PASADENA, CA (February 2017) – The Pasadena Playhouse (Danny Feldman, Producing Artistic Director) is pleased to announce a new partnership with TodayTix, the theater ticket app, to launch a mobile Rush program for Dotson Rader’s GOD LOOKED AWAY, directed by Robert Allan Ackerman, and starring Al Pacino and Judith Light.
Now, ticket-buyers will be able to purchase Rush tickets on their mobile devices for The Pasadena Playhouse’s inaugural PlayWorks development production on the day of the performance using the TodayTix app. Each day beginning at 9:00 AM, a limited amount of tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Rush tickets will be sold exclusively by TodayTix for $25. To gain access to the Rush tickets, ticket-buyers must download the TodayTix app and unlock the functionality by sharing on their Facebook or Twitter pages. Tickets will be available for pick up at Will Call at The Pasadena Playhouse Box Office one hour prior to the performance. Mobile Rush concludes when inventory has sold out or two hours before the performance.
“This partnership is an exciting, future-focused, and convenient way to provide Rush tickets to GOD LOOKED AWAY,” said Danny Feldman, Producing Artistic Director of The Pasadena Playhouse. “As the State Theater of California, accessibility, inclusion, and innovation are very important to us, and the TodayTix Rush program allows us to bring these things together for the benefit of the community.”
“TodayTix is thrilled to partner with The Pasadena Playhouse to offer $25 mobile Rush tickets to see Al Pacino and Judith Light in GOD LOOKED AWAY,” said Brian Fenty, Chairman and Co-founder of TodayTix. “Making theater more accessible is core to TodayTix’s mission, and it’s an honor to team up with The Playhouse to provide access to affordable tickets with just a few taps of a mobile phone.”
The inaugural PlayWorks development production GOD LOOKED AWAY, stars Tony Award- and Academy Award-winner Al Pacino and two-time Tony Award-winner Judith Light in this seismic story about Tennessee Williams (Pacino), one of America’s most beloved, prolific and flawed playwrights. Resisting the end of his career, Williams works to open his final play in Chicago while his hotel room becomes the setting of a battle between creation and addiction; love and sex; immediate satisfaction and eternal legacy. The new play also stars Takuma Anzai, Kevin Bailey, Garrett Clayton, Andrew Dits, Alexa Hamilton, Eddy Rioseco and Miles Gaston Villanueva. The new play is written by Dotson Rader and is directed by Robert Allan Ackerman (Broadway’s Salome starring Al Pacino).
