The Pasadena Shakespeare Company and Fremont Centre Theatre have announced that the PSC will present its 2000 season at the Fremont Theatre Centre in south Pasadena. The PSC is losing its present home at the Plaza Pasadena Mall due to impending renovations.
PSC's first production will be King Lear, Shakespeare's classic tragedy of a stubborn, vain old ruler who loses everything because of his blindness to the presence of true love and loyalty. The modern-dress production is directed by Scott Rabinowitz and will run from Feb. 11-March 12, 2000.
The other shows on PSC's schedule include She Stoops To Conquer, by Oliver Goldsmith, directed by Dana Marley-Kolb (June 2-July 9); The Merchant of Venice, directed by guest director Michelle Truffault, the former artistic director of S.F. Rep Theatre (July 29-Sept. 3); and Henry IV, Part One, staged by PSC artistic director Gillian Bagwell (Nov. 17-Dec. 17).
PSC will also present Kaufman & Hart's You Can't Take It With You at a location to be announced, in April & May. The production will be directed by David Paul Needles.
The FCT is located at 1000 Fremont Ave. For tickets and information call (626) 441-5977 or visit website at: fremontcentretheatre.com -- By Willard Manus
