Plumeria Grafting

Plumeria Grafting

Apparently grafted plumeria trees bloom in a variety of colors. That’s an interesting idea. But how does one graft? Diana Donnellan leads a hands-on workshop “exploring both the mechanics of grafting as well as best practices” on June 17. Donnellan will show on the grove’s demonstration trees examples of “good” grafting and “bad” grafting, which […]

Mystery Lit: Holmes, Sherlock & the Consulting Detective

Mystery Lit: Holmes, Sherlock & the Consulting Detective

Ellen Dostal writing for Broadway Word calls it a “roguishly handsome production” and an “epic whodunit” with a cast that has “whip-smart abilities.

Our hot weather has yet to descend upon us, thankfully, but we figure it’s never too early to consider what cocktails should be concocted for summer parties, outdoor barbecues, July 4th celebrations, and for when temperatures climb into the high […]

Hold These Truths

Hold These Truths

Hold These Truths is currently playing at the Pasadena Playhouse. Saw this play last night. By far, one of the best I’ve ever seen. Deep, heart wrenching yet ironically entertaining true account of the Japanese concentration camps during WWII. Hits home on so many levels. E.G: Did you know American families were confined to live like […]

The Last Five Years

The Last Five Years

Brian Elerding is Executive Director of Lineage Performing Arts Center. We first met him through the Ensemble Shakespeare Theatre Company, which now performs at Descanso Gardens. Elerding is one of the good guys. He’s creative, approachable, generous with his time, passionate, and philanthropic—and supports events and productions in the same vein. If you see his name connected […]
