The past couple weeks I’ve been working on a production of Smokey Joe’s Café at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, California. Directed by Jeffrey Polk, this production used the 2004 scenic design by Gary Wissman, and costumes by Sharell Martin. The show is one of the most raucous parties I’ve ever seen – from the first moments after the house lights fade to the last note, this cast really brings down the house. This is one production not to be missed. Photo by Kevin Berne.
