Barbed Wire Open Mic Series

When I lived in Portland, I attended an open mic series at least once a week, and here in El Paso, local Richie Marrufo has been hosting and hustling to bring some of the city's most exciting creatives in front of the mic for the last few years. A sign-up sheet will be available for those who wish to perform. Spots are limited, so make plans to be there early (or DM them on the day of the event). Open to all genres, and it is an all-ages show.

Moon Over Buffalo at the El Paso Playhouse

Take a show at the El Paso Playhouse in the Ken Ludwig comedy Moon Over Buffalo, directed by Mario Rodriguez. The comedy centers around George and Charlotte Hay, fading theater stars of the 1950s. The stars receive word that they might have one last shot at stardom when famous director Frank Capra heads to town to see their matinee and might cast them in a movie. Unfortunately, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, helped by a visit from their daughter's clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they're performing.
  • Date: Friday & Saturday - February 18 & 19, 2022, at 8 p.m.
  • Location: El Paso Playhouse at 2501 Montana Ave, 79903
