The L.A. Times reports that "The Mountaintop" posed a scheduling conflict for Bassett:
... Bassett's commitment to the New York drama means that she will have to withdraw from the Pasadena Playhouse's planned fall production of the play "Pastoral," by Frank Tangredi.
"Pastoral" was originally scheduled to have its world premiere at the Pasadena Playhouse in November, with Bassett in the lead role as a pastor facing multiple crises.
Sheldon Epps, the artistic director of the playhouse, said in an email that the company leaders are "examining our options and may adjust our production schedule so that Angela can do the play with us in the future. I do of course wish her great success with the Broadway production."
