Joe West, the musician, actor, and cultural iconoclast behind the Santa Fe All-Stars, Joe West and the Santa Fe Revue, and Xoë Fitzgerald: Time Traveling Transvestite, now brings to the stage a unique theatrical production. Joe West’s Theater of Death is billed as “an evening of plays inspired by the Grand Guignol of Paris.” The French theater was known for putting on sensational and horrific shows and thrived during the first half of the 20th century. West writes that it even “claimed to have a ‘doctor on duty’ at all performances to treat audience members who had fainted or had heart problems from what they saw.” The production features a number of guest musicians, including Anthony Leon and Daniel Jaramillo, with shows slated to run at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 25 and 26, and Thursday to Saturday, May 1 to 3, at the Engine House Theater in The Mine Shaft Tavern (2846 N.M. 14, Madrid). Tickets, $15, are available at The Candyman Strings & Things (851 St. Michael’s Drive, 505-983-5906) in Santa Fe and at The Mine Shaft. To reserve tickets to be picked up at the venue, call 505-471-1916. — L.B.
