Join villagers for a dinner at El Torito and followed by The Bluest Eye performance at A Noise Within. Meet LuCinda Haagenson, co-chair of the Cultural Activities Committee, at the Cantina at El Torito at 5 pm to take advantage of their happy hour specials (purchase your own food and drink specials ranging from $4-10 each or order off of the regular menu)
Around 6:45, we'll traverse across the street to A Noise Within theater for the 7:30 adaption of Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye, about 3 young Black girls making sense of love, sisterhood, abuse, and hate. $45 payable to Pasadena Village for ticket. Buy-your-own dinner.
When you register, please indicate if you will join us at El Torito or just plan to attend the 7:30 performance.

About The Bluest Eye at A Noise Within

Pecola Breedlove, a young Black girl in 1940’s Ohio, wants nothing more than to be loved and prays for Shirley Temple’s blue eyes. Enthralling, gorgeously written, and incredibly heartrending, this stunning adaptation of Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winner Toni Morrison’s debut novel centers three young Black girls as they strive to make sense of love, sisterhood, abuse, and hate.
