Celebrating Peacocks

It’s all things peacock at the Arboretum on March 25. “Proud as a Peacock” unfurls the mysteries of the peafowl’s plumage and the courting secrets and rituals.

Music All Dressed Up

“It’s runway the MUSE/IQUE way.” Mingling, dining, music, and a runway show.

The Health Seekers

The Health Seekers

Our own Michele Zack, an Altadena resident and author of histories of Altadena and Sierra Madre, speaks on illness as a major factor in the 19th and 20th centuries immigration to Southern California.

Loteria III

Loteria III

Once again, Cactus Gallery calls on its artists to imagine and interpret. To celebrate the 12th birthday of Sandra Mastroianni’s Cactus Gallery, she asked for “modern interpretations of the iconic ‘Don Clemente Gallo‘ Loteria deck. “This year, in addition to the original 54 images, we will be introducing a second, lesser known set of Loteria […]

Arroyo Seco Music Festival

Arroyo Seco Music Festival

Tom Petty, Weezer, Mumford & Sons. Need we say more? Not really. Though we will. This inaugural Arroyo Seco Weekend is scheduled for June 24 and 25, and is promoted by Goldenvoice, the folks behind Coachella (so watch out). We can’t quite picture how it will be set up as the location is stated only as the […]

“Modern Works” Spring Home Tour

You […]

Collective Rage: A Play in 5 Boops

Collective Rage: A Play in 5 Boops

Here’s a hook: In Collective Rage, five different Bettys collide at the intersection of anger, sex, and “thea-tah.” Broadway World calls Jen Silverman’s play—now in production at The Theatre @ Boston Court, through March 19—as “a perfect balance between the really absurd and the absurdly real.” Well now, doesn’t that fit our times? The Washington […]

2017 Festival of Women Authors

2017 Festival of Women Authors

From veblens to a lady cop in 1910, it must be the Pasadena Festival of Women Authors being held on April 8.

King Lear at ANW

King Lear at ANW

This may be a little close to home given the current political climate and who holds the pinnacle political seat in our country, but on the other hand, perhaps the timing is perfect. A Noise Within presents King Lear, opening on February 15 and running through May 6. The gut-wrenching devastation of Lear encompasses more than one man’s […]
