Is it a government conspiracy? The result of squalor and unhealthy living? God’s revenge on the weak and unworthy? Is it a social commentary on the times we live in?

Las Cruces Community Theatre (LCCT) is bringing back a classic of the American theatre with its production of “Arsenic and Old Lace,” which opens Friday, Jan. 31, for a three-weekend run at LCCT, 313 N. Main St. downtown. more
Black Box Theatre (BBT), 420 N. Main St. downtown, continues its 20th season with a production of Eugene Ionesco’s “The Killing Game.” Ionesco (1912-93), who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature in 1964, wrote the play in 1970, which features “an unnamed city in an unnamed country beset by an unnamed plague,” said Marissa Bond, who is directing the production. “Quarantined from the rest of the world and hemmed in by unknowns, how does the population of the city deal with the horror? Not well. Ionesco’s absurdist play uses gleefully dark humor and an unrelenting examination of human nature combine to keep us unbalanced and uncertain, but laughing through it all.” more

BCTC’s production of the musical “The Last Five Years” will run from Feb. 7-16 (including a Valentine’s Day performance) at Mayfield High School. Find BCTC on Facebook. more

Without giving too much away right off the bat, I think the real story behind the long title is pretty simple: Black Box Theatre’s current production of “How to Survive Your Family at Christmas” is about all the detours and blocked exits along the road that ultimately leads to redemption – with some tinsel and a few holiday decorations thrown in. more
Las Cruces Community Theatre has a long history of great Christmas shows. Their current production of “A Christmas Story: The Musical” is right up there among the best-ever. more

As a playwright, Las Cruces’ Mark Medoff was known for anti-heroes and strong women. In a way, Rio Grande Theatre’s production of his final play “Time and Chance” combined the best of both in an abbreviated (because of actors’ commitments) run Nov. 7-9. It was an incredible production that I will never forget – a taste of Broadway for someone who’s never been there. more
