About the show:
Immortal Longings: An Argument Erupts Among Shakespeare's Greatest Women
What would happen if one of Shakespeare’s most famous women departed from her script? In Immortal Longings, Juliet decides she wants to live, and nine other leading ladies take sides. Must Juliet follow her destiny as set out for her by The Bard, or should she be allowed to choose her own ending? Join audiences at the Vortex as Viola, Rosalind, Portia, Kate, Desdemona, Lady Macbeth, Beatrice, Cleopatra, and Ophelia present arguments from their own plays. There is love, comedy, murder, disguises, suicide, and even a sword fight! Join us for the New Mexico premier of Immortal Longings! [www.vortexabq.org]
The cast has been rehearsing elsewhere, and this will be their first night on the actual stage where they will perform, so we will watch as scenes are reblocked with platforms in place….. and that includes the sword fight.
DATE: Monday, April 18
TIME: 6:00pm (sword fight); 7:00 (talk with cast); 7:30 (Act I rehearsal). Come for whichever parts interest you. Note that schedule could change.
PLACE: Vortex Theatre, 2900 Carlisle NE (enter through Stage Door. Facing the main entrance, it is a few yards to the right)
FREE and exclusive for TLC members (a perk of membership); no guests. Reservations must be made online at www.abqtheatreguild.org.
