The Pasadena Playhouse stages the new musical Mask, which is inspired by the 1985 film.



Richard Maltby Jr. directs the show penned by the picture's screenwriter Anna Hamilton Phelan (book), Barry Mann (music) and Cynthia Weil (lyrics).

"Mask is a musical based on the true story of an unusual looking boy and his unconventional biker mother. She shows him how to embrace life. He shows her how to choose it."

Allen E. Read stars as Rocky with Michelle Duffy as Rocky's mom Rusty, Greg Evigan ("My Two Dads," Jesus Christ Superstar) as Gar and Michael Lanning as Dozer.

Here is a look at the production:
