About the Performance
Giuseppe Verdi's La traviata  the fallen woman- is a compelling tale of love, intrigue, money and power in 19th century France.  La traviata tells the heart wrenching story of courtesan Violetta ValГry, played by Pittsburgh favorite Danielle Pastin, last seen here in 2015's Cosi fan tutte.  Like so many of Verdi's works, La traviata explores grand themes through intimate family drama. Alfredo Germont played by Cody Austin in his Pittsburgh Opera debut wins Violetta's love and his father's displeasure. His father, going behind Alfredo's back, coerces Violetta into breaking up with Alfredo because their relationship threatens his daughter's engagement and his family's reputation.  Violetta will not disclose his father's role in their breakup, so Alfredo erroneously believes she loves someone else. He publicly denounces her, leaving them both grief-stricken. Will they reconcile before it's too late?  From the rousing Brindisi drinking song to touching arias, La traviata's singing and music are sure to delight.  Music Director Antony Walker conducts the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra and Chorus. Chas Rader-Shieber directs.

Shadowland transports audiences to her room in the thick of night, where the fantastical power of the dark unleashes a fantasy world in unexpected and utterly thrilling ways.

With Shadowland, Pilobolus exposes an off-beat coming of age story that is both dramatic and comedic.

Roving Pittsburgher Report, "39 Steps" is Non-Stop Hilarity! 

If you want side splitting laugh a minute entertainment then see Tony Award Winning Hit Comedy thriller, "39 Steps" at the Cabaret Theater.  What an uproarious experience in minimalistic stage effects with maximum hilarity. Four players take you through the twists and turns of a comedic plot using 1940's or Mel Brooks type music spots to hi-light the intense "drama."  Sorry, no drama just madcap hysteria.

Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA
is written in the stars July 26-31

The timeless story of forbidden love to make
Pittsburgh CLO debut at the Benedum Center!
Pittsburgh, PA ˆ™ July 15, 2016  A gripping tragedy of love that transcends all, Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA follows a courageous Nubian princess as she is forced to choose between passion and allegiance.  This poignant musical featuresHAMILTON's own Emmy Raver-Lampman as Aida and Broadway's Mark Evans as Radames.
Two strangers peruse a museum exhibit and are suddenly transported to Ancient Egypt where they meet as Aida, an enslaved Nubian princess, and Radames, an Egyptian soldier betrothed to the Pharaoh's daughter. Radames and Aida's forbidden love becomes a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity. As their epic story draws to a close, our pair of strangers resume their visit to the museum where they find themselves inexplicably drawn to each other. The unforgettable Grammy Award-winning score by Elton John and Tim Rice features soaring ballads including Billboard hit Written in the Stars.

Loudini Rock and Roll Circus Podcast

Albany Down The Outer Reach - 2016-06-16 22:27:08.002-04



The Loudini Rock and Roll Circus Music Podcast
Hosted by Lou Lombardi aka Loudini & Katie Simone
Featured Album: Albany Down The Outer Reach





Lou and Katie discuss and play some samples from the new album London Rockers Albany Down. Featured artists are Albany Down,  Typhoid Rosie , and Dead27s





Albany Down
http://www.albanydownband.com/
London-based Albany Down are a contemporary rock band with influences ranging from classic acts like Led Zeppelin and Thunder to modern bands such as The Black Keys and Clutch.  They combine a vintage rock-blues sensitivity with a contemporary aggressive energy.

Albany Down are Paul Muir on vocals, guitarist Paul Turley, drummer Donna Peters and bassist Billy Dedman and they have already recorded two albums with award-winning producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, INME, Super Furry Animals).

These guys are really going somewhere; make sure they take you with them!" Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2

The band is a hard-working, road-tested outfit, which has been well received at various UK festivals including the Maryport International Rock and Blues Festival; The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival (Colne); and The Great British Rock and Blues Festival (Skegness); as well as at venues like Barfly Camden and the legendary 100 Club.

< div style="text-align: justify;">In 2014, they toured the UK supporting New Jersey's Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes, which included the highlight of their year when they played at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.  This was followed by appearances at festivals in Belgium and the Netherlands before a very successful tour of Germany with The Brew.

