Quick Takes

Playhouse sets '10 season

July 24, 2009|David Ng

A new musical from Pulitzer Prize winner Nilo Cruz and a new play from Frank Tangredi will topline the Pasadena Playhouse's 2010 season, it was announced Thursday. The new season will consist of six main-stage productions, the same number as the current season.

"Havana," which begins previews in June, features a book by Cruz and songs by Frank Wildhorn and Jack Murphy. The musical, to be staged by Sergio Trujillo, tells the story of Natalie, a North American writer who has inherited a nightclub and home from her aunt. The heroine travels to Cuba to cash in on her inheritance but soon finds herself drawn to the exotic capital city and a new love interest.

Tangredi's "Pastoral," a new play set to begin previews in September 2010, follows the spiritual journey of Pastor Emily Brendel, who lives on Long Island with her teenage son. Rounding out the season will be revivals of Lerner & Loewe's "Camelot" (January), Noel Coward's "Fallen Angels" (February), and Donald Margulies' "Sight Unseen" (April), directed by Playhouse associate artistic director Damaso Rodriguez. The Playhouse said that it anticipates "Fallen Angels" to transfer to Broadway after its February-March engagement.

Closing the season will be a new family musical, which will be announced later. Previews for the final production will begin in mid-October 2010.
