Conundrum Cabaret: Dogfight
June 9, 2019

Conundrum continued its successful partnership with Lincoln in 2019 with a fully staged reading of Dogfight. This rarely-produced show from the team behind Dear Evan Hansen and The Greatest Showman brought a ton of new talent to Conundrum and proved that a brewery is absolutely the right venue for a musical. 

Thanks again to our partners at Lincoln Beer Company. Look forward to many more productions in this space in 2019 and beyond!

Funny Girl
October 29-November 20, 2016

Conundrum had its first fully-staged production with Funny Girl at the Colony Theater in Burbank. Conundrum partnered with Friends of the Rialto to bring Funny Girl to life for Burbank, Pasadena and Los Angeles audiences. 

This production garnered rave reviews and pulled together incredibly talented performers, musicians and technical professionals to put on a professional production that reached hundreds of audience members. 

New Work:
Death of Jubal
March 12, 2016

The Death of Jubal was Conundrum's inaugural play and our first new work. This full-length tragicomedy by local playwright John Bolen played to a full house at Old Oak Cellars in Pasadena, and introduced a whole new group to Conundrum Theatre Company.

 

This show was a huge hit thanks to our talented creative and production team and all our volunteers.

Night on Broadway was the first time in decades that seven of Broadway's historic theatres were open to the public on the same night - more than 35,000 people came out to celebrate and be part of history!

 

This was not just LA history, but Conundrum history. With only a week of rehearsal and a budget of $100, we were able to put on a professional production - with no tech rehearsal! Thank you again to all who came out or supported us in spirit!!!
