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

“Modern Works” Spring Home Tour

Pasadena Heritage is embracing the modern world. Well, modern architecture that is, and modern meaning post 1945. (We are talking about our heritage here.) The houses on the Pasadena Heritage Spring Home Tour, on March 26, spans from “hyper-contemporary” to experimental and from “Mid-Century post-and-beam to late modern glass-and-steel wonders.” This is a drive-yourself 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. Tickets tend to vanish as this has become quite a popular event (though it does offer a wait list). This year’s authors include Elizabeth McKenzie, author of The Portable Veblen and Amy Stewart […]

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 […]

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

Word/Play

No one tells MUSE/IQUE to sit in the corner and be quiet… From Stephen Sondheim to Bob Dylan and Carole King, from Cole Porter to Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda—sometimes lyricists are so brilliant that their work becomes the word. In a local temple of literacy, MUSE/IQUE brings LA’s best musicians and vocalists together to explore how […]
