The Pasadena Playhouse will be presenting FOUR BY TENN: A TENNESSEE WILLIAMS READING SERIES in celebration of Tennessee Williams. The series will feature four of Williams’ best known plays to be read each Monday for four weeks beginning Feb. 27 at the Playhouse. Actors Alison Pill and Thomas Sadoski of HBO’s The Newsroom and director Jessica Kubzansky, Co-Artistic Director of Boston Court will launch the series this upcoming Monday with Night of the Iguana. (See the full schedule below.)
These readings are meant to tie-in with The Pasadena Playhouse’s current celebration of Tennessee Williams and its inaugural PlayWorks development production entitled GOD LOOKED AWAY, starring Al Pacino and Judith Light. The new play is an ode to Williams at the end of his career. During the run of GOD LOOKED AWAY, patrons can also visit the theater’s Georgia T. McClay Friendship Center to see the free exhibit celebrating the life of the great playwright Tennessee Williams.
