365 Things To Do In Pasadena welcomes our Guest Author – Ann Dinh!
Pasadena Playhouse presents Dangerous Beauty – A Provocative New Musical:
Dangerous Beauty tells the tale of Veronica Franco, a celebrated courtesan/poet of 16th century Venice.
Forced to become a courtesan when her family fortune is lost, preventing her from marrying the man she loves, Veronica ultimately embraces the courtesan life because it affords her extraordinary education and access.
It is not long before she is the most influential woman in the cultural and political life of her beloved city. As Veronica’s star rises, however, Venice is ravaged by war, plague, and the Inquisition.
When Veronica finds herself on trial for witchcraft, she realizes that only her personal integrity can save her.
