LOS ANGELES -- The Pasadena Shakespeare Company's third show of its 1998 season, George Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man, has been extended a week, to July 26.
Directed by Jane Macfie, the romantic comedy is set in Bulgaria in 1885, and 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 opened June 19, and was scheduled to run through July 19 before the extension. Tickets are $17 for general admission and $14 for students, seniors and members of actors' unions. For information, call (626) 564-8564.
Other plays by Shaw include Pygmalion, Saint Joan and Man and Superman. -- By Michael Farkash
