Pittsburgh Playhouse Announces 2017-18 Season Friday, July 7, 2017
A scene from Sweet Charity by the Conservatory Theatre Company
Point Park University's Pittsburgh Playhouse 2017-18 season celebrates the diversity of the theatrical experience with professional and student productions, Pittsburgh premieres, Tony award-winning musicals, edgy new works and fresh takes on classic stories.
"As we move boldly into the future with a new facility on the horizon, this season celebrates all the things we love about theatre: the experiences that take us out of our comfort zone, the launching of thousands of talented student performers' careers and honoring every facet of the craft," said Ronald Allan-Lindblom, artistic director of the Pittsburgh Playhouse. "It's a season not to be missed."
New this year is a special lecture series, Freud on Forbes, where members of the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center will analyze the script following four plays to help the audience get inside the mind of the playwright.
Tickets can be purchased online at pittsburghplayhouse.com, by phone at 412-392-8000 or in person at the Playhouse box office.
The season runs Sept. 8, 2017 through April 15, 2018.
