Of Mice and Men Tickets—See a classic with a twist

Plenty of drama fans are familiar with John Steinbeck’s classic, Depression-era play “Of Mice and Men.” But the Pasadena Theater isn’t content to serve up the same, old story. Adapting it to reflect on modern experiences in America, this version of the story transforms George and Lennie, the two main characters, into migrant Mexican workers involved in the bracero program.

Of Mice and Men Tickets—About the show

The original story focused on two migrant laborers named George and Lennie looking for work in California. Both dream of making enough money to settle down somewhere and run a ranch. The simple-minded Lennie can only imagine raising and petting dozens of soft, furry rabbits. His gentle nature has gotten them in trouble before, when Lennie stroked a young woman and was accused of rape. Run out of town, they seem to be safe—for now.

Of Mice and Men Tickets—More info

Little has changed in the Pasadena Theater’s adaptation of the play. Its set just a few years after the original, when Mexican braceros traveled north to fill jobs left vacant by men helping with the war effort. There are a few phrases in Spanish, but otherwise the dialogue is intact. The unique adaptation takes an old story and places it out of its element, jarring the audience into making new connections. Don’t wait for “Of Mice and Men” tickets to run out. Get theater tickets today!
