New Musical Havana comes to Pasadena Playhouse in 2010

Pasadena Playhouse has announced that it will feature a new musical, Havana, on its 2010 schedule. Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll and Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel) will provide the music, Pulitzer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz (Anna in the Tropics) the book, and Jack Murphy the lyrics.

The story centers on an ambitious North American writer who has inherited a nightclub and home from her aunt in Cuba. She travels to the island to sell them in order to fund her creative ambitions, but a newfound love interest and Havana itself may derail her plans. Sergio Trujillo (choreographer for Jersey Boys and All Shook Up) directs the run scheduled in June 2010.

The season also includes Lerner and Loewe's Camelot to run in January 2010 and a revival of Noel Coward's Fallen Angels in February 2010 that is expected to move to Broadway following its run. In April 2010, the theater will present Sight Unseen, Donald Margulies' Pulitzer Prize-finalist play about an artist's meteoric rise to fame, followed by the world premiere in September 2010 of Frank Tangredi's Pastoral, a look at a female pastor's crisis of faith. A new family musical yet to be named will end the Playhouse season in October 2010.
