by BWW News Desk - Feb 28, 2018

Pittsburgh Public Theater's new Artistic Director, Marya Sea Kaminski, has assembled a collection of plays - some epic and timeless, others fresh and intimate - that invite us into the idea of home. These characters search for where they belong, who they love, and how they make a place for their families in poignant, hilarious, and sometimes harrowing circumstances. Marya welcomes you into their homes, and into ours: 'I am thrilled to invite Pittsburgh audiences into this season and to continue the Public Theater's legacy of telling a rich variety of stories with some of the most exciting artists working in the American Theater today. My favorite moment in the theater is when the artists and audience finally come together to bring a story to life. That feels like home to me. I look forward to having that experience in Pittsburgh, night after night.'

BWW Review: Intiman's Seething STICK FLY Feels Clunky
by Jay Irwin - Jun 2, 2016

One of the reasons we love a good family drama is it appeals to that voyeur in us all. We love to peek inside someone else's world and see how it compares to our own. But as chaotic and messy as those lives may be they still speak more eloquently and at just the right moments than we could, being scripted and all. And while peeking in on the secrets and lies of the LeVay family in Lydia R. Diamond's “Sticky Fly”, now playing as part of the Intiman Theatre Festival, may be powerful and evocative it also lacked some of that ordered chaos as much of the pacing of the play and the timing of it all felt clunky and unfocused.
