Quantum Theatre - Parlor Song

A suburban housing development is home to two friendly couples. But beneath the bland routine of affl uence, their illicit desires and painful memories prompt mysterious occurrences and downright eerie disappearances. Like John Updike, Butterworth compellingly shows us that suburbia breeds its own brands of melancholia and madness.

Are the children haunted by the ghosts? What does the governess see? Is it her own imagination?

Drowning Clowns CD Release Party

Described as psychedelic rock opera, Drowning Clowns’ (husband & wife team Mike Speranzo and Rusted Root’s Liz Berlin collaborating with Crisis Car’s Frank Spadafora, pro skateboarder Evan Smith and others) music is a cataclysmic mix of rock, indie, americana and electro-pop for fan’s of Radiohead, Pink Floyd, PJ Harvey, Bright Eyes, Janes Addiction, Fleet Foxes, Genesis, and Postal Service .  From haunting ballads such as “One Request” to the thunderous anthem “Deep Blue Sea,” “All That’s Covered Over” delivers a sense of controlled chaos that can only stem from the collaboration of musicians with such diverse styles and long standing experience.  

Drowning Clowns have created an album that delivers a universal message of adaptation and evolution through this one of a kind musical convergence. The album is an artistic representation of the struggle, growth, challenges and success of developing a business, starting a family and creating a life while being entrenched in the fast-paced music industry. Drowning Clowns' debut album “All That’s Covered Over” is a labor of love from a collaborative of Pittsburgh’s most gifted musicians.

Come out and celebrate years in the making with a free show held by the Mr. Smalls family.

The other bands performing include special guests Broken Fences, Jazzam, The Big Bend, Phat Man Dee and more!

The Moth StorySLAM

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.

Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.

Moth stories dissolve socio-economic barriers, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome challenges and see with new eyes.

Aquila Theater Presents Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

Shakespeare’s funniest and most charming comedy, Twelfth Night is a tale of romance and mistaken identity featuring shipwrecks, duels, disguises and intrigue. This modern productionoffers a remarkable original musical score, innovative design and unique physical approach.Even the most novice theatergoer will be drawn into this daring mystery.

Aquila’s award-winning professional actors promise to thrill and enchant all ages. The performances of Aquila Theatre's cast of Twelfth Night speak volumes about the greatness of the New York-based British theatre company. 

Since its establishment in London in 1991, Aquila Theatre has sought to cement the legacy of classic theatrical productions with "bold reinterpretations of classical plays for contemporary audiences... to free the spirit of the original work and recreate the excitement of the live performance."

One might suggest that it is the Aquila Theatre players who have thrust the greatness they have achieved upon the world; with year-round performances in international festivals and across 70 cities in the U.S. and premier educational theatre workshops, Aquila is a stage force to be reckoned with.
