Remembering the life of Lars Hansen

Hansen The public is invited to a celebration of the life of Lars Hansen, whose long theater career included overseeing the Pasadena Playhouse and the Theater League Alliance of Southern California. Hansen died Jan. 31 of complications from liver cancer. He was 60.

The celebration will be at 3 p.m. March 14 at the Colony Theatre, 555 N. 3rd St., Burbank. Many of Hansen's personal and professional friends will sing some of his favorite songs.

"Lars offered many years of diligent service to the Los Angeles theater community, and was for some time a vital supporter of a number of valuable companies in our city, including the playhouse," Sheldon Epps, Pasadena Playhouse artistic director, said in Hansen's obituary by The Times' Valerie Nelson.
