Chekhov Adaptation at Boston Court

Chekhov Adaptation at Boston Court

If you are a Chekhov buff, you know his short story “Ward 6.” If you are a local theater buff, you know Boston Court (of course) and probably Theatre Movement Bazaar. BC and TMB have collaborated on an adaptation of “Ward 6,” which they’re calling “The Treatment,” a piece of “movement-based storytelling” about a complacent [...]

Norwegian and Danish Boys Choirs at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church

Norwegian and Danish Boys Choirs at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church

You’re probably wondering, connoisseurs of Norwegian and Danish boys choirs that you are, which Norwegian and Danish boys choirs we’re referring to. Well, you’ll be pleased to know, I think, fans of Norwegian and Danish boys choirs that you are, that it’s Vor Frue Kirkes Drenge-Mandskor and Vanse Guttekor-Deo Gloria. They’re good. They’re completing a [...]

The TACIT Rover at Caltech

The TACIT Rover at Caltech

Not an interstellar rover, like you might expect from Caltech, but a theatrical production. TACIT, or Theater Arts at the California Institute of Technology, led by Brian Brophy, regularly puts on good shows. Next up is The Rover, written in 1667 by Aphra Behn, England’s first professional female playwright, who was also a spy. This [...]

A Drawing Class at the Norton Simon

A Drawing Class at the Norton Simon

Maybe the photography workshop at the PMH isn’t for you—you don’t like cameras, think they are idolatrous. Maybe you like to make images with your hands, holding brushes or charcoal or pens or pencils. Maybe, then, this Friday’s drawing class at the Norton Simon with José Antonio Aguirre is more your style. It has a [...]

Photography Workshop at PMH: The Basics of Composition

Photography Workshop at PMH: The Basics of Composition

The Pasadena Museum of History is hosting a series of photography workshops for practitioners of all levels, led by some of the PMH’s favorite professionals: “Sharp Shooters: Photography Workshops with Focus.” This Saturday is #2 in the series, “The Basics of Composition with Ibarionex Perello,” an adjunct at the Art Center with a very cool [...]

Il Voce at Caltech

Il Voce at Caltech

Have you ever heard of “Popera,” or “Classical Crossover?” Neither have we, but apparently it’s a global phenomenon. Il Voce puts a “fresh face” on this global phenomenon, which we think means they’re like a classical boy band. With girls. Anyway, they sound pretty good. They’ll be at Caltech this Friday, doing their interpretations of [...]

Privatizing the League of Women Voters

Privatizing the League of Women Voters

The title of this post is misleading in all sorts of way, but hopefully sensational enough to get you to read the post, which is about an important issue: privatization. A controversial subject, to put it mildly. We’ll refrain from expressing an opinion here, other than to suggest that you might want to check out [...]

South Pas Art Crawl

South Pas Art Crawl

Crawling has become a popular activity for grownups as well as infants. If you are interested in trying out grownup crawling, but aren’t too keen on its most common expression—the pub crawl—then this Saturday’s South Pasadena Art Crawl may be for you. In addition to a supportive environment in which to get around on hand [...]

Support the Coffee Gallery!

Support the Coffee Gallery!

If you pay much attention to local bureaucratic outrages, you’ve probably heard rumblings about the Coffee Gallery Backstage’s problems with the county, which have worked themselves out, sort of: the county isn’t going to shut them down, but because the CGB is in a mixed-use area, they need a conditional use permit, which means they [...]

The Edited Trio in Pasadena

The Edited Trio in Pasadena

The Edited Trio are in the middle of a seven-country tour to promote their new CD, “Infinite Distance.” They’re an eclectic bunch with an eclectic background that resists summary—you can read about them here. Most importantly, they’re good. They’ll be playing Firefly in South Pas this Wednesday, and then a private show this Friday. RSVP [...]
