I had the pleasure of seeing one of my favorite actors, Frank Langella, play the lead in The Father on Broadway several years ago so was familiar with this fabulous play. Alfred Molina's interpretation was more affable and therefore easier to...continued

Well acted, interesting premise. Subject matter may not be suitable for all.

A well done production of a play that effectively dramatizes dementia, but doesn't really resonate with any larger significance.

Alfred Molina was sublime, courageous and heartbreaking. The other actors are not in his league. And the blackouts were abrupt, loud and distracting. Script is fascinating, but needs better support from the direct and supporting cast.

A lot of undeniable talent wasted on a weak story with a obvious plot gimmick. And that means my evening was also largely wasted. The silver lining: it was all done in a fast 90-minute one act.

No joke, one of the best performances I've ever seen in a high-wire act that requires the lead actor to go from ingratiatingly charming to furious to completely broken sometimes all in the same scene. This is a tough play--and a perfect actor to...continued

Alfred Molina was excellent as always. "The Father" hit close to home. Staging was creative way to symbolize his deterioration.
P.S. The theatre was very accomodating.

It is still in previews and needs a bit if tweaking. The pace seemed a bit off. Alfred Molina was very good. The rest of the cast was uneven.

It's a great theatre, and Molina & cast are terrific. The play has its tricks, and once they're worn out, the play drags a bit. Ultimately, though, it felt like we were experiencing the frustration and angst of a patient losing his memory, and...continued

Fabulous play! Outstanding performance by Alfred Molina, from his initial snarky self-assurance tinged with a smidge of self-doubt down to his later shaky vulnerability. Such powerful writing. Highly recommended.

This is a very thoughtful play that suits the Pasadena Playhouse well. Alfred Molina plays a formerly distinguished man who is in the throes of very forgetful dementia. The audience becomes confused along with him, as different scenarios about his...continued

The subject of a man dementia isn’t a cheerful subject but the writing and acting keeps you interested. Alfred Molina is the reason I bought tickets and he never disappoints.
