One of the all-time great movie comedians and a silent-film innovator, Buster Keaton comes to life in STONEFACE, starring 3rd Rock from the Sun's French Stewart. With his iconic deadpan expression and pork pie hat, Keaton helped define the cinematic art form -- in between taking some landmark pratfalls -- with classic films like The General and Our Hospitality. But after his meteoric rise, Keaton fell on hard times fueled by his alcoholism. Winner of five L.A. Weekly Theater Awards, including Production of the Year, STONEFACE tells Keaton's inspiring story of redemption through the lens of his films, recreating some of his most memorable gags live on stage.

As usual, the Pasadena Playhouse has given yet another great play. Our seats in the rear balcony was still great. The theater is small enough that even rear balcony seats are good. Parking is across the street and there are food venues all around the theater. There are also food trucks parked curbside.The play itself was well acted by all the actors. It had many stories within a story that was easy to follow. Each actor protrayed their character quite well and believable. Lighting, sound and music was very good. August Wilson wrote 10 of these plays. This is #3 of ten that I've seen. I look forward to seeing the other seven. This is yet another excellent play by Wilson, don't miss out! Enjoy!!
