You’ll blink and it will be gone, so make note of this event at the Pasadena Playhouse!
HAM: A MUSICAL MEMOIR is the brainchild of Tony Award nominee and multi-platinum recording artist Sam Harris. Directed by Ken Sawyer and Billy Porter, it will perform at the Playhouse on three dates only – Saturday, July 9, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday, July 10, at 2 p.m.
HAM is a musical comedy that will take you from a conflicted childhood in Bible-belt Oklahoma to the roller coaster ride of a man in show business and the difficult balancing act of fatherhood. It is based on Harris’ book HAM: Slices of a Life. The musical originally opened Off-Broadway in January of 2015. It later played at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre in January of this year.
“I had the pleasure to see HAM several months ago and I was entertained, delighted, and very moved by the show,” said Sheldon Epps, Artistic Director of The Pasadena Playhouse. “It is a pleasure to welcome Sam to the Playhouse for this special presentation. In song and story, the show wittily and movingly depicts the journey that has created a dazzling performer who so generously shares his gifts with his audiences.”
“I’ve never written or performed anything this personal,” said Harris. “The book, HAM, is stories about my life. The show, HAM, is playing it out – all the characters, the original music, humor and pathos and search that we all go through in our lives — it’s a show for everyone. The Pasadena Playhouse is the dream theater for this show. I couldn’t be more excited.”
Tickets range $27 to $82 and are available online at PasadenaPlayhouse.org, by phone at 626-356-7529 or in person at the box office.
The Pasadena Playhouse is located at 39 South El Molino Avenue, in Pasadena.
