In the Press


"Written over the course of just three days when Noël Coward was a mere twenty-four years of age, Hay Fever remains as delectably entertaining in 2024 as it was a century ago. Check out South Pasadena Theatre Workshop's bubbly revival and you'll see precisely what I mean." - Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA
