Jewel Box Series Presents Scaffolding Theatre’s ‘Five Course Love’

Three actors play 15 characters in five different settings in the Scaffolding Theatre Company’s production of Five Course Love, the next presentation in the El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box Series at the Philanthropy Theatre.

In Five Course Love, director Megan McQueen joins Algernon D’Ammassa and Brandon Brown to play 15 characters in search of true love in five different musical and physical settings — a BBQ joint, a mob hangout, a German restaurant, a Mexican cantina and a diner.  “It’s kind of like five musicals for the price of one, because each has such a different, spot-on musical style,” McQueen said. “It’s sure to get the toes tapping and heart singing.”

 

Scaffolding Theatre Company, an affiliate of New Mexico State University theater department, performed two sold-out shows of its adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in last season’s Jewel Box Series.

The Jewel Box Series is produced in partnership with El Paso Live, and is supported by the City of El Paso’s Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.

Performances of the irreverent Gregg Coffin musical comedy will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, January 13 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, January 14 in the Philanthropy Theatre on the second floor of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre Annex (above the box office).

Tickets are $16 at the Plaza Theatre box office, Ticketmaster outlets, online, and 800-745-3000.
