Melodrama in space: This weekend the Edgewood Lions Club sponsored a new melodrama at Wildlife West by Jo White, entitled, “A True Parody: Planet Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet Star Trek, or, I married a Vulcan, almost!” Performers here were dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as part of the show by the Melodrama Masters Leos. Katrina Perlman and Tim Ecton, who played Juliet and Romeo, respectively, will be in an online commercial Nov. 10 to advertise the fact that some of Shakespeare’s original folios will be in Santa Fe next year, White said.
