Adding to your weekend
Start your weekend early and come out Thursday, September 19 for a special live broadcast of Add It Up podcast. Listen, laugh and learn with host Addi Twigg and her special guests, Valiant & Valiant and live music from The Wreckids. There will be audience participation, too; all for a measly sawbuck (five dollars, kids!).
One Night Only Thursday, September 19, at the Arcade Comedy Theater, 811 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh PA at 8:00 p.m. For more information, check out www.arcadecomedytheater.com
Thursday, September 19 you can attend an art gallery reception for Faceburgh: Portraits of a City. Take a gander at Matte Braidic’s intriguing portraits of fellow Pittsburghers going about their daily lives.
You’re welcome to attend at the South Side Welcome Center, 1100 E. Carson Street, South Side.
You can call 412-431-3360 or Facebook Faceburgh (just because it’s fun to say out loud) at https://www.facebook.com/faceburgh?fref=ts
You want a guaranteed skull-cracking good time? Head (and I do mean head) to “A Skull in Connemara.” You don’t even have to go all the way to Ireland, just up Forbes Avenue for the Pittsburgh Irish & Classical Theatre’s take on Martin McDonagh’s modern classic. It’s a story of a hard-working grave digger who may or may not have killed his wife.
Wednesday through Sunday to September 28, at the Charity Randall Theater, 4301 Forbes Avenue, Oakland. Call 412-561-6000 or 412-624-PLAY. You can also click over to www.picttheatre.org
Too, Too Twain
Think you’ve seen everything by Mark Twain? You are wrong; unless you’ve already seen “Is He Dead?” a recently discovered comedic work by Samuel Clemmons AKA Mark Twain.
Everyone knows that artists work sell better when they’re dead. So, a young Parisian painter fakes his own death and passes himself off as his own twin sister. Its art and cross-dressing! Take that RuPaul!
Art DeConciliis directs this merry comedy at the Little Lake Theater in Canonsburg, Thursday through Sunday until September 21. Hop down 19 or hit the Parkway to 500 Lakeside Drive, Canonsburg. For additional information call 724-745-6300 or hit them up at www.littlelake.org
Could Have Been A Contender
When Marlon Brando said, “Charlie, I could have been somebody. I could have been a contender,” he probably never thought people would imitate him forever. See the original movie, “On the Waterfront,” ironically not at the Waterfront but at the Melwood Screening Room in Oakland.
