‘Mauritius’ sets the stage in L.A.

Pasadena Playhouse unveils 2008 schedule

Pasadena Playhouse has added the West Coast preem of Theresa Rebeck’s “Mauritius” and the world preem of Matthew Lombardo’s “Looped” to its 2008 sked.

“Mauritius,” which marked the Broadway debut of Rebeck (“Omnium Gatherum”) last October, centers on two half-sisters who vie for the rights to a recently inherited and valuable stamp collection.

Capping off the season, play will run Oct. 17-Nov. 23. Director and cast have yet to be announced.

“Looped,” which replaces the previously announced “Mrs. Warren’s Profession,” marks the reteaming of Lombardo and helmer John Tillinger (“Tea at Five”) at the Playhouse.

Play, which runs June 27-Aug. 3, takes a look at the scandals of Hollywood starlet Tallulah Bankhead as she works on what would be her last film.

The remainder of the previously announced lineup includes “Mask,” a musical incarnation of the 1985 pic (March 12-April 20); John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men” (May 2-June 8); and tuner “Vanities” (Aug. 22-Sept. 28).
