BEST LIVE THEATRE
This Summer, The Pasadena Playhouse will present two critically acclaimed productions. First up is THE MADWOMAN IN THE VOLVO, a comedy based on Sandra Tsing Loh’s memoir of the same name. Loh identified herself as someone who is from the “Triple M Generation—menopausal, middle-aged and a mother.” The New York Times selected MADWOMAN as one of their 100 Notable Books of 2014. And, the Los Angeles Times recently named her play a “Critics’ Choice!” Starring Sandra Tsing Loh, Caroline Aaron and Shannon Holt. THE MADWOMAN IN THE VOLVO plays June 2– June 26.
Next, another American biographical tale is told as Hershey Felder triumphantly returns to The Pasadena Playhouse in HERSHEY FELDER AS IRVING BERLIN. HERSHEY FELDER AS IRVING BERLIN is a musical journey celebrating iconic American composer Irving Berlin and his biggest songs, like “God Bless America,” “White Christmas,” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” From the depths of anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia to New York’s Lower East Side, and ultimately all of America and the world, Berlin’s story epitomizes the American Dream. HERSHEY FELDER AS IRVING BERLIN plays July 19- Aug. 7.
