After dazzling audiences in New York and Boston -- and winning the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical revival -- this exciting new staging of Pippin comes to the Pantages. This updated version of the Broadway classic infuses the production with amazing acrobatics and wondrous magical feats, along with the music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz, award-winning composer of Wicked and Godspell. With classic songs "Corner of the Sky," "No Time at All," "Magic to Do" and "Extraordinary," and recreated versions of Bob Fosse's original choreography, this sexy and sophisticated version of Pippin tells the story of the son of Charlemagne, leader of the Holy Roman Empire, who goes on a death-defying journey to find meaning in life. He encounters love, sex, war and politics, and must ultimately choose between a life that's ordinary or a flash of singular glory. Learn More

Talk about a great local "secret"! I'm all about the idea of an organization taking over an unconventional facility to create a one-time unique experience. Avon's Warehouse turned into a stage with a huge screen to watch the documentary, "Girls in the Band", which features women jazz players pioneering what is still predominantly a men's industry. And afterwards some of the women from the documentary performed. I am only a casual fan, getting my feet wet in the genre, but I can't imagine how anyone left without being a fan of jazz. As the facility host of the event, we all walked away with Avon freebies afterwards as well.
This was cultural learning experience, and would make a great date for anyone gay or straight. The audience trends to older white folks, and you definitely want to dress a little more business casual, but with Goldstar's rate, it was very affordable. And the audience was progressive minded, boo'ing and aww'ing at all the right moments on behalf of women/minority rights.
A very grassroots operation feel, which I love, The organizer Muse/ique puts on multiple events a season through a series called Uncorked, which features different genres of music all in the Pasadena/LA area. I'm definitely keeping my out for the future ones. They'll also have a summer series, which I imagine is like CalPhil or Pasadena Pops with an intimate feel to it.
