You can have it all: Rap­ture, Blis­ter, Burn

Pasatiempo - - NEWS -

Since the rise of the fem­i­nist move­ment, women have been try­ing to achieve the per­fect work/ life bal­ance, or what is known as “hav­ing it all” — a great ca­reer, a part­ner, chil­dren, and a nice place to live. Some­times in the in­ter­net age, it seems that ev­ery con­ver­sa­tion about whether or not it’s an achiev­able goal has al­ready been had. But Gina Gion­friddo’s Pulitzer Prize-nom­i­nated Rap­ture, Blis­ter, Burn brings heady and com­i­cal new life to the topic when two old col­lege friends are re­united, in a play that is about far more than aca­demic the­ory and the short­com­ings of se­cond-wave feminism. A staged read­ing of the play at Cen­ter Stage (505 Camino de Los Mar­quez) is a fundraiser for Emerge New Mex­ico, an or­ga­ni­za­tion that trains women to run for elected of­fice. There are two pre­sen­ta­tions, on Satur­day, March 5, at 7 p.m., and Sun­day, March 6, at 4 p.m. Tick­ets, $20, can be re­served at www.emer­ or pur­chased at the door. For in­for­ma­tion, call 505- 438- 6078. — Jen­nifer Levin
