Albuquerque On Stage

Revolutions International Theatre Festival is put on by Albuquerque's own Tricklock Company, and spans January 14-February 2. It is also a busy time in the seasons of other local theaters such as Popejoy Hall, which brings in primarily touring shows, and Albuquerque Little Theatre, Fusion Theatre Company, Opera Southwest and Duke City Repertory Theatre which feature local productions, and the Albuquerque Theatre Guild, which is an association of over 30 local theaters.

Benjy Stone is a first-year writer on the “King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade” TV show (it smacks of Your Show of Shows starring Sid Caesar). The guest host for this week is Allan Swann, an over-the hill drunken, swashbuckling movie star. Benjy writes the script for a 3 Musketeers sketch, is ordered to keep Swann sober and under control, accompanies Swann to dinner at his mother’s Brooklyn apartment, and ultimately convinces Swann to reconcile with his estranged daughter. (oh – and Benjy gets the show’s female assistant as his girlfriend). Much of the comedy results from a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for the TV show. It features a hilarious script and superb music.