Blues Rock Review offered a fair assessment of both the band and their 2011 debut album: South of the City is a solid debut album from Albany Down and they will be an interesting band to watch develop in the coming years .  The album clearly showcased what the band are capable of ranging from the superbly arranged Mercy to the low-down dirty, slide-led blues epic of the title track.

Their formidable second album, Not Over Yet , released in 2013, is full of their strongest songs, lingering melodies and great musicianship.  And where vocalist Paul Muir could previously have been compared to the likes of Paul Rodgers, he stamps his own personality on this album, while guitarist Paul Turley produces a virtuoso impassioned performance.  Traditionally a band's second album is regarded as being problematical but Albany Down turned that notion on its head.

Their live show never disappoints.  The band run on pure adrenalin, unrelenting energy and raw emotion and soon have any crowd entranced.  The music is based on thunderous guitar riffs and pounding drums juxtaposed with soulful, soaring, emotionally-charged ballads.

Rock blogger Neil Mach p robably got it right, when he recently described the band; As hot as volcanic ash and yet as cool as snow slippers.

Not Over Yet is an aptly titled album and an accurate barometer of a band on the up-escalator currently tearing up venues around the UK and Europe.  Having already generated over 7,500 Facebook fans, the band are due to start work on their third studio album in 2015. 

Both Albany Down albums, South of The City (2011) and Not Over Yet (2013) are available for download on iTunes and Amazon.

Albany Down is the new voice of British rock music.  A blend of contemporary rock and blues with added brill iance on top.  See for yourself.

Dead27s
http://www.dead27s.com/
On their first-ever attempt at writing together, Dead 27s came up with a batch of songs that perfectly embody the Charleston-based band's powerfully charged blend of rock-and-soul. Sprung from an all-night songwriting session on the coast of Sout h Carolina, several of those songs made their way onto Dead 27s' acclaimed debut EP Chase Your Devils Down. With the rest of the tracks set to appear on the band's first full-length album (due out this year), Dead 27s have brought a sharp sense of songcraft to the loose but potent musicality that's propelled the band since the first time they shared a stage.

The earliest incarnation of the band came to life in spring 2012, when Francis, Mullinax, Evans and Goldstein teamed up for a set at a local festival. Although the four had never played together, they instantly felt an undeniable chemistry that turned what was meant to be a one-time collaboration into a series of shows and”once Crider joined the lineup”the eventual founding of the band. Seeking a name for the event, the band began to brainstorm ideas and decided to pay homage to the dead 27s, a group of musicians known for leaving an indelible mark on American music. The name stuck more for the appreciation of pushing musical boundaries and leaving nothing on the table at live shows, than a direct mirroring of any of the 27s club members sound.
In the music of Dead 27s, a mutual appreciation for early American blues (Johnson), psychedelic rock-and-roll (Hendrix), punk-minded modern rock (Cobain), and painfully charged soul (Winehouse) merges with a shared passion for pushing into new sonic terrain. In the making of Chase Your Devils Down, that meant forging a groove-powered sound that's gutsy and urgent but graced with a sophisticated lyrical sensibility. One of our goals is to take people on a ride, says Francis of Dead 27s' ever-shifting dynamic. We wanna smack you in the face with some heavy guitar, then take it down with something quieter and softer and much more intimate.

The emotional element of Chase Your Devils Down also proves complexly textured, with Dead 27s exploring themes of overcoming struggle in love and everyday living. All the songs are based on the idea that no matter what life throws at you”whether it's in your job, your relationships, or just struggles you may have internally”you've got to take what you can from the experience, and don't let it get the best of you, Francis says.

Released in spring 2014, Chase Your Devils Down earned Dead 27s the Charleston City Paper Music Awards' Song of the Year prize two years in a row, thanks to the breezy heart-on-sleeve R&B of Don't Want to Live My Life Without You and the riff-driven swagger of Don't Comfort Me. Since the EP's release, Dead 27s have also found themselves ranked in the top 24 of VH1's Make a Band Famous competition and touring with the likes of Galactic, The Revivalists, Earphunk, Marcus King Band and Tab Benoit.
For Dead 27s”who've fast gained a reputation as an incendiary live act”each show serves as a breeding ground for creativity and a vessel for sonic expansion. Fueled by their unabashed belief in delivering a kinetic, thrillingly unpredictable set night after night, the band revels in the transcendent imperfection that comes from fully immersing themselves in the moment. And more often than not, says Mullinax, those beautiful mistakes help guide the band to their next creative breakthrough. Playing a song live takes it out of the vacuum of the practice room, and provides a connection with an audience that informs how the song wi ll be used in the future, he points out.

