The Company of Pittsburgh to Present [TITLE OF SHOW], 11/7-16
The Company of Pittsburgh concludes its premiere season with the Tony Award-nominated musical [title of show]. Building off the momentum of its critically acclaimed production of Man of La Mancha, The Company takes its turn at deconstructing this quirky, heartfelt musical. The production opens on November 7th at 7:30 pm and runs through November 16th, at the Grey Box Theater in Pittsburgh. It is directed by Associate Artistic Director Nick B. Mitchell, who directed The Company's debut production of The Last Five Years last November.
[title of show] chronicles the trials of self-expression of two New York City theater nobodies, named Hunter and Jeff, who decide to write a completely original musical starring themselves and their two talented actress friends, Susan and Heidi. The musical chronicles the quartets' bittersweet, humorous and challenging journey from inception to opening night. Over the course of their experiences, they learn to be true to themselves and each other, growing closer together as an artistic family and preserving their artistic integrity.
The production stars veteran Pittsburgh musical theater actress, Christine Laitta (I Love You, You're Perfect Now Change, CLO Cabaret) as Susan. Jim Scriven (Dora, the Explorer! Live!) stars as Jeff and Chad Elder (Avenue Q, Stage 62) stars as Hunter. Jodi Gage (Lady Windemere in Lady Windemere's Fan, PICT) rounds out the quartet as Heidi.
The Company's intimate production features musical direction by Douglas Levine, who also appears as the show's onstage pianist Larry, and choreography by Kristiann Menotiades.
Tickets are available starting October 1 by visiting ShowClix and are $20 for adults and $12 for students.
