By Michael “Buzz” Buzzelli, ‘Burgh Vivant

Go West, Young Man

This weekend, “True West” comes to Southwestern PA. In the play, two brothers–and nemeses–are driven mad by the desert heat as their mother coldly observes the duel. If they can outwit one another, glory awaits. If they’re outsmarted…they’re toast. It’s at the Genesius Theater, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA. For tickets, click here.



Saturday April 29, it’s the Guilty Pleasures Party. The Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra has a few surprises planned. DJ Steve Knots will be slinging out tunes, but if you don’t like the music, you can pay to play! For 99 cents, you can get your favorite song in the mix (12 songs for $9.99). Dance the night away at the Irma Freeman Center for Imagination, 5006 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15224. For more information, click here.



This weekend you can get the full Justin and Jerome Experience (an improv comedy duo). Justin Vetter and Jerome Fitzgerald will introduce you to their “Slacks,” a brand new show with all-new sketches and all-new surprises. The Justin and Jerome Experience will be performing at the Arcade Comedy Theater, 811 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. For more information, click here.



Right across the street from the Arcade Comedy Theater, you can get your groove on. “Non-Punk Pittsburgh” is a retrospective of the music and arts set during the fall of the industrial revolution opening the door for the vibrant arts community Pittsburgh has today. It’s all at Space, 812 Liberty Avenue. For more information, click here.
