 Lineage Performing Arts 
Center is proud to present a 
re-imagined Pippin - a fully 
staged musical taking place 
in Pasadena throughout the 
month of May. Along with 
the magic and mystery of 
the stage musical Pippin, 
the Lineage dancers and a 
talented cast of singers and 
actors bring new excitement 
to the show with fresh 
choreography, site specific 
surprises and inspiration for 

 Originally presented on 
Broadway with Director Bob 
Fosse, Pippin offers a wistful 
and timeless story of coming 
to terms with the significance 
of a single life in the midst of 
life’s trials and tribulations. 
Pippin’s journey and search 
for meaning highlight such 
beloved songs as Corner of 
the Sky and Morning Glow. 
The plot of Pippin turns on 
the mysterious “show within 
a show” that leaves audiences 
on the edge of their seat until 
the compelling finale. As 
Pippin’s search for purpose 
and direction develop he 
declares, “If I’m never tied to 
anything, I’ll never be free.”

 The show is highly 
interactive, and as part of 
the fun, the audience will 
move from space to space, 
exploring the theatre, the 
courtyard and a beautiful 
jewel of a chapel for an 
authentic experience of site-
specific theatre.

 Drawing from the talent of 
Los Angeles, Pippin features 
an acclaimed cast, including 
Jana Souza as the Leading 
Player, KJ Rasheed as 
Charlemagne, Paul Siemens 
as Pippin, Marisa Echeverria 
as Catherine, Cynthia 
Crass as Berthe, Elizabeth 
Gracen as Fastrada and Will 
Bellaimey as Lewis.

 The nonprofit Lineage 
Dance, and the Lineage 
Performing Arts Center 
are dedicated to making 
the arts accessible to all 
– both as performers and 
audience members. As part 
of the Pippin performances, 
Lineage is honored to 
include members of our 
“Dance for Joy” classes for 
persons with neurological 
challenges, and a choir of 
outstanding voices of all 
ages. Under the musical 
direction of Alan Geier, 
and co-directed by Hilary 
Thomas and Rob Lewis, the 
production is pure magic. 
Join us!

 Pippin, presented by the 
Lineage Performing Arts 
Center, is supported in part 
by the City of Pasadena Arts 
and Culture Commission, 
City of Pasadena Cultural 
Affairs Division. All 
performances take place at 
the First United Methodist 
Church, 500 E. Colorado 
Blvd. Parking available off of 
Green St. Tickets $20-$35.

Pet of the 

Osze (A469807) and Guerro

them they were going on a 
Foster Field Trip! Handsome 
father and son started the 
outing with a lunch date, 
where they impressed the 
restaurant staff and guests 
with their impeccable 
manners. The ladies window 
shopped while Osze and 
Guerro enjoyed social 
sniffing and people watching 
before heading to the park. 
Both boys loved the Spring 
air, fresh grass smells and 
meeting new friends, furry 
AND human. These polite 
pups came back to PHS and 
promptly sent thank you 
notes to their foster friends 
for the amazing day out.

Playhouse: Play 'Good Boys'


 Pasadena Playhouse, the 
State Theater of California, 
announces the Los Angeles 
premiere of Roberto 
Aguirre-Sacasa’s Good Boys, 
directed by Carolyn Cantor. 
The production is Aguirre-
Sacasa’s fresh and revisited 
look at his previous work, 
Good Boys and True (world 
premiere, Steppenwolf 
Theatre Company), and 
will play from Wednesday, 
May 29 through Sunday 
June 23; the press opening 
is June 2 at 5:00pm. The 
play is a riveting drama set 
at a private prep school – 
involving a model student 
in the mold of his father, a 
disturbing video tape, and 
the privileged family that is 
faced with difficult choices. 

 Agiurre-Sacasa has the 
unusual distinction of being 
a playwright (Manhattan 
Theatre Club, 2econd 
Stage, Steppenwolf Theatre 
Company, South Coast 
Rep), television writer 
(Glee, Supergirl, Riverdale, 
Chilling Adventures of 
Sabrina) and Marvel Comics 
author (The Stand, Spider-
Man). He is also the Chief 
Creative Officer of Archie 

 In Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s 
Good Boys, Brandon Hardy, 
a senior at St. Joseph’s Prep, 
has the world at his feet. He 
is handsome, athletic, smart, 
and a shining example of 
the perfect private school 
student, just like his father 
was. But when a disturbing 
videotape becomes the 
talk of the locker room, 
the comfortable lives of 
the Hardy family threatens 
to shatter. Good Boys is a 
riveting drama that explores 
what happens when a family 
must separate fact from 
fiction—and, ultimately, 
choose to either preserve 
their legacy or risk losing 
everything in pursuit of the 

 Aguirre-Sacasa says, “The 
dramatic situations in this 
play are uncannily similar 
to incidents and issues that 
we’re still grappling with in 
this country—viscerally—
even more so than when 
I first wrote Good Boys. 
In revisiting the play, I 
further explored themes 
like privilege, masculinity, 
and personal responsibility, 
as Brandon and Elizabeth 
find themselves on trial by 
their community and each 
other. Good Boys is a sort 
of ‘moral thriller,’ a game 
of cat and mouse between 
a mother and her son, with 
twists and turns that will 
keep you guessing about the 
truth right up to the end.”

 Tickets available online at, by 
phone at 626-356-7529, and 
in person at the Playhouse 
Box Office, 39 South El 
Molino Ave.
