Theater Is for Sale as Part of Chapter 11 Filing

The Pasadena Playhouse is for sale, following a bankruptcy filing by owners, the firm’s managing general partner said Thursday.

David Houk said Pasadena Playhouse Associates must sell the playhouse buildings and adjoining office complex to repay creditors under a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filed last month. City officials said the property taxes on the facility are unpaid.

The theater is being leased by the nonprofit Pasadena Playhouse State Theatre of California, which stages its own productions.

City officials said the productions will continue.
