Benedum Center for the Performing Arts
Star of the TLC show The Long Island Medium, Theresa Caputo is taking her show on the road making live appearances at various theaters across the country, hitting the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh , PA , showing for one date only on 22 Apr 2016! Similar to her popular TLC series, Long Island Medium, Theresa will be doing super-sized group readings, hopefully connecting attendees with the spirits of their passed loved ones, along with sharing some of her personal stories about being a medium in her usual quirky style. Not to mention style tips for that hair and those nails! In addition, Theresa will share personal stories about her unique and fascinating life balancing the unpredictable nature of her gifts while maintaining her role as a typical Long Island wife and mom. ALL About Theresa Theresa in her blog claims that she has experienced spirit contact since the age of four but only connected with them in her 20s when recovering from an anxiety disorder. With seemingly nowhere else to turn to after multiple therapists, her mother decided to take her to a spiritual healer. This, she says, allowed her to open up her "chakras" and "release the spirit's energy" through words. - See more at:

12 Peers Theater
With no director, no set, and a different guest performer each night, this play is performed by distinct local actors reading a script they see for the first time as they step onstage in front of a live audience. Using a menagerie of allegorical animals, the play is “not about Iran,” but grapples with the social phenomena of power, obedience, and manipulation. Will you participate? Will you be manipulated? Will you listen? Will you really listen?

Point Park University - Pittsburgh Playhouse
Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Annie Baker’s The Flick peeks behind the curtain of a run-down movie theatre as three lowly ushers mop spilled soda, sweep popcorn kernels, and tend to the day-to-day, humdrum workings of one of the Northeast’s last non-digital venues. Tender and clever, Baker’s dialogue brilliantly captures the ennui of the underpaid, underemployed young people.

Byham Theater
It's 1959, and Rydell High School's senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school "Burger Palace Boys" are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking "Pink Ladies" are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers' age-old desire to be rebellious, provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still get make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy's romance, through such hit songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "We Go Together", and "Mooning", recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Starting off with an eight-year Broadway run, Grease is among the world's most popular musicals and has a cult-like following, especially among teens!
