California Theater Plans Productions After Filing BankruptcyThe Pasadena Playhouse will have a show in January.
A California theater that had to file bankruptcy a year ago recently announced its latest presentation, according to a recent report from the Associated Press.
The wire service said that the Pasadena Playhouse will put on a production of the musical Dangerous Beauty starting in January 2011. The playhouse, where people like Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman walked the boards, had to file bankruptcy because of $2.3 million in debt.
A judge approved the playhouse's plans for bankruptcy this month, and the organization closed its doors in February. The AP report said that unnamed donors provided $1 million for the theater and that a second attempt at raising the same amount is being pursued.
Other productions in the works include Amahl and the Night Visitors, which will be presented by the Intimate Opera Co., while the city's dance theatre plans on performing The Nutcracker Ballet.
All aspects of California's economy have been affected by the recession, from homeowners facing foreclosure to businesses like the playhouse having to declare bankruptcy. Even the state's municipalities are facing the prospect of downsizing services.
