Michael Frayn's Noises Off Returns to Noise Within
Frayn’s joyfully out-of-control British farce features an under-rehearsed and over-worked cast and crew with a penchant for drama more personal than professional, readying themselves for the world premiere of a new play with the auspicious title Nothing On. As the production progresses, the bumbling cast brings down the house – literally.

Bungalow Heaven Offers Up Tours

Visitors can walk through classic Pasadena homes homes and yards during The Bungalow Heaven Neighborhood Association 29th Annual Home Tour, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.

There are demonstrations of Arts and Crafts, Craftsman-type art, and restoration. Window restoration, stained glass, Craftsman furniture and pottery, historic paints with to-the-period colors, and quilting will also be featured,” she said. This year also marks the tour’s first “demonstration of nature” according to Yasin, which will include native plants, home gardens and information on saving the monarch butterfly.

On Thursday, May 3, join the Royce for a special evening with Hoopes Winery for an intimate dinner in the Red Wine Room at The Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse. Sit back and relax as you are led through a 4-course dinner paired with wines carefully hand-selected to complement each dish, with commentary by the winery or winemaker. Hoopes wines are classic Cabs that capture the pure relationship between grape-grower and winemaker with an old-world meets new-world profile. Their philosophy is simple: minimize after-harvest manipulation of the grape so that the drinker can enjoy the most important ingredient in its true form.
