Earlier this year, we told you about some of the great theatre performances coming to Albuquerque, and the shows for 2015 look to be just as promising! If you’ve booked a hotel room in Albuquerque for the first half of this year, make sure you attend one of the fantastic shows going on in the city.

If you’re a fan of Henry David Thoreau’s work, you won’t want to miss this riveting play during your stay in Albuquerque! “The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail” focuses on just that—Thoreau’s time in jail for not paying taxes that would be used to support the Mexican-American War.

Sometimes we take on roles out of necessity, and sometimes those roles then take on us. This exact thing happened for main character Paul Biegler in the courtroom drama “Anatomy of a Murder.” After losing re-election for District Attorney, Biegler takes on a rather hefty first case in his new role as a defense attorney—one of a lieutenant who allegedly murdered a bartender who raped his wife.
