LOS ANGELES -- The Pasadena Shakespeare Company's third show of its 1998 season will be George Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man. The production will be directed by Jane Macfie.
The romantic comedy, set in Bulgaria in 1885, features the character of Captain Bluntschli, who would rather make love than war. He meets his match in Raina, the spoiled daughter of a wealthy Bulgarian. Things are complicated by the presence of her fiance, and his attraction to Raina's maid, Louka.
The PSC is located in Suite 296 of the Plaza Pasadena Mall, in the 300 East Block of Colorado Boulevard. Free parking is in the garage on the southeast corner of Euclid and Green.
Arms and the Man opens on Friday, June 19, and the show runs through July 19, with performances at 8 PM Friday and Saturday, and 3 PM Sunday. Tickets are $17 for general admission and $14 for students, seniors and members of actors' unions. For information, call (626) 564-8564.