With their following on the rise and the band supporting bigger acts and performing at larger festivals (including FloydFest this July), Dead 27s' love of playing live ultimately connected them with Ben Ellman, the Grammy nominated New Orleans-based producer and member of the funk/rock act Galactic. Ellman was enlisted as producer on their forthcoming full-length debut and”in creating the album”dedicated themselves to capturing the raw, untamable energy of their live show. With the new record, the one thing we knew for a fact was we didn't want to make it all shiny-clean”we wanted big guitars, big drums, a whole spectrum of feeling, notes Evans. The album also finds Dead 27s further broadening their sound by diving deeper into merging elements of psych-rock, throwback-soul and fuzz -funk. One of the coolest things about this band is we always want to evolve, try new things, go in new directions we haven't tried before, says Mullinax. It's what keeps the music fresh, and what keeps the whole experience exciting for everyone involved.


Critics are saying...

"Anyone who claims that rock and soul ain't what it used to be clearly hasn't heard of these stunning musicians. This will remind you of soul and blues from the late 60's with rock from the early 70's. But probably the most compelling quality of the Dead 27s is how seamlessly they stay true to the pure, old school rock and soul sounds while making their music cutting edge relevant to toda y's listeners."  
JamSphere - 2015

"...Creative and timeless music with impassioned veracity...a refreshing blend of song-craft and musicianship..."
Terry Adams, Charleston Magazine, May 2014  

"I want to hear it in an American-made car, with the top down, tearing down the highway...it's something special...a no frills straight forward rock and soul album that showcases the talents of one of Charleston's best live bands"
Devin Grant, Charleston Grit, May 2014

"...the album incorporates some delicious musical influences with a fresh approach that leaves you wanting more and h itting the replay button often."
Robert Loughry, Bright Lights Big City Talent Management, May 2014

"(Don't Want To Live My Life WIthout You)...comes off like a perfect hit ” it's catchy and infectious, yet so guilt-free that it could only be created by a band who bows down at the altar of Hendrix, but isn't afraid to write a pop song a la Mayer Hawthorne."
Stratton Lawrence, Charleston City Paper, March 06, 2013

"Dead 27s are developing their own sound, and they credit their own relaxed attitude, the ease with which they jam with each other, and the addition of the talented Trey Francis as major factors in shaping their latest original material."
Jared Bo oth, Charleston City Paper, August 01, 2012

Loudini Interviews FROOMADOR - 2016-06-20 06:38:38.623-04



Combining an acoustic sound with the electrical pulse of Indie Rock, Froomador's unique songwriting approach leaves room for the listener's own interpretation. His latest album, Can't This Wait includes the single Solar Energy for which there is a climatic music video that has been filmed in the Arizona desert, and has just been released in early 2016.






Orlando native Ryan Froom credits his passion for music to his father whom he watched simultaneously play the guitar and sing at church during his early childhood. By the age of 10 he had his first guitar and was 12 years old when he wrote his first song. His father introduced him to the The Doobie Brothers , Beach Boys", and The Beatles during his early teens in which Ryan also began to sensationalize the sport of surfing. Heavily influenced by the beachy tunes, Ryan acquired a palate for the soothing sounds of the ukulele, and began to incorporate them into his songs. During his early high school days, he recalls sneaking into his older brother's melancholy record collection and discovering the sound of The Cure , The Smiths , and Nirvana . It was then that Ryan also began to incorporate the electric guitar into his songwriting sessions.


At the age of 23, Ryan moved to Argentina and would spend the next eight months learning Spanish and being surrounded by Latin Jazz and Flamenco. By the age of 24, he lived a few months in Brazil where he would also learn to speak Portuguese and develop an interest in Brazilian samba and the sassy Latin tunes, inspiring him to write and record his album Pavement Ends several years later. In 2009, he enrolled in the prestigious school of music Berklee in Boston where he would focus on Jazz Composition and classical arrangements for the next year and a half.

