Community News Top of the News Government Assemblymember Chris Holden “Most Disappointed” As Governor Brown Cuts Promised Funding to the Pasadena Playhouse Published on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 | 6:04 pm Today, Governor Jerry Brown presented his proposed Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget. For the first time in four years Brown projects a state deficit – $1.6 billion from declining revenue – that he proposes to offset with $3.2 billion in budget solutions.Assemblymember Chris Holden released the following statement:I’m most disappointed in the one million dollar one-time cut in funding for the renovation of the Pasadena Playhouse that already passed in Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Budget. This cut is especially deep as the Playhouse, the official State Theater of California, celebrates its 100th Anniversary.The Playhouse has already committed funds they were promised to the renovation project and it is disingenuous of Governor Brown to take it away six months later.This action sets bad precedent for future budget negotiations and breeds public distrust among tax payers.” More Cool Stuff Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe 4 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

The new translation from Christopher Hampton will begin performances on June 22 at Wyndham’s Theatre, where it will run through September 3. Opening night is set for June 27.The full cast from the Menier Chocolate Factory engagement will reprise their performances: Tanya Franks (EastEnders), Alexander Hanson (Stephen Ward, A Little Night Music), Frances O’Connor (Tom & Viv) and Robert Portal (Around the World in 80 Days).This is the second Hampton translation of a Zeller play to head to the West End this year; The Father ended its run at the Duke of York’s Theatre in March, and earned Kenneth Cranham an Olivier Award for his leading performance. The play is also now on Broadway and up for two Tony Awards: Best Play and Best Leading Actor for Frank Langella.The Truth weaves through the relationships of two unfaithful couples and keeps audiences guessing and searching for the truth and their connective thread.
