Pittsburgh Public Theater: Company

January 23 - February 23, 2014

When Company opened in 1970 it swept the Tony Awards and propelled the Broadway musical into a new era. Set in Manhattan, Company features five married couples, three single gals - and Bobby, the only eligible bachelor in the group. Through scenes and songs they celebrate and scrutinize married life and its alternatives. These hilarious, neurotic New Yorkers are ambiguous about their relationship, but the emotional impact of Sondheim's songs - such as "Being Alive," "The Ladies Who Lunch," and "Another Hundred People" - is crystal clear.

February 26, 2014 to March 1, 2014

Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier's Tale)

This intimate community performance is presented as part of A Festival of Sortswinter series with the Pittsburgh Opera’s production of Paul’s Case.

An Iliad

Combining the majestic language of Homer with the informal way we speak today, An Iliad unleashes the thrilling tales of the Trojan War and delves into the psychology of passion and rage, ancient and modern. In this tour-de-force, one actor plays the Greek classic's famous characters Achilles, Hector, Agammemnon, and the beautiful Helen of Troy. Gods such as Athena and Hermes come and go. Colorful and emotionally charged, these accounts look at the impulses that drive people into battle, and ultimately reveal that human nature has not changed much in 2,000 years

Broadway's Next Hit Musical

You suggest the song, they make the musical! Straight from New York City, Broadway’s Next Hit Musical abandons the same old song-and-dance to create a spontaneous evening of music, humor and laughter. The audience votes for their favorite song and watches as the cast turns it into a full-blown improvised musical, complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue and plot twists galore. The New York Times called it “Hilarious!”

Ballet du Grand Theatre de Geneve

Directed by Philippe Cohen, the Geneva Ballet is known around the world for its exquisite dancers and exciting artistic collaborations. The Pittsburgh presentation will also feature the premiere of two major emerging choreographers in the international contemporary dance scene: Andonis Foniadakis and Ken Ossola. Glory, choreographed by Andonis Foniadakis, allows the dancers’ bodies to come together in various modes of symbiosis, either fluid or tense, expansive or minimalistic, which demonstrates the mastery and quality of Handel’s flamboyant music. The hypnotic quality of Sed Lux Permanet, choreographed by Ken Ossola, and its sculpted shadow play enhance the delicate nature of bodies wreathed by the sensitive, ethereal sweetness of Fauré’s Requiem.