Froomador has performed live in several cities including Hollywood and Claremont, CA, Washington D.C., and countless venues in his hometown Orlando, FL, where he currentl y resides. Along with the release of his album Can't This Wait , his performance schedule will also be announced.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dear Boy Kicks-Off Musical Theatre Artists of Pittsburgh's Hot Metal Musicals Incubator in June

Pittsburgh, PA  June 14, 2016. On Monday, June 27, 2016, MTAP--Musical Theatre Artists of Pittsburgh launches Hot Metal Musicals Incubator with Dear Boy, book and lyrics by Jeanne Drennan and music by David Berlin, to be presented as a reading at 7:00pm at the Pittsburgh CLO's Charles Gray Auditorium, 130 CLO Academy Way in downtown Pittsburgh.

Stephanie Riso, producer
Dear Boy has seen much development since its debut reading in 2010 under the guidance of producer Stephanie Riso while at Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre (PICT).  The piece has continued to grow and evolve, benefitting from workshops of act one and act two at the University of Pittsburgh and MTAP respectively. 

Librettist and lyricist Jeanne Drennan, who also serves as MTAP's Managing Director, commented on the direct impact that the Hot Metal Musicals Incubator will provide. 

Since that initial reading David and I have made huge changes to the work: to the music, to what parts of the story get pulled into the foreground, to the inherent theatricality and the comedy that goes along with it. But since 2010 we haven't had the opportunity to see the entire show presented as seamlessly as possible. So that, and the immediate audience response to the show, will tell us what more we need to do before the show is ready for production.

Jeanne Drennan (book/lyrics) comes to musical theatre naturally through her work as a 12 Dogs and Get out of Dodge, with the latter play to be produced this November at the Venice Theater in Venice, FL. Drennan has had plays produced or developed in a range of theatres from tiny places in New York to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Bay Area Playwrights Festival.
playwright, with seven fellowships from the PA Council on the Arts to her credit along with awards for her plays


David Berlin (composer) has collaborated extensively in dance-theater and multi-artist performances, and Dear Boy marks his first foray into musical theatre. Primarily a teacher and educator with orchestral compositions performed nationally and internally by such groups as the Philadelphia Classical Symphony Orchestra, the Renaissance City Woodwind Quintet, Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, Sterbrooke Ensemble at NYC's Carnegie Hall and Galapagos ArtSpace in Brooklyn, his experience collaborating with artists such as dancers and poets position him well for the extensive reworking involved in bringing a new musical to life.


About Dear Boy
Dear Boy presents the true story of parental love gone haywire in the 18th century.  The Earl of Chesterfield, a man who in the 1740s was in reality a significant political player in England, is remembered chiefly today for his many letters to his illegitimate son, Stanhope, a boy he sent off to be raised as a gentleman and scholar. As was the case through his letters, Chesterfield in Dear Boy seeks to control every detail of his son's life, from his education and training to his choice in love.  In fact, he knows nothing of his son's secret life as a husband to Eugenia and father to two children. This news, when it comes, leaves the family in jeopardy unless the earl can overcome a profound sense of betrayal.


About The Cast
The cast features Michael Marra as the Earl of Chesterfield, Stanley Graham as his son Stanhope, and Hilary Caldwell as Eugenia. Cyndi Plyler as Mrs. Gimlet leads an ensemble that includes Hope Anthony as Companion and Sara Fisher as Mlle. du Bouchet, plus Rob James, Ryan Patrick Kearney and Nick Mitchell.

Regionally, Graham has performed twice with the Pittsburgh Symphony Pops, with the Pittsburgh New Works Festival, and recently played John Wilkes Booth in Assassins at Stage 62.
in 2015 with a B.F.A. in musical theatre. While at Point Park he played leading roles such as Curly in

New Roving Pittsburgher Reviews!

 

Roving Pittsburgher Report, "39 Steps" is Non-Stop Hilarity! 

