Love in its many forms

-A A +A
By Gina Velasquez

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Española MainStreet Theatre put on a series of romantic and not so romantic productions. “Love is Never Easy” is 10 separate vignettes adapted from various works centered around a love theme.
The production spanned through a number of genres and time periods — and not all stories concluded with a happy ending.
The first two short segments were a quick cappella of “Fly Me To The Moon,” sung by Don Hassemer, followed by the sonnet “How Do I Love Thee,” from Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and performed by Shirley “Joan” Walker. The skit was pulled off as a sweet serenade between two strangers of the older persuasion.
The story of “Bluesman” was worthy of a mention. The story from a character named Suzanna about Herbert Jackson Walker, who left her in a favor of a music career. A blues guitar wails off stage, played by Eric Archuleta. Janet Rodriguez does a sultry, dramatic and slightly bitter monologue about the wayward lover.
“He Said and She Said” was a painful back and forth with a manipulative gossip queen (played by Kaitlin Calkins) at the helm. Her “idle tongue” almost destroys the lives of everyone around her.
