Belleville

Pasadena Playhouse
39 S. El Molino Ave. Pasadena

From Amy Herzog, the award-winning author of 4000 Miles (a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama), comes Belleville, which follows a young American expat couple living in a trendy Parisian neighborhood. Their life seems lovely, but beneath the surface of Zack and Abby's enviable marriage, unrest simmers. Hailed by The New York Times as "thrillingly good," this chilling psychological drama asks unsettling questions about whether you can ever really "know" another person. Starring Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect, True Blood) and Thomas Sadoski (Life in Pieces, The Newsroom), this modern Hitchcock-style drama will keep you on the edge of your seat at The Pasadena Playhouse.

Thru - May 13, 2018



Price: $45-$65

Show Type: Drama

Box Office: 626-356-7529

Los Angeles Times - Somewhat Recommended

"...Still, the production seizes our attention with the slippery intrigue. It's never clear how far the play is going to veer into "Psycho" territory. (Warning: Abby and Zack spend a fair amount of time in the bath and shower.) The uncertainty makes us squirm all the more."

Stage and Cinema - Somewhat Recommended

"...Itís a credit to director Jenna Worsham that the intimate show works as well as it does in the large Pasadena Playhouse, but even as she keeps our attention, she doesnít always seem as concerned with beats and pace, which perhaps is why the ending leaves a bad taste in our mouth."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Young marrieds don't get much more appealing than Americans in Paris Abby and Zack, but don't let their Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks looks and charm fool you into thinking Amy Herzog's Belleville will be the next big romcom. What the Obie-winning Pulitzer Prize finalist has up her sleeve in Belleville is something considerably darker and more twisted, just one reason the latest from the Pasadena Playhouse is one of the season's must-see productions."

On Stage Los Angeles - Somewhat Recommended

"...Promised twists and turns with what felt to me like Neil Simon taking a sharp turn to the left down a one way alley were only slightly forthcoming. Subtle sex scenes and why Zach, who supposedly is in Paris to do his work as a medical doctor with les enfants avec les AIDS is at home and caught in a compromising activity when Abby arrives unexpectedly has moments, but the story all together is mostly inconsequential."

Stage Raw - Somewhat Recommended

"...Herzog's script is cannily constructed, and the characters are sketched in acid. But both Anna and Zach are so dishonest, morally compromised, and unpleasant that it gets harder and harder to care about them. When the combat turns toward actual violence, one wishes it had come sooner. And the endlessly protracted ending becomes seriously exasperating."