If you want side splitting laugh a minute entertainment then see Tony Award Winning Hit Comedy thriller, "39 Steps" at the Cabaret Theater.  What an uproarious experience in minimalistic stage effects with maximum hilarity. Four players take you through the twists and turns of a comedic plot using 1940's or Mel Brooks type music spots to hi-light the intense "drama."  Sorry, no drama just madcap hysteria.

Roving Pittsburgher Report, Le Corsaire A Pirate Saga with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater Orchestra

              My love affair with ballet begins with Le Corsaire. Friday April 15, 2016 was my second, live, full-scale, professional ballet theater experience. I was quickly seduced with its dynamic and explosive character, movement, and scenery. In contrast, I did not fall in love with ballet during my first experience during the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater's season opening performances showcasing William Forsythe's work. That stuff was way over my head, too modern and stark for my understanding as a novice ballet spectator. Le Corsairse's classic themes made it easy to sympathize with.

RovingPittsburgher, Roving Pittsburgher Report, Cirque de la Symphonie a Big Win in a Sports Town 

Cirque de La Symphonie which performed with the Pittsburgh Symphony orchestra April 29 thru May 1, 2016 is a breathtaking bucket list addition if you have not seen it.  It is quite simply a marriage of exciting movement and music with unique elements of danger and comedy when the aerial hoop and aerial silk artists swing out over the symphony crowd.

Let it Out by Flying Joes Review by Loudini

Based in Montral, Canada, Flying Joes evoke the raw power of pure 70?c??s rock, inspired by an authentic blues sensibility. Formed in January 2014, the trio of Syd Bedard (bass, vocals), JF Arsenault (guitar) and Thomas Brodeur (drums) has a contagious energy both live and on record. Bolstered by their modern rock sound, their festive roadtrip songs call to mind classic bands like Led Zeppelin and Cream.

"39 Steps is Non-Stop Hilarity."

by Good News Reporter, Joanne Quinn-Smith

If you want side splitting laugh a minute entertainment then see Tony Award Winning Hit Comedy thriller, "39 Steps" at the Cabaret Theater.  What an uproarious experience in minimalistic stage effects with maximum hilarity. Four players take you through the twists and turns of a comedic plot using 1940's or Mel Brooks type music spots to hi-light the intense "drama."  Sorry, no drama just madcap hysteria. 


It's interesting to note that everything old is new again as the original globe theater had no curtain to rise and fall between scenes and 39 Steps was not much different.  The Cabaret Curtain fell possibly once during intermission.   In Shakespeare's time a wall and a door were used to signify comings and goings, in this slapstick comedy there was no wall, just a door. For comings and goings and quick changes of characters costumes and being able to actually see some of that going on, added to the comedic impact of the actors.

There is no lack of talent either on the part of the actors, Quinn Patrick Shannon and Allan Snyder are the perfect clowning partners reminiscent of old time comedy such as the Keystone cops and Abbot and Costello playing multiple parts of spies, law enforcement and husband and wife (yes wife) villains and innkeepers.  Please don't discount the element of outrageous drag in this play.  Did I say 39 Steps has something for everyone? And it' s hard to believe that with all this hilarity the show could be G rated, not even PG.


The femme fatale of the play, Megan Pickrell also moves easily between three parts from the manipulative spy to the farmer's wife and the aloof career woman. On the other hand Richard.  Luke Halferty as Richard Hannay only plays one part through multiple assumed identities that allows for everything from comedy to drama and slow motion silent film effects.

The Director Guy Stroman deserves huge commendation for a great work of comedic art.  This is also the one time that I must mention the technical side of the show and all deserve equal kudos.  Scenic Desinger Tony Ferrieri, loved "the car and its lights."  Lighting Designer, Andrew David Ostrowski, were you responsible for the dancing stick puppets?  Costume Designer Stephanie Shaw, what genius in designing quick changes for comedic transition of characters!  Sound Designer Bob Bollman's precision with sounds at the mention of "39 Steps" and the scenes behind the opening and closing of doors!  And not to be left out Production Stage Manager Tim Brady!  All I can say is, "wow."

Enough! Enough, I could write for hours about this play.  This reviewer personally thinks it is the best play that the CLO has done at the Cabaret.  Just go see it, it runs thru August 14, 2016.  And bring the out of town visiting relatives, they will love it too.

