Here are the Five Top Things to do in Pittsburgh December 25 to December 28.
It’s Christmas time! Start your weekend early and go to “Fearless: A Shepherd’s Story.” It’s the retelling of the story of a shepherd who came to Bethlehem (not the city in Pennsylvania). The performance has original music and dance with special guests Sheila Beasley and Linda Ross Brown. It’s at the New Hazlett Theater, Allegheny Square East, Pittsburgh (North Side). For more information, go to http://www.newhazletttheater.org/
Ali Spagnola is saying farewell to Pittsburgh, but she’s going out with a bang! Friday, December 26 you can say goodbye to this talented lady. She’s going to do 60 one-minute covers in one huge drinking game concert, “Ali’s Farewell Power Hour.” It goes down at Club Café 56-58 12th Street, Pittsburgh, PA (South Side). Tickets and more information, can be found at http://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?dispatch=loadSelectionData&eventId=5481885&pl=opus
When you hear “Christmas Star” most Pittsburgher’s think of that little star from the Eat N Park commercial. Ray Werner wants to make you think about war. Father and sons, veterans from two very different American wars (Iraq and Vietnam) gather together on Christmas Eve. It’s at the Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre, 937 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh (Downtown).
It’s not too late to catch “Murder for Two.” Two pianists (pause for a Beavis and Butthead moment) play all the characters in a murder mystery. It’s comedy! It’s music! It’s murder! Two out of three ain’t bad. It’s at that previously mentioned Cabaret at Theater Square. For more information, go to http://trustarts.culturaldistrict.org/production/42671/murder-for-two
Reality TV star and mayor of Pittsburgh, Bill Peduto, will join John McIntire on his Dangerously Live Talk Show on Saturday, December 27. John’s other guests include Post-Gazette cartoonist, Rob Rogers, and some comedian that writes this column (Hint: his gianormous head is at the top of this page). It’s the Dangerously Live Talk Show’s Year in Review episode at the Cabaret at Theater Square, 655 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh (Downtown).
