Here’s the thing…
There’s an immersive theatrical experience over at Modern Formations Gallery August 8 through 10 with “Her Things: An Interactive Estate Sale.” Search for clues among 100 touchable artifacts; interact with performers, both gracious and intimidating. The clever and the brave will be rewarded with the solution to a mystery! This wacky show sold out in March, so now’s your chance to go to this crazy, innovative show. You will find “Her Things” over at Modern Formations Gallery, 4919 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh. For more information, go to http://www.uncumbertheatrics.com/
Today and Tamara
Quantum Theatre opens their season with John Krizanc’s “Tamara.” It’s another interactive, immersive theater event, where patrons get to follow along with their character of choice. Stalking as a theatrical event. Fun! The action takes place at Rodef Shalom Congregation, 4905 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh.

Cover the Exits
Three strangers are brought together unaware that they’ll be spending a lot of time together. Eternity! Go see Jean-Paul Sartre’s classic existential tale about the afterlife, “No Exit.” You can enter “No Exit” by going to Schenley Park, Panther Hollow Road, Pittsburgh. Look for the bubble on Flagstaff Hill. For additional details, call 502-263-3326 or go to http://bubblepgh.com
