And @JillSobule is Coming Back to Pittsburgh. Or is She?

Jill Sobule Pittsburgh

  We love Jill Sobule. We’ve interviewed her repeatedly so I’m resisting the urge to say “hey Jill Sobule how about an(other) interview?” although I guess I just sort of did. Note: I just reread my interviews with her and saw this. So there’s that, Jill Sobule, if you want to do another interview. I’m […]

Pipeline: A Review (Yes, On Closing Day Because It Matters That Much)

Pipeline Pittsburgh

Yesterday, Ledcat and I went to the final performance of Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau at City Theatre.

Review: Pride and Prejudice at Pittsburgh Public Theater

The Pittsburgh Public is staging Kate Hammill’s adaptation of one of the most beloved works of fiction Pride and Prejudice. In a rather madcap take on the games of love, eight actors whirl across the stage tackling at least 14 roles, costume changes, set changes, and more. I enjoyed Pride & Prejudice, but I didn’t love […]

Celebrating Ten Years of Queer Burlesque with the Velvet Hearts

I was thrilled to see another local Velvet Hearts performance scheduled. We’ve been supporters of them over the years. Queer burlesque is special.
