Christmas in the Castle Green

Christmas in the Castle Green

December means more in Pasadena than fake snow and Old Town mobs — it means it’s time for the seasonal open house and tour of the historic Castle Green, the building that defines Pasadena almost as much as City Hall. Normally closed to the public, this ornate remnant from the city’s days as a 19th-century [...]

Nutcracker Season Already?

Nutcracker Season Already?

If it’s December, there must be a Nutcracker performance happening somewhere — fortunately, the one running this weekend at Glendale’s historic Alex Theatre is a fine one. A Los Angeles Ballet production, this is an elegant ballet that hews to tradition but is not stodgy. The performance opens here in Glendale, then moves to UCLA’s [...]

Creole Jazz at Caltech

Creole Jazz at Caltech

Everything comes from somewhere. Chickens come from eggs, paper comes from trees, and jazz comes from New Orleans — as do Don Vappie & The Creole Jazz Serenaders. The city’s self-proclaimed “premier classic jazz orchestra” has developed quite a following for its early Creole jazz, as well as for playing the tunes of Jelly Roll [...]

Religion & Art in Southeast Asia

Religion & Art in Southeast Asia

That’s the topic of the day on Sunday at the Norton Simon, and we can think of no better way to spend a post-Thanksgiving Sunday. A staff educator will lead seekers on an exploration of sacred bronze and stone sculpture and their roles in the beliefs, practices and cultures of Buddhism, Hindusim and Jainism. These [...]

It’s Thanks-mas Time Again

It’s Thanks-mas Time Again

Thanksgiving weekend is anon, which in retail land really means it’s Christmas season. So, not surprisingly, Old Pasadena is pulling out all the Christmas stops before you even have a chance to make morning-after turkey hash. The stores, of course, wlll be in full swing Friday morning, but Friday evening is when the formal fun [...]

Holiday Look In

Holiday Look In

Time’s approaching for the 42nd annual home tour to benefit the Pasadena Symphony, and this year is a doozy. On the itinerary is our favorite traditional Colonial in town, a Madison Heights beauty owned by a couple of Pasadena’s pre-eminent artists, as well as a fantasy bungalow island of cottages and bungalows on Bellefontaine owned [...]

Baby it’s a Musical!

Baby it’s a Musical!

Fans of musicals, 1960s R&B and girl groups take note: Newly opened at the Pasadena Playhouse is Baby It’s You, a brand-spanking-new piece of theater that may well be headed for Broadway. Baby is the story of the Shirelles, the first American girl group to have a number-one Billboard single, and of Florence Greenberg, the New [...]

Marla Frazee at Vroman’s

Marla Frazee at Vroman’s

Our favorite hometown children’s book illustrator and author, Marla Frazee, has a marvelous new book out, and she’ll be reading and signing it at Vroman’s on Saturday morning. The Altadena resident partnered with writer Liz Garton Scanlon to create All the World, a graceful, lyrical and gentle read-aloud picture book that celebrates how the whole [...]

Self-Guided Tours, the Arts, and You

Self-Guided Tours, the Arts, and You

Hard times, like the ones we’re in now, are often extra hard for artists, who are usually among the last professional communities to find any evidence of “recovery” in their pockets — which is why the Arroyo Arts Collective’s 17th annual self-guided tour of artists’ studios and homes has been dubbed “The Recovery Discovery Tour.” On [...]

Andre Agassi (!) at Vroman’s

Andre Agassi (!) at Vroman’s

From lion-maned bad boy to bald and beloved tennis icon, Andre Agassi has had quite the journey — which you can read about in his highly anticipated new book, Open: An Autobiography. And after you buy the book, you can get it signed by Andre himself on Thursday at Vroman’s. But only if you bought [...]
