There’s always something going on in Pittsburgh. Every week we pick the Top Five Fun Things to do in Pittsburgh. Here’s the list for May 1 to May 4. May the Fourth be with you.
It’s not too late to catch a bunch of screenings at the 9th Annual Silk Screen Film Festival. The festival runs all week long but check out the various events and various locations.
Green Eggs and Singing!
Only a Grinch wouldn’t buy tickets to “Seussical the Musical.” He’d sneak in through the chimney! Come out and see a Cat in a Hat, or a Horton hearing a Who. See Tim Hartman in a hat almost as tall as he is! Who knows what else in “Seussical the Musical.”
“Seussical the Musical” is at the Byham Theater, 101 6th Street, Pittsburgh, PA.

Money Changes Everything
There’s a lot of confusion when an earnest aerobics instructor unknowingly acquires a suitcase full of cash in “Bottoms Up.”
“Bottoms Up!” is at the South Park Theatre, Corrigan Road at Brownsville Road, Bethel Park, PA.

Sandra Bullock was in a movie called “Hope Floats.” She was also in a movie called “Gravity. “ The show at the City Theater has nothing to do with either of those things. “Hope and Gravity” is a non-linear comedy about fate, just as this paragraph is a non-sequitur apropos of nothing.
Float over to “Hope and Gravity” at the City Theatre, 1300 Bingham Street, South Side, Pittsburgh.

And now a sixth thing….
Girls Gone Mild!
Goody Plenty and the Amlets are back, baby! You can catch “Amish Burlesque; Featuring Goody Plenty and the Amlets” at the McKeesport Little Theater. The Plenty and her Amlets lampoon Broadway show tunes with an Amish flare, or lack of flare. It’s the cleanest dirty show in town. ‘Burgh Vivant contributor Andy Coleman plays Jebadiah, the Emcee, in a show directed by the vivantiest ‘Burgh Vivant himself, Brian Edward.
Get in your buggy and drive over to “Amish Burlesque” at the McKeesport Little Theater, 1614 Coursin Street, McKeesport, PA.