Pirates join with Crisis Center North to say No More  

Second Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Night at PNC Park, Sat., June 4

Crisis Center North and nine other non-profit agencies are partnering with the Pittsburgh Pirates to say NO MORE to domestic violence during the 2nd Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Night at PNC Park.

Prior to the Pirates and Angels game on Sat., June 4, Crisis Center North will be on hand for an information fair
picture from http://pittsburgh.pirates.mlb.com/pit/community
sponsored by the Pirates on at PNC Park on Federal Street from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Attendees can learn how gendered violence impacts their community and how they can take a stand.


"Crisis Center North is excited to continue our partnership with the Pittsburgh Pirates in an effort to shape community perceptions about domestic violence, says Grace Coleman, executive director of Crisis Center North. The partnership stresses the importance of male engagement in the issue and underscores the fact that domestic violence is everyone's business."

The awareness night is part of the Father's Day Pledge to End Gender Violence, a month-long campaign by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.

With the support of local agencies, community members, and organizations, the campaign is geared toward spreading awareness of domestic violence issues and resources for victims.

All of Pittsburgh needs to come together. Now, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto says. I applaud the Pirates and the Pennsylvania coalition against domestic leadership on this critical issue.

We salute the local, civic religious and business leaders who are working together to make Pittsburgh a model for our state in the campaign to end gender violence for the next generation, says PCADV executive director Peg Dierkers.

Interested community members can also support the campaign on social media using the hashtag #FathersDayPledgePA.

WAGNER PRAISES PAT MOVE TO ADD TRIPS TO UNDERSERVED AREAS


MEDIA CONTACT: Lou Takacs, Communications Director


(Pittsburgh) May 19, 2016    Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner lauded today's recommendation by the Port Authority of Allegheny County (PAT) administration to bolster service
picture from http://www.alleghenycontroller.com/
to neighborhoods in Wilkinsburg, Penn Hills, and Pittsburgh.

I am extremely pleased that PAT's leadership has agreed to the repeated requests of residents of these neighborhoods and their advocates for more service. For many in these communities and others, public transit access is not a luxury, but is essential to getting to jobs that do not fall within regular business hours. A ˜most livable' city cannot leave whole neighborhoods cut off from opportunity, and this decision takes encouraging steps toward meeting the needs of some of these areas, Wagner said.

Last week, Wagner issued a financial report showing that the County's Alcoholic Beverage and Vehicle Rental taxes have produced a $16 million surplus in a fund that by law must be used for public transit. She urged that these funds be put to immediate use for service improvements.

New state funding and the increased local economic activity that has produced the transit fund surplus give us the opportunity and the obligation to connect all of our communities to areas that are prospering. More neighborhoods remain where this need must be addressed, and we also must continue steps to modernize the system so that it attracts new ridership. PAT has taken encouraging steps with the upcoming fare changes and now with this announcement, but further advances must continue to be made, Wagner said.

New Roving Pittsburgher Reviews!

by Roving Pittsburgher Reporter, Joshua Kurnot 


                My love affair with ballet begins with Le Corsaire. Friday April 15, 2016 was my second, live, full-scale, professional ballet theater experience. I was quickly seduced with its dynamic and explosive character, movement, and scenery.

RovingPittsburgher, Roving Pittsburgher Report, Cirque de la Symphonie a Big Win in a Sports Town 

Cirque de La Symphonie which performed with the Pittsburgh Symphony orchestra April 29 thru May 1, 2016 is a breathtaking bucket list addition if you have not seen it.  It is quite simply a marriage of exciting movement and music with unique elements of danger and comedy when the aerial hoop and aerial silk artists swing out over the symphony crowd.

Roving Pittsburgher Report, A MODERN OPERA GERTRUDE STEIN AND ALICE TOBIAS THE TALK OF PARIS

Pittsburgh has many jewels in its cultural crown. One of the brightest jewels is the Pittsburgh Opera.  The 77th season began  with the Pittsburgh premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon's 27.  Spotlighting larger than life novelist, poet, playwright, and Pittsburgh native Gertrude Stein and her partner Alice B. Toklas27 will delight you with Ricky Ian Gordon's "tuneful score" and Royce Vavrek's "quick-witted libretto."
