"Intimate Apparel"/Pre-sh­ow event "Pretty @ the Playhouse"-AND 1/2 price tix!

This award winning play has an unusual, intriguing story, and the Pasadena Playhouse is a beautiful, comfortable, well equipped theater.


Before the November 14 performance of Lynn Notage's INTIMATE APPAREL, attend The Pasadena Playhouse's ladies night, PRETTY AT THE PLAYHOUSE. Shop at Le Fashion Truck -  LA hottest mobile boutique, partake in sparkling wine, hors d'oeuvres and take home a PRETTY AT THE PLAYHOUSE  gift bag.  Festivities will begin at 7:00pm.  Thanks to MSK member Jewel Moore for putting the pre-show event together!





In Intimate Apparel, the time is 1905 in New York City and Esther, a middle-aged, black seamstress, has learned to make ends meet by teaching herself to sew beautiful and delicate lingerie for her uptown and downtown clientele. After nearly two decades of loneliness and watching the younger and prettier girls come and go in the boarding house she rents from, Esther finds solace and possible romance in letters from George, a handsome, young Caribbean man working on the Panama Canal.

Re-energized by his affectionate words, but hindered by illiteracy, Esther confides in two of her patrons, Mrs. Van Buren, a rich white socialite, and Mayme, a prostitute, to pen her letters back to George. Meanwhile, Esther’s heart also seems to lie with Mr. Marks, the Hasidic shopkeeper who relishes in sharing his exquisite finds of satins and silks and has also grown increasingly fond of Esther. But the impossibility of their match is obvious to them both, so Esther settles for a marriage to George.

He subsequently manages to frivolously spend all of her life savings on whores and liquor – dashing all of Esther’s hopes of opening a beauty salon. Once again penniless and alone, Esther reluctantly returns to her sewing machine to refashion her dreams from the cloth of her life’s experiences.

Intimate Apparel
is the winner of the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play.

    FYI Ladies, if anyone is pondering having dinner before the play I recommed the new BJ's Restaurant located at Colorado and Marengo. The interior is elegant and the service both times that I went was very good. I the food was perfect too.

      I hope you can make it too! Keep in mind that the play doesn't start until 8:00, so even if you can get there in time to hang out, check out the festivities, etc., maybe you can make it in time for the start of the show? Anyway, hope you can join us, looking forward to meeting you.
