I attended what was a sad event for me in Pasadena on July 20. It was the "groundbreaking" for the new A Noise Within theater there.
What good fortune for Pasadena and its neighboring communities to proudly have, in about a year, an extraordinary repertory theater that consistently produces outstanding and entertaining "classics." The support for the theater by the Pasadena mayor, City Council and many other members of the Pasadena community was abundantly evident throughout the groundbreaking ceremony.
My wife and I have subscribed to and been entertained by A Noise Within for well over 10 years and are therefore very sad to see it move away from Glendale ("Chapter two of a noisy journey," July 21) where it has been nurtured from its start nearly 20 years ago. Yet we are happy for the theater to finally have the opportunity to perform in an adequate venue — both for the performers and the audience — and have the facilities to continue its high level of outreach to young people.
