Jason Alexander, the actor / voice actor / director / and (of course) comedian, comes to the Pasadena Playhouse on Tuesday, August 28 for an evening of focused discussion.
“In Conversation: Jason Alexander” will give the audience a behind-the-curtain look at “Native Gardens,” a new comedy by Karen Zacarías which Alexander directs.
“Native Gardens” will be performing at the Playhouse September 5 through 30.
In “Native Gardens,” the Playhouse’s much-anticipated Fall comedy, horticultures clash, turning well-intentioned neighbors into feuding enemies.
The play tells the story of Pablo, a rising attorney, and Tania, his very pregnant wife who is also a doctoral candidate. They have just purchased a home next to Frank and Virginia, a well-established D.C. couple with a prize-worthy English garden. They could not feel more welcomed until an impending barbeque for Pablo’s colleagues and a delicate disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out comedic border dispute.
It turns out that good fences don’t always make good neighbors, but they do make for a lot of laughs in this new play.
The cast features acclaimed actors of both screen and stage including Christian Barillas, Academy Award Nominee Bruce Davison, Frances Fisher, Jessica Meraz, Julian Armaya, Joshua Duron and Bradley Roa II.
Alexander is a veteran theater actor and director having worked as Artistic Director for Reprise Theatre Company and countless Broadway productions.
Although best known for his role as George Costanza on “Seinfeld,” his directorial credits like “Everybody Hates Chris” and “Mike and Molly.”
“In Conversation: Jason Alexander” begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10, free for Pasadena Playhouse members. Tickets and membership information are available by calling (626) 356-7529, and at the box office at 39 South El Molino Avenue in Pasadena.
