Furious Saddened by Pasadena Playhouse Closingposted by Nick Cernoch at 2:03 PM
Furious Theatre Company is deeply saddened to hear the news about the closing of the historic theatre that has generously given us a home for over 5 years. Our relationship with Pasadena Playhouse has done amazing things for our company, and we'll be eternally grateful for our time here as part of the Playhouse family. Our sympathies go out to our friends on the Playhouse staff who are losing their jobs. Although this news presents some immediate challenges for our organization, we are determined to continue with our current season as planned. We are moving forward with our upcoming production of Jason Wells' MEN OF TORTUGA and will explore all options to keep its February 20 opening on schedule in the Carrie Hamilton Theatre. Furious is aware that the current situation will present obstacles but it is our hope that the generous support we have received from our patrons and donors will continue to be there to lift us up in what is sure to be a greater time of need. While it is uncertain where our company will be producing in the future we remain committed to bringing "furious" theatre to Los Angeles audiences.
