the launch of its first season and its debut production, The Odyssey, by David Farr directed by Artistic Director, Julia Thudium.
The Odyssey is a modern look the classical epic by Homer:
Wayward Odysseus washes up on a modern foreign shore. Rather than receiving a hero's welcome he is locked up in a detention center as an illegal immigrant. Trying to convince the officials of his identity while hiding it from the Trojans he displaced after sacking their sacred city, he recounts his adventures and ten-year long attempt to return to his home in Ithaca – from his encounter with the Cyclops through his journey to the Land of the Dead.
This retelling of Homer's Odyssey by British playwright David Farr is both classical and topical. The show will feature live original music composed specifically for this production by Ernest Sturdevant. The cast features leaders in the Albuquerque theatre scene: Jean Effron, William Sterchi, Steve Corona, Kristín de la O, Chris Gonzales, Ray Orley, Bridget Kelly, K'Lynn Childress and Vic Browder as Odysseus.
