Here are the Top Five things to do in Pittsburgh this weekend, April 10 through 13. There are a lot of balls this week.
A bunch of LGBT organizations get together and have a kiki. Garden of Peace, GLSEN Pittsburgh, True T Entertainment and Will Gee’s Fashion present “Living Out Loud! The Kiki Ball.” They’ll be making some noise to celebrate the National Day of Silence (wait, what?). Actually the Day of Silence brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment.
Kick things up to high gear (and high fashion) and enjoy a fashion show and ball. It’s all happening Friday, April 11 at the Andy Warhol Museum (where else), 117 Sandusky Street, Pittsburgh.
It’s the biggest ball of the all, y’all. Attack Theatre’s getting dirty again. It’s the Dirty Ball. There will be performances, beats by Title Town Soul & Funk Party, art installations, fashions, throw-downs libations and cocktail fare.
Get dirty on Saturday April 12, at the Jane Street Warehouse, 2120 Jane Street, South Side, Pittsburgh.

This time we’re looking at Quantum Theatre’s Jay Ball (by way of a Michel de Ghelderode classic) with “Pantagleize.” Ball takes the 1931 play out for a spin, adding some wild new concepts. A secret password could bring down a dictator. You’ll “Howl” when you hear Ball’s take (that’s a hint).
Pantagleize opens April 11 at the Lexington Technology Center, 400 North Lexington Street, Point Breeze. For more information, go to www.quantumtheatre.com/season/Pantagleize
Ball three and no one walks.
Red Masquers is celebrating acclaimed Swedish playwright and novelist August Strindberg with a night of one-acts. See “Stronger” and “Playing with Fire.”
X meets Y on Christmas Eve in “Stronger” and a love triangle breaks out on an island in the Swedish archipelago in high summer in “Playing with Fire.”
Catch the Strindberg One Acts at the Peter Mills Auditorium, Rockwell Hall, 600 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh.
Unplanned comedy has a special guest and we’re wiggin’ out about it. WTAE news anchor Sally Wiggin is coming to the Union Pig and Chicken to be the Mondo (a monologist who comes up with a monologue on the spot). A group of talented improvisers will take her off-the-cuff speech and create comedy from with it.
Go for it, Sally!
It’s all Unplanned Comedy April 12 at The Union Pig and Chicken, 220 N. Highland Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA
