An Evening with Marianne Cornetti

Woman and Scarecrow
Woman is dying. With quintessentially Irish wit, she and her mysterious companion Scarecrow consider what she leaves behind and what might have been as she faces the mystery of what is to come. Is that Death lurking in the wardrobe? If you liked Margaret Edson’s Wit, try Marina Carr's lyrical play. Alan Stanford directs Nike Doukas as Woman, Karen Baum as Scarecrow, Sharon Brady as Auntie Ah, and James FitzGerald as Him.

The Winter's Tale
"The Winter's Tale" is BoB's 24th annual Shakespeare production.

Gallery Crawl
The crawl showcases a wide variety of thought-provoking art exhibitions. Live bands, DJs, dance, comedy, film, and participatory activities are also part of the complimentary crawl events. To celebrate a decade of its gallery crawls, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust invites you to Instagram your favorite Gallery Crawl memory using #CrawlPGH by July 18, 2014.

Some Begins
The exhibition evaluates the lives of objects, exploring what it is they radiate through their beings, their material evidence of history, and the miracle of their discovery.

Late Night Cabaret

The Merry Widow
Since its premiere in Vienna in 1905, Franz Lehar's classic has been delighting audiences with its charming melodies and lavish party scenes. The libretto, by Viktor Leon and Leo Stein, follows Hanna, a rich widow, and her countrymen's attempt to keep her money in the principality by finding her the right husband. WQED-FM's Anna Singer returns for a third time as Hanna Glawari in The Merry Widow.

"Gladiator" Live (CANCELED)

The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County
Mark Twain's famous American short story explodes with musical dramatic life in The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. This children's opera captures the authenticity of the original tale, set during the American Gold Rush.

The Fantasticks
The Fantasticks invites audiences to travel on a journey of love discovered, lost, and then rediscovered, with humor and pathos and memorable melodies. But this new production of the world's longest-running musical, in collaboration with Attack Theatre, integrates movement and dance into the tale in a way you've never imagined.
