A Noise 
'A Tale of 
Two Cities'

 PerformingSeptember 3 throughNovember 19. 

 A Noise Within (ANW) 
presents the first production 
of its 26th season, the United 
States premiere of Tony-
winner Mike Poulton’s thrilling 
adaptation of A Tale of Two 
Cities by Charles Dickens, 
directed by co-producing 
artistic directors Julia 
Rodriguez-Elliott and GeoffElliott, performing September 
3 through November 19. 

 A Tale of Two Cities’ 
opening lines are among the 
most famous in all Western 
literature: “It was the best of 
times, it was the worst of times 
… it was the spring of hope, 
it was the winter of despair.” 
More than 200 million 
copies of the book have been 
purchased – making it the 
second bestselling single-
volume of all time (the first is 
Cervantes’ Don Quixote, the 
basis of ANW’s spring 2017 hit 
Man of La Mancha).

 Julia Rodriguez-Elliott 
said, “Poulton has given the 
theatre a bold, fast-paced 
adaptation. He breathed new 
life into the classic novel, a 
taut political thriller that feels 
so immediate, so exciting, so 
theatrical, and so wonderfully 
alive for audiences. It’s a 
roller coaster of romance and 
adventure, without losing the 
rich characterizations and 
Dickens’ eloquent language.” 

Tickets for A Tale of Two Cities, 
starting at $25, are available 
online at 
and by phone by calling 626356-
3100. A Noise Within 
is located on the corner of 
Foothill Boulevard and Sierra 
Madre Villa Avenue at 3352 
East Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, 
CA 91107, just north of the 
Madre Street exit off the 210. 

Pet of the 

Friendly Blue (A418298) 
is a 3-year-old shorthair 
kitty. Blue can be a bit shy 
when he first meets you, but 
he quickly warms up. After 
nibbling on some kitty 
treats, he loves affection and 
rolls over for pets. Blue’s fun 
personality really shines 
when he’s playing with cat 
toys. If you are looking for a 
mellow yet playful kitty, ask 
about Blue. 

 The adoption fee for cats 
is $75. All cats are spayed 
or neutered, microchipped,

 After pulling the issue from 
their last meeting agenda, the 
city council is set Monday 
night to vote to have Pasadena 
City Manager Steve Mermell 
enter into a contract with 
DKS Associates for consultant 
services for the Union Street 
Two-way Protected Bikeway 
(Cycle Track) Project for an 
amount not to exceed $999,714 
according to the city’s staff 

The designated bikeway from 
Wilson Ave to Arroyo Parkway 
would be located on the south 
side of the street. DKS services 
would include environmental 
documentation, preliminary 
engineering, preparation of 
plans, specifications, estimate, 
right-of-way and public 

 “Prior to the development 
of design the DKS Team will 

address all safety and ADA 
concerns identified by the 
public. There will be three 
outreach phases: the first will 
reintroduce the project and 
solicit input, the second will be 
to present and solicit input on 
sixty percent design, and the 
third phase will be to present 
and solicit input on ninety 
percent design.”

 Residents in the area have 
already expressed concerns over 
removing lanes and parking on 
Union Street; currently Union 
is a one way street. Pasadena 
Department of Transportation 
Director Fred Dock said that 
parking would be evaluated 
block by block. According to 
a staff report in November the 
project would remove 21 parking 
spaces, most, 14, of which are in 
the Central Playhouse District. 

 The council will also, Monday 
night, vote to accept a grant for

County toEstablish a 
Public SafetyCommission 

On a motion by Supervisors 
Kathryn Barger and Janice 
Hahn, last week, the Board 
of Supervisors voted 3-0, 
with Supervisor Mark 
Ridley-Thomas abstaining, 
to establish a “Blue Ribbon 
Commission on Public Safety” 
to explore innovative solutions 
to criminal justice challenges 
resulting from statewide 

 “Working together, this 
vital commission will help us 
achieve our goal of delivering 
meaningful treatment 
programs as well as enhancing 
public safety,” said Supervisor 
Barger. “This is not just about 
the tragedy of losing Officer 
Boyer or Sergeant Owen, it’s 
also about the many young 
lives lost due to drug addiction 
who are not receiving the help 
they need and deserve.” 

 “This is not a referendum 
on voter-approved statewide 
criminal justice reforms,” 
said Supervisor Hahn. “This 
will be a conversation about 
the mechanics of making 
the reforms we do have 
work better and improving 
outcomes for both formerly 
incarcerated individuals and 
public safety.”

 The motion builds on a 
previous motion unanimously 
approved by the Board on 
February 21, 2017 which was 
also authored by Supervisors 
Barger and Hahn. The 
February motion requested 
a report on the murder of 
Whittier Police Officer Keith 
Boyer by a “Post Released 
Supervised Person,” including 
an historical analysis of the 
gunman’s involvement with 
the state parole system, his 
probation supervision, as 
well as recommendations for 
policies and procedures to 
help identify risk factors and 
ensure the highest level of 
public safety.
