Microsoft Word – PRESS RELEASE 2014-15 Season.doc
The University of Pittsburgh Stages is proud to announce another exciting season, beginning this fall with the soul-searing drama Stop Kiss. The Pitt Stages continues their season with two hilarious productions on opposite ends of the comedy spectrum – the raunchy musical Avenue Q and the Spanish golden age play Dog in the Manger. Pitt Stages close out their year with Sam Shepard’s brutal examination of the American dream, The Curse of the Starving Class.
This season also features a very special, one-weekend only, performance of A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters. Long-time Pittsburgh favorite Richard McMillan and his wife, Anne Louise Bannon, perform this touching work in November. All proceeds from the event go towards a fund for undergraduate theatre students at the University of Pittsburgh named in honor of Richard McMillan.
