The mission of the wonderfully named Parson’s Nose Productions is to introduce “classic theater to family audiences,” through original one-hour adaptations of dramatic masterpieces. These staged readings are designed to be both smart enough for grownups and boisterous enough for kids. They used to put on shows at Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters, but have recently moved to the Lineage Performing Arts Center on Fair Oaks.
Coming up next week is The Perilous Streets of Pasadena, a relocation of Dion Boucicault’s 1857 melodrama, The Streets of New York, from the Big Apple to the Crown City—with a few adjustments to the character’s names. There’s an evil banker who goes by the name of Bogaard, for example. There will be lots of hissing and cheering.
We’re featuring this show a bit on the early side, as Parson’s Nose shows often fill up fast. Call soon to reserve your seats for the Friday Brownbag or Saturday Soiree show.
