Mr. Pim Passes

Theatre 40 at The Reuben Cordova Theatre
241 Moreno Drive Beverly Hills

This delightful comedy tells of what happens when appealing Mr. Pim, who has much trouble with names, drops in one day. Mr. Pim announces that the former husband of the lady of the house, thought to be deceased, is alive. Since the lady is married now, she is a bigamist. Her present husband is upset no end. Then Mr. Pim passes by again, confessing that he was confused and it is safe to assume that the lady’s first husband is dead, as they originally believed. Without telling her husband, the lady uses the knowledge to get what she wants and to force her husband to permit his niece to marry the young artist who loves her.

Broadway World - Recommended

"...One of Los Angeles' most honored directors, Jules Aaron, directs the new Theatre 40 production of this 99-year old drawing room comedy. And while the plot line may seem a bit simple with just a lot of talking and not much action taking place, Aaron's often modern attitude blocking perks up the production thanks to the skill of his dedicated cast and production team."

Stage Raw - Recommended

"...Under the direction of Jules Aaron, Theatre 40 brings to life Mr. Pim Passes By, a charming comedy written by A. A. Milne, the creator of the much beloved children's story Winnie the Pooh. A heartwarming tale of love in both young and old, it sets out to prove that nothing should get in the way of two people who are meant to be together."

Accessibly Live Off-Line - Recommended

"...MR. PIM PASSES BY can be seen as a curio stage piece of sorts as this play isn't performed as much due to its amount of dialogue spoken, as well as its length! (Theatre 40 took measures of cutting down this pice from its original three acts down to two without missing any of its continuity.) Whatever the case, the production is charming and witty. The humor may not have any belly laughs, but it's still pleasant to witness on the Theatre 40 floorboards."

Theatre Notes - Recommended

"...Under the direction of Jules Aaron, the show strives for a modern pace, but the script is leisurely and may try the patience of a modern audience. Myself? I giggled quite a lot throughout, but never got to guffaw. And though the play is an antique, I am very glad to have seen it."
