PITT ARTS has already completed three enormously successful Pitt Nights in the cultural district this fall. We are pleased to offer three more Pitt Nights in the Spring Semester. Could you please tell the Religious Studies students about these special events? Starting with the lushly costumed and musically gorgeous Amadeus with the Pittsburgh Public Theater on January 26. There is also Brooklyn’s exciting all-woman African American dance company, Urban Bush Women, and Senegal’s all-male dance company, Compagnie Jant-Bi performing The Beauty of Little Things on February 9, presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and CLO Cabaret’s hilarious musical offering, The Big Bang on February 28.
For a great price Pitt students, faculty and staff can attend a fantastic performance, enjoy a dessert reception, and meet the artists. Anyone worried about filling their gas tank and parking, can take the bus with us down to the Cultural District. Those wishing to participate in the upcoming PITT NIGHTS can purchase tickets through PITT ARTS located at 929 William Pitt Union. Call 412-624-4498 or visit www.pittarts.pitt.edu
Saturday, January 26, Pittsburgh Public Theater, Amadeus One of the triumphant successes of modern theater, Amadeus brings the dazzling legend and music of Mozart to thrilling life. Part biography, part murder mystery this Tony Award winner pits the envious composer Salieri, against the young genius, Mozart, in a fight to the finish with 18th century Austria as the dramatic backdrop. Tickets are $16 for Students and $28 for Faculty/Staff. Join us for the pre-show dessert reception, and a chance to meet with Artistic Director, Ted Pappas, and performing cast members!
Saturday, February 9, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Urban Bush Women/Companie Jant- Bi Brooklyn’s all-female company Urban Bush Women and Senegal’s all-male company Compagnie Jant-Bi, share a source of inspiration: the role of identity within a community. Their combined work, The Beauty of Little Things, is rich with West African movements, rhythms and styles. This is a rare and unforgettable dance experience. Tickets start at $19 and include a free dinner.
Thursday, February 28, CLO Cabaret, The Big Bang Jed & Boyd have a dream – to tell the story of the world, from Adam and Eve through today, via a full-scale Broadway musical. This dream comes complete with 1,400 wigs, 6,428 costumes and a cast of 318 with a budget of $83 million dollars. The production promises to render history in the most politically of incorrect ways. You’ll watch them perform their 13-hour-long musical in a breathless 80 minutes, in an attempt to encourage an audience of investors to back their tremendous vision to hilarious consequences. $17 for Student tickets and $19 for Faculty/Staff tickets.
