Un­mel­low melo­drama: I Do, I Do, Too-Doo

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

In I Do, I Do, Too-Doo or The Heart House Home for Gals , a new melo­drama writ­ten and di­rected by Les­lie Joy Cole­man, a group of home­less but plucky sin­gle women of the 1890s put on a dance re­vue to raise money for their up­keep and to at­tract el­i­gi­ble suit­ors. Led by Madam Heart, the des­per­ate women must foil the evil plans of the vil­lai­ness, Ebony Tresses, who is out to ruin their rep­u­ta­tions. Hero­ine Clarisse Clear­wa­ter pines for the af­fec­tions of the hero, Bernard Brain, who joins forces with Sher­iff West C. Hol­lis­ter to save the day — with help from, among oth­ers, a belly dancer, a Span­ish bomb­shell, and a kind spin­ster. The show, a pro­duc­tion of the South­West Ru­ral Theatre Project, plays at Teatro Paraguas Stu­dio (3205 Calle Marie) at 7:30 p.m. on Satur­day, March 14, for one night only. Tick­ets are $12, with dis­counts avail­able, and can be re­served by call­ing 505-424-1601. (Ad­di­tional per­for­mances take place at Al­bu­querque’s Cell Theatre from Thurs­day, March 19, to March 22; call 505-776-9412.) — Jen­nifer Levin
