Here are the Top Five Things to do in Pittsburgh May 29-June 1:
Make Some Noise
Get set for Michael Frayn’s hilarious behind-the-scenes comedy romp, “Noises Off.” It’s a play-within-a-play about a troupe of British actors rehearsing and performing a sex farce comedy, “Nothing On.”
You can catch “Noises Off” at the Pittsburgh Public’s O’Reilly Theater, 621 Penn Avenue, Downtown Pittsburgh.
For more information, call 412-316-1600 or visit www.ppt.org
Festival of Plays
Things are moving pretty quickly over at The City Theatre as they mount “Momentum.” You can hear four new plays, discuss playwriting with a playwright’s panel and a whole lot more.
Momentum is at the City Theatre, 1300 Bingham Street, South Side Pittsburgh.
For more information call 412-431-2489 or visit www.citytheatrecompany.org
Love is in the Air
Love is in the air, and, quite possibly, in the attic at “A Love Affair.” This romantic comedy is about a couple clearing out their attic and reliving moments from their 38-year marriage.
It’s the last weekend, so hurry down to the South park Theatre, Corrigan Drive at Brownsville Road, Bethel Park.
For more information, call 412-831-8552 or visit www.southparktheatre.com
Thursday night you can head down to the East End Book Exchange for an enlightening and entertaining event, “True Story Party.”
Stacy Keene curates and collected some true tales from comedians Zach Funk, Ian Insect and Christine Marie, improviser extraordinaire Matt Bower and many more truth tellers. Thursday’s theme is “Don’t worry! I got this.” Perhaps Brophy from the Institute of the Very, Very Nervous will swing by and try to carry your luggage (That’s a joke from an ancient Mel Brooks movie called “High Anxiety.” Trust me, it’s funny).
The East End Book Exchange is 2754 Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield area of Pittsburgh.

It’s Raining Men
It’ll be raining men, when Martha Wash comes to Pittsburgh. The Queen of Clubland is performing free in Market Square for a special event called, “Fabulous Gay Friday!”
It’ll be fabulous. It’ll be free.
Fabulous Gay Friday takes place from noon till one Friday May 30.
