39 S. El Molino Ave. Pasadena
Originally produced at the Public Theater in 2018, Teenage Dick reimagines the most famous disabled character of all time, Richard III, as a modern day, 16-year-old outsider in his junior year of high school. Bullied because of his cerebral palsy, Richard is determined to have his revenge and make his name by becoming president of the senior class. This innovative, bold play by Mike Lew, directed by Tony Award nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel, sparks new life into the classic work and reframes the story for today. It continues the Playhouse's purpose, as the State Theater of California, of using our historic stage to bring stories as diverse as our state. A co-production with Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company and Huntington Theatre Company.
