VORTEX has a new home for the 2014-2015 Season and this move has catapulted all their operations up one notch. Their Summer Shakespeare Season on the Plaza is also a great move. With 28 years of experience Vortex is a great cultural asset for Albuquerque and New Mixico

Over the past few years, the Vortex has offered productions of the highest quality. I believe it is the most consistently interesting of the 37+ theatre-producing organizations in the greater Albuquerque area. I am thinking of shows like "Medea," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," "Much Ado about Nothing," "The Little Foxes," and "Glengarry Glen Ross"--all of them first-rate. The theatre is also receptive to new work by contemporary playwrights, with a new-short-play festival every year and sometimes a full-length new work as well. Finally, the Vortex is an outstanding citizen of the theatre community, helping other theatre groups and participating in community-wide theatre initiatives.

Congratulations to the Vorticists for maintaining their longstanding tradition of superb live-theatre activity.

I began volunteering at The Vortex after being wowed by their summer Shakespeare Festival. Fabulous performances, especially John Hardman as a helmet-thwacking policeman. They produce a wide variety of pieces, from classics to locally-written, which gives me a new appreciation for theatre and exposes me to works I'd never see otherwise.

All-in-all, The Vortex is a vital part of the Albuquerque arts and theatre scene. We're lucky to have it.

The Vortex Theatre is awesome. They put on first rate productions from the classics to contemporary. They support new and local playwrites. Provide great learning ground for interns. Given that Central New Mexico Community College does not have a theatre, classes are held at the Vortex. This enhances the theatre classes offered at CNM allows for technical classes where the students learn hands on in an actual theatrical shop. it is a great venue to experience the joy of live theatre

The Vortex has a very special place in my heart as this was the first theatre that I performed in. The relationship that the Vortex has with Central NM Community College is wonderful and gives new actors a place to hone their craft in both the classics and new pieces. They encourage writers throughout NM as well as the country to have their pieces performed for the first time and gives the audience the opportunity to be the judge during their 10 minute play festival. The theatre is small and cozy allowing the audience to become almost a character within the play. Very unique experiences are to be had for both the audience and performers.

I have been involved in live theatre for many years, including volunteering at the Vortex Theatre in various roles. I have enjoyed many excellent productions over the past 10-20 years. I especially appreciate their putting on a variety of plays, almost one a month. Among the 20 or so theatres in Albuquerque, they are clearly one of the best.

As a new board memeber, I have particapated in the Vortex theater in many different roles, Stage Manager, Director, and many others. I am generally impressed by the level of theater produced at the Vortex, it is certianly setting the standard for Theater in Albuquerque. Along with keeping the bar high, the Vortex is always pushing for more from their productions. I am pleased to be assocated with this venue. If you want to fund the arts in a ever growing city, then the Vortex is a great place to start.

The Vortex Theatre consistently puts on great shows. It's a wonderful place to get involved in community theater--after a small amount of stage experience in high school, working at the Vortex always feels like The Big Time to me. I'm awed by the sets, props, costumes, tech, direction, and stage management in every show, not to mention the exemplary actors with whom I've had the good fortune to work.
