It’s the last weekend in September and boy, it’s a big one! There’s a duck, a Big Bird, a Bard and one Bad Bunny!
Duck, Duck, Gallery!
This is it, folks! The big event of the season! A giant duck lands in the waters of Pittsburgh. You heard it here first, folks, during Phil Salvato’s ‘Burgh Vivant interview. Watch the world’s biggest bathtub toy from a party on the bridge! And then prepare yourself for the Festival of Firsts!
Witness the historic launch of a big, yellow ducky from the Sixth Street Bridge. Festivities include food, art and more. DJ Scottro will be spinning tunes from the bridge. It’s a Gallery Crawl Night in Pittsburgh so there will be lots and lots of stuff to see and do.
The duck is just the first step in a series of things going on in Pittsburgh during the Festival of Firsts. Keep watching this space for more information and take a gander at all of the fun over at www.trustarts.com
Shakespeare in Space!
Come out to the ToonSeum Thursday September 26 for the live reading of “William Shakespeare’s Star Wars,” retelling the cult-classic film in iambic pentameter. Don’t miss this mash up between the Bard of Avon and the Bearded Man of Modesto.
Let’s just lay the end of the opening stanza on you: “In time so long ago begins our play, In star-cross’d galaxy far, far away…”
Thou shan’t miss the tale epic! Even the groundlings can’t pass up this price; ‘tis free! ‘tis free!
Let the Force guide you over to the ToonSeum website for more information: www.toonseum.org
Shakespeare the Sequel
If you miss the ToonSeum event (don’t), you can still get your Shakespeare on at the Bricolage. They’re celebrating Midnight Radio: Shakesburgh! Season five of Midnight Radio doth begin anew! Though it’s not at midnight and it’s not radio; it’s a bunch of whacky fun with Tami Dixon, Jeffrey Carpenter and friends. Fun, laughs, interactive games and prizes!
If you’ve never been to a Midnight Radio show, get thee hence!

There are plenty of frights per night. The Forsaken! Pittsburgh Zombies! Creepo’s Christmas in 3D! All this and a deranged man in a dirty bunny costume.
