My family and friends and I have been to several shows and we never cease to be amazed by the obvious amounts of creativity and talent shown on the stage. The tickets aren't cheap, but they are definitely worth it.

Been loving going to the Pasadena Playhouse. It is an intimate setting and acoustics are excellent. Watched The Originalist last weekend and it was an excellent production.

We've been annual subscribers to the Pasadena Playhouse for over twenty years. This a very professionally run theater. The productions are generally good, the venue is beautifully restored, and I look forward to each play.

God Looked Away is clearly a benefit production for the Pasadena Playhouse. Billed as a "workshop" it is appalling bad and not ready for an audience, much less one that is paying as much as $200 for ticket. If it's important for you to breathe...More

My wife and I went to see Al Pacino in God Looked Away. This theatre is wonderful. It has the most leg room and best seating angles that I've ever seen (and I've seen many) This is definitely the most comfortable theatre I've ever attended....More
