I went to go see this show on April 17th. This is the quintessential New Mexican story. Well acted, especially by the kids. Very emotional and fun. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Our first time at the Vortex...wonderfully quaint! The play and cast of The Seven Year Itch was wonderful! Definitely worth it and it won't be the last show we see here.

Every time you go it's like a different theater as they rearrange then seating for each production. Often have a fresh approach to classics, fun with comedies, and three great Shakespeare's each summer never a ho hum evening.
