The People's Light & Theatre Company
"Imagine the Marx Brothers and Tom Stoppard collaborating on a play." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinal) In this innovative comedy by playwright and screenwriter Itamar Moses (Outrage, Boardwalk Empire), seven rival musicians resort to a hilarious battle of wit, bribery, and blackmail to win the most sought-after musical post in Europe. Set in 1722 Leipzig, Germany, "Moses uses an obscure historical incident as a jumping-off point for this funny, fiercely intelligent romp."

The Glass Menagerie in Broadway THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Keystone Repertory Theater
A beautiful and poetic play by the immortal Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie features Southern belle Amanda, past her prime, living with her two grown children. Amanda dreams of a better life for her shy and crippled daughter, so she pushes her son to find a "gentleman caller" for the girl. However, the arrival of the gentleman caller sends shockwaves through the family and causes cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them going. IUP Theater alumnus Derrick Shane ('14) directs this American classic for its 70th anniversary. The Glass Menagerie runs August 7, 8, and 9 at 8:00 p.m. and August 10 at 2:00 p.m. The production will play the Waller Hall Studio Theater. Tickets are available on the IUP Ticket page, and the remaining seats will be sold at the door 45 minutes before the show.

Jesus Christ Superstar in Broadway JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
CONSOL Energy Center
A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is reimagined for the 21st century as an arena rock spectacular. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webbera€™s groundbreaking rock musical now features an extraordinary cast of rock, pop and R&B superstars. Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Tim Rice, who wrote the lyrics, was inspired by the Bob Dylan anthem a€˜With God On Our Sidea€™ which features Judas in its penultimate verse and is from Dylana€™s seminal 1964 album The Times They Are A-Changina€™. As Tim says in his autobiography: a€oeFrom a very young age I had wondered what I might have done in the situations in which Pontius Pilate and Judas Iscariot found themselves. How were they to know Jesus would be accorded divine status by millions and that they would as a result be condemned down the ages?a€
