Here are the Top Five Things to do in Pittsburgh in the last week of January.
Brush Up Your Shakespeare
Start your weekend really, really early…i.e. Monday January 26. See a lively troupe of actors from Pittsburgh’s Shakespeare in the Park will read monologues from William Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. Brush up your Shakespeare, because audience participation is welcome. Get thee to “Bring Your Own Bard,” at Te Café, 2000 Murray Avenue, Pittsburgh.

A Righteous Babe Returns
Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Ani DiFranco comes to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, January 28. You can catch the feminist icon at The Rex, 1602 South Carson Street, Pittsburgh (South Side). For more information, go to http://www.rextheatre.com/
You have only one more weekend to catch Handel’s “Rodelinda” at the CAPA Theater. It’s a classic story of love and betrayal told in Italian with English text. The opera is at the CAPA Theater, 9th Street & Fort Duquesne Blvd, Pittsburgh (Downtown). For more information, go to http://trustarts.culturaldistrict.org/production/40598/rodelinda
I believe in Claude!
It’s the Age of Aquarius in Greensburg this weekend. It’s dawning all over again over there. The rock musical “Hair” opens at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center. Talk about a far out show, literally and figuratively! The Greensburg Garden and Civic Center is located at 951 Old Salem road, Greensburg. For more information, go to http://www.splitstage.com/
Get out of Jail Free Card
Eisenstein delays his jail sentence one day to attend a fancy ball, and gets into a lot of trouble in Johann Straus II’s opera “Die Fledermaus.” The Undercroft Opera will present the opera this weekend at Carlow College, 3333 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh (Oakland).
