New Mexico Shakespeare Festival 2022

Aug 5 – Sep 3
New Mexico Veterans Memorial
1100 Louisiana Blvd SE #5009, Albuquerque, NM

We are delighted to announce that our exciting 2022 season will run August 5th - September 3.

King Lear will be directed by Debi Kierst

The play is about families—about fathers and daughters, fathers and sons, sisters and their husbands and lovers, brothers natural and unnatural. Ordinary jealousies, demands for love, sibling rivalries, desire for money and power, and petty cruelties are all taken to the extreme. It has been considered by many to be Shakespeare's crowning artistic achievement.

As You Like It will be directed by Julia Thudium

The play is being set in in its own time, Arden time. In this version, the mythical forest of Arden is where magic reigns and impossible things happen every day. This show will be filled with music and movement, laughter and most especially joy, joy for the audience and joy for the players.

Both shows promise to be terrific nights in the theatre, under the fabulous New Mexico sky.
