Full of old money and yuppies I don't understand how the place is so run down. It's a beautiful old theater with terrible seats, but lots of leg room. They allow drinks inside which makes up for a lot of things. Park on a side street or

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

I just saw a play here last night and it was fantastic! This theatre was gorgeous with historic spanish inspired architecture both inside and out! Small intimate setting but still professionally presented, and great mix of both casual and nicely dressed attire were acceptable. And of course the play was fantastic. Notible actors who performed brilliantly! And the prices were incredible, we got half price tickets a few days before. I can't wait to come see their next play!

Pros: Beautiful Theatre, great actors, great price

I've seen very expensive Broadway-type musicals in the main theater and smaller productions by Furious Theater in the balcony theater, and enjoyed myself both times. It is in a nice area of Pasadena.

The Pasadena Playhouse offers one of the most eclectic, lavishly produced theater seasons in the country. Big-budget musicals, contemporary classics and world premieres make up a typical 6-play season. The theatre was built in 1925 and is designated the State Theater of California. Major Hollywood stars have graced its stage during its long history. For more cutting-edge material, check out Furious Theatre Company on its intimate second stage, The Balcony Theatre.

A very cool venue to see any of the shows during the season. Grab dinner at the Mexican place across the way and walk over to see a show. Spanish style in design, they sell refreshments outside the foyer. I have enjoyed most of the shows at this venue. Look for discounted tickets for students or last minute tickets.

Fantastic venue. Historic site whose stage has seen some of histories most famous actors. Broadway quality productions in an intimate setting at bargain prices.
