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

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.

Bee-Luther-Hatchee

Bee-Luther-Hatchee

Who has the right to a life’s story—the person who lived it, or the people who were touched by it? This is the central unanswerable question behind Bee-Luther-Hatchee, a play by Thomas Gibbons…. Intelligent and unsettling, Bee-Luther-Hatchee pulls off a nearly impossible trick: creating a situation in which two people, at a complete bypass, are both right and […]

Word/Play

Pasadena POPS in Summer
