Review from Guidestar

The Vortex Theatre in Albuquerque NM is composed of experienced theatre professionals who create both entertaining theatre but also stretch my imagination and challenge me to learn more.

I have met several of the actors and directors and thus am drawn closer to the Vortex.

My wife
and I attend several performances yearly, and will be next at the Vortex on February 19th. Additionally, I am looking forward to seeing their subsequent play of Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana, later in the spring.

The Great!

Plays such as Passengers on the Ship of Fools.

The Vortex is one of the reasons I live in Albuquerque. The plays are not always ones that I would choose, but when they produce work that interests me, the acting is always first rate and production values are high.

The Vortex has always been a great place to perform and attend live performances. As a "backstage kid" when I am at the Vortex it is like coming home.

The Vortex Theatre has been providing live stage performances for 35 years and has always been able to present a broad variety of plays from classics to cutting edge to musicals to drama and has always challenged the audiences to be both entertained as well as inspired. The theatre has kept its doors open through good and bad economic times and has done major collaborations with local school and community organizations. I ahve been proud to have been a part of this Albuquerque tradition for 24 years now and expect to continue working with them as well as enjoying the great theater perhaps for another 24.

I've been as close to this organization as a person can get and have helped nurture it in its tough periods and enjoyed the fruits when it was doing well.

Organizations can always use some change but we're in a good place now and we just tweak things as we go along.

I have attended productions at the Vortex regularly since moving to ABQ four years ago. I have found the quality of the productions quite good. Perhaps the best show I've seen at the Vortex was the Oscar Wilde play. It was very well done, and I attended the discussion afterward with members of the cast and representatives of the ACLU. I'm looking forward to this summer's Shakespeare repertory. The improvements to the venue (air conditioning, e.g.) are appreciated.

The seating arrangements can be difficult for those with difficulty climbing stairs. I usually attend with friends who are a bit older and have had joint replacements, etc., and if we aren't among the first in line, they sometimes have problems climbing to their seats.

Quality community theater! Terrific casts and crews. A wonderful variety of presentations. All conveniently located near the University of New Mexico in the cultural hub of the Duke City.

They were incredibly supportive of my special daughter's theatrical aspirations. They were sweet and empathetic.

I wish they had a better physical facility. Their theater, backstage area, offices and scenery shop are pretty basic.

I've been to many plays at the Vortex. It presents consistently high quality community theater. Having lived in Chicago, Alexandria, and now Albuquerque, I have to say the Vortex is probably second only to Steppenwolf of Chicago in quality for a non-professional company.

The verve and
dedication of their actors, directors, technical people, volunteers and board members cannot be surpassed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing others entertained and edified by their theater experience.

Somehow secure for them a source of funding that would allow them to offer discounts for senior citizens tickets.
