More Americans than ever before say they are suffering from allergies. It is estimated that some 50 million Americans suffer from some type of allergy and the overall prevalence of allergies has been steadily climbing since the early 1980’s - across all age, sex, and racial groups. In this presentation, Dr. Stuart Garber will discuss how to safely and effectively treat allergies without the side effects of drugs.

Cost / How to register: Members, free; Non-members, $5. Contact by e-mail or phone:, 505-501-8187.

Theater Grottesco: Theater Grottesco’s PIE, A New Theatrical Creation

PIE, a new theatrical creation
April 13 - April 30, 2017
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:00 pm. Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm
Adobe Rose Theatre
1213 Parkway Dr., Suite B
Santa Fe, NM 87507

“If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” – Carl Sagan

Theater Grottesco presents PIE, the company’s 15th original production. PIE is a layman’s exploration of how we got to where we are, inspired by the provocative Carl Sagan quote above. Grottesco’s take is a complete (very abridged) history of the planet, from moments before the big bang to the electronic baroque of today, exploding with madcap humor as the mundane collides with the celestial.

Four character actors come together in a stellar ensemble cast, dexterously moving between emotionally driven clownish characters, and their outrageously inflated buffoon alter-egos. Blending styles of the Naïve and the Buffoon, Grottesco uses its broad stylistic palette to create surprise and wonder as it holds up a mirror to the current state of the planet and its people, while sneaking up on life’s great questions.

The cast includes theater, music, dance, and circus artists Apollo Garcia, Danielle Reddick, John Flax, and Tara Khozein. PIE was devised and written by the ensemble, under the direction of Kent Kirkpatrick. The production team includes Sculptor Patrick Mehaffy, Composer J.A. Deane, Costumer Sara Bradley, Lighting Designer Skip Rappaport, and Graphic Designer Robert Brady. 

Cost / How to Register: General Admission: $25; Students: $12; All Thursday Performances: Pay-What-You-Wish. Tickets available at
