Announcing Our 2024/2025 Season

Pasadena Playhouse looks toward the 100th anniversary of its building in 2025 with a new season. Producing Artistic Director Danny Feldman announces the Mainstage offerings for the 2024/2025 Season including Martin Crimp’s critically acclaimed new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac; a fresh new revival of  Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein’s Tony Award® winner for Best Musical, La Cage aux Folles;  a new production of Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning classic, Topdog/Underdog; and a new play to be announced at a later date. 

New for the Playhouse in the 2024/2025 Season will be a Special Theatrical Event at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium:  Anything Goes in Concert, starring Jinkx Monsoon (RuPaul’s Drag Race) as Reno Sweeney and Follies in Concert with two back-to-back weekends of performances.

Season packages, which include the four Mainstage productions and one concert, are now on sale. Creative teams and casting will be announced at a later date. 

In January 2025, the Playhouse will also present The Next Stage Immersive Summit 2025 in partnership with The Immersive Experience Institute, the main service organization for immersive theater artists. The premiere gathering of creators of immersive art & entertainment will draw international guests from the fields of performing arts, themed entertainment, XR, and gaming. This is the largest gathering of its kind in the world

“We are thrilled to begin our celebration and honor one of the most iconic buildings in the history of the American Theater as it turns 100 years old with a bold and thrilling season of iconic theater” said Danny Feldman. “Our historic stage will feel alive with a sizzling new adaptation of one of the greatest plays of all time, Cyrano de Bergerac, a fresh revival of the celebrated musical La Cage aux Folles, a new production of Suzan-Lori Park’s masterpiece Topdog/Underdog, and an exciting new play to be announced at a later date

Our celebration is so big, it extends beyond the historic walls of our theater. Like the expansion in our current season of new professional children’s theater productions off campus, next season we return with another musical venture to the Pasadena Civic Auditorium for two back-to-back weekends of grand concert events featuring two of the most enduring musicals of all time: Anything Goes starring the singular talent Jinkx Monsoon and Follies, an encore to our recent Sondheim Celebration. These special theatrical events will expand our initiative exploring classic American musicals with our community. ”
