Arts and entertainment: Top picks for the week

Copyright © 2018 Albuquerque Journal

Dana wants her doctors to believe that she’s psychotic. And how does she do that? She takes on the personality of Major League Baseball star Darryl Strawberry. “The Sweetest Swing in Baseball,” showing in Santa Fe starting Saturday, stars Debrianna Mansini as the down-on-her-luck artist who is trying to extend her stay in the mental ward where she was taken following a suicide attempt. She channels Strawberry, a player known for his personal and legal troubles as much as his baseball career, as an alter ego. The dark comedy will be at Warehouse 21, 1614 Paseo de Peralta, until July 29. It is being produced by For Giving Productions and Red Thread Santa Fe. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 4 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $25 for general admission, and $20 for students and seniors; they are available at www.brownpapertickets.com.

Max McLean plays the beloved author recalling his life experiences and how he eventually “gave in” to conversion, and eventually became one of the most famous Christian minds and authors of his time. Before that, Lewis had spent years as an atheist. “C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert” will run at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at The Lensic, 211 W. San Francisco. Tickets range between $39-89 and can be purchased at www.ticketssantafe.org, by phone at 505-988-1234 or at The Lensic Box Office.

TIME CAPSULE: Local teens have filled it with personal and worldly relics – bits of soil, seeds, family photos, poems and even baby teeth. This weekend, they will bury these mementoes of today’s world in a time capsule with hopes it will be found years in the future. During the 2016-17 school year, in conjunction with the “Future Shock” exhibition at SITE Santa Fe, Houston-based artist Dario Robleto worked with New Mexico School for the Arts students to create a 12-compartment time capsule named “The Sun Awaits our Shadows.” The project was inspired by The Golden Record, recordings of various sounds from the Earth, from Chuck Berry to classical music, that were launched into space in 1977. This time capsule has its own record, in which all of the students’ heartbeats and their messages for the future were recorded. Saturday’s burial at SITE Santa Fe, 1606 Paseo de Peralta, is at 6 p.m. outside by the events porch. It is free and open to the public.
