About Pasadena Playhouse

Pasadena Playhouse was an instant hit when it opened in 1925 and enjoyed many successful years. However, it started to lose its luster in the 1960s and went dark in 1969, and stayed that way until it was resurrected in 1986 and again became a top performing arts venue. The Pasadena Playhouse features a year-round schedule of six plays with more than 275 performances annually. Some of the upcoming plays include Purlie, Tea at Five and Open Window.

Financial issues closed the Pasadena Playhouse in 2010. The curtain rose again Oct. 12, with the first of two fall productions designed to jump-start the Playhouse’s comeback and repay $1.2 million owed to 2010 season subscribers for five cancelled productions.

“FDR,” starring Ed Asner was the opening drama, followed by actress/singer Leslie Uggams in “Uptown Downtown,” the story of her life and career told through music, which will run through Sunday. Las Vegas Coupons offered discounts to similar productions based at some of the top resorts on the strip.

Sheldon Epps, the Playhouse’s long-time artistic director, called the successful fund-raising effort “evidence of the extraordinary community backing” for the theater.
