Here are the Top Five Things To Do in Pittsburgh the week of October 23 through 26.
If Stephen King taught us anything in the at last few years, it’s “Never mess with a telekinetic teen on Prom Night.” However, it will be loads of fun when those crazy folks at Midnight Radio perform “SCarrie: The Musical” down at the Bricolage Theater, 937 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh PA. If you’re lucky, you’ll even get to meet Odie, the Theater Dog. The show opens Thursday, October 23. For more information, go to http://www.bricolagepgh.org/
How many boys? How many Girls?
It takes a big set of brass ones to audition for a Broadway play, but Val will be glad to tell you it takes some brand new T & A to really get a call back. You can hear all about it in Pittsburgh Musical Theater in collaboration and Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts Orchestra’s version of “A Chorus Line.” It’s at the Byham Theater, 101 6th Street, Pittsburgh, PA.

Who You Gonna Call?
The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man returns to Pittsburgh when Arcade Comedy Theater’s Live Read Series brings back “Ghostbusters.” There’s something strange in your ‘hood, yinz guys. You can hop in your ghost-mobile Friday and Saturday at the Arcade Comedy Theater, 811 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh. For more information, go to http://arcadecomedytheater.com/
