A Tale of Two Cities: Murdertown and Safeville

It’s a tale of two cities: one is the self-declared “Safest Large City in America” while right next door, the other has earned the dubious distinction of “Murder Capital of the World.” Director Ruben Polendo and Theater Mitu have distilled hundreds of hours of interviews and audio recordings from Juárez, Mexico, and its neighbor to the north — El Paso, Texas, — into a theater stage experience that tells the story of the impact of globalization on the two communities. 

Juarez: A Documentary Mythology: Saturday at 8 p.m. $5-$24. MASS MoCA, 1040 MASS MoCA Way, North Adams. (413) 662-2111, info@massmoca.org.
