Founder, Artistic Director and CEO, Natalia Lazarus, along with Managing Director Danette Garrelts are making plans to improve The Promenade Playhouse, with some major renovations to the interior as well as looking ahead to an exciting Fall, Winter and Spring line-up. The improvements include new and additional seating, new carpet, and new lighting equipment. The main donor is a client of the Conservatory and wishes to remain anonymous.

THE PROMENADE PLAYHOUSE SEASON WILL PRESENT A SERIES ON HOW ART AND THEATRE MEET

A PICASSO by Jeffrey Hatcher - Opening Sept. 25th - Oct. 4th, 2015

The poignant production of "A PICASSO" will return to Los Angeles for a limited engagement, presented by The Promenade Playhouse. Starring Natalia Lazarus and well-known French actor, Charles Fathy and is produced and directed by Steven Ullman and Natalia Lazarus. Opening in English on September 25th to October 3rd. There will be one special performance, in French, which will close out the limited run on October 4th, 2015.

A true psychological cat-and-mouse game psychological thriller. Picasso needs to save his art from being destroyed in a bonfire and Mademoiselle Fischer, ostensibly a Nazi, but really a Jewess, needs "a" Picasso to save her life.

The company has also vowed to produce the play in French, and will perform in Paris, France, in the early winter of 2015; and then in Spanish, when Lazarus will take the Production to Mexico and Spain, in 2016.
