Daniel Pearle’s acclaimed play about a mother and father trying to do right by their son is a study of intimacy and parenthood, and the fantasies that accompany both. On the eve of the admissions cycle for New York City kindergartens, Alex and Greg have high hopes for their son Jake, a precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to G.I. Joe. But as the process continues, Jake's behavior becomes erratic and perplexing, and other adults in his life start to wonder whether his fondness for dress-up might be cause for concern. Sept. 28 thru Nov. 3; IAMA Theatre Company in a Pasadena Playhouse guest production at the Carrie Hamilton Theatre Theatre, 39 S. El Molino Ave., Pasadena CA 91101; $30; 323-380-8843; iamatheatre.com
