The Pasadena Playhouse is one of Pasadena's treasures, and now it's shuttered. Chronic financial problems. Hopefully they can reorganize their debt and reopen.
In recent years they were doing a good job with outreach to the community. They had great programs for kids. But the plays that were produced were sometimes hit or miss. If you were a subscriber, you didn't know if you were going to get world class theatre, or walk out holding your nose.
Please know, however, that the community is rooting for the Playhouse to make a comeback. We need you!
Pros: Beautiful old theatre, historically significant
Cons: Closed and declared bankruptcy
