We’re excited to announce the first in-person monthly jam session for Spotlight, a space for Pittsburgh-based LGBTQ+ theatre artists to take center stage. During these meet-ups, we invite LGBTQ+ folx of all backgrounds and experience levels to share their talents and ideas with each other in a fun and casual atmosphere. If you’re an actor and have a monologue that needs an audience, come on down and let it rip. If you’re a playwright and have 5-10 pages of a play you’ve been working on, bring them over and let’s read them. If you’re a designer and have a design concept you’re dying to share with some fellow artists, we’d love to hear all about it. If you want to just observe and cheer on, awesome! Any and all theatre folk are welcome to the party.
Reservations are required. Please email email@example.com and send us the following info by September 22nd:• Your name• Your pronouns• How you’d like to participate (if you’d like to share a monologue, song, scene, design work; just tell us a little about who you are; or simply observe)
We can’t wait to see you there!

Experience the history of Pittsburgh legends who are buried at The Homewood Cemetery! Prime Stage Theatre and local actors in period costumes portray their incredible lives and the impact they had on Pittsburgh.
Broadway/Television stars Donna Lynne Champlin ("Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and a CMU grad), Tony Award nominee Sally Mayes (SHE LOVES ME) and Valerie Wright (KIMBERLY AKIMBO) headline a concert presentation of a new musical, THE CRINOLYNNS.
The Crinolynns (a fictitious girl group from the late 1950s/early 1960s) are reuniting after 40 years away from the spotlight. They're ready to share a new act about the realities of life after the prom, getting a ring, and landing the cute boy- but still written in the melodic, infectious girl group style. The show might be described as the love chile of The Golden Girls and FOREVER PLAID, with a dash of FOLLIES thrown in.
The show features an original score with music in the style of Carole King, The Crystals, The Chiffons, and the other queens of the girl group genre. The show was written by Broadway veterans Scott Logsdon (book/lyrics) and Aaron Gandy (music.)
