Here are the Top Five Things to do this weekend from September 4 through 7.


Don’t be Doubtless

This week, “Doubt, A Parable,” opens at the Little Lake Theatre. It’s John Patrick Shanley’s play about a priest, who may or may not have sexually abused a boy. I’m on the fence, but I’ll be in the front row.  “Doubt, A Parable” opens September 4 at the Little Lake Theatre, 500 Lakeside Drive, Canonsburg, PA 15317. For more information, go to


Get to bed!

“Bedtime Stories: The Summer Lovin’ Storyslam” is back. This time it’s at the Cloakroom. September 4, people will get up and tell sexually explicit (but tasteful) stories about their love life. The event is hosted by Gab Bonesso (always a guaranteed good time). It’s a suggested $5 or $10 donation, but it will be going to benefit Planned Parenthood of Western PA.  The Cloakroom is a brand new venue by our friends who brought us Bar Marco. The Cloakroom is at 5972 Baum Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15205.  For more information, check out their Facebook events page HERE.



Mondo goes Punk when Chris Barker of Anti-Flag tells stories based on audience suggestion. A group of improvisers will then act out said stories to a live audience. It’s all part of Unplanned Comedy, Saturday, September 6, now at a local LGBT bar in Lawrenceville.  Come down to Cativo, 146 44th Street, Lawrenceville, 15201 at 10 pm on Saturday and check out all the craziness for yourself.



The Associated Artists of Pittsburgh would like to welcome you to the AAP Curated Exhibit at the Unblurred Art Crawl. Things kick off Friday September 5 at the Most Wanted Fine Art Gallery, 5015 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA.  More information HERE.


Longest Title Award goes to…

“Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme” is coming to PICT Classic Theatre. The play is about the greatest single loss of life in the history of the Irish-infused British army. The battle took place during WWI in 1914. Its gonna be a tear-jerker, so bring your handkerchiefs.  The play opens in preview on September 4, but it runs until September 20th. Get tickets now. For more information, visit PICT HERE.

And now…a Sixth Thing…

Review: PAJAMA MEN at City Theatre

Mike Buzzellipodcast logo
by Mike “Buzz” Buzzelli, ‘Burgh Vivant.


A few months ago, Nick Cearley and Lauren Molina, the Skivvies, performed in their underwear at the City Theatre. This weekend, on the very same property, Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez perform in their pajamas. The City Theatre has always had a casual and intimate ambiance, but this is getting ridiculous. Speaking of ridiculous, Allen and Chavez certainly packed up plenty of ridiculousness for their trip to Pittsburgh.

The zany duo brings their multi-character sort-of scripted show to the main stage. The show is only partially scripted, but there is a through line; the action centers around a centuries-old king, his dark wizardly man-servant, two disaffected female village idiots, sinkhole investigators, a man and his motorcycle, a tremendous beast as well as a whole host of additional characters. Pay attention, because Allen and Chavez continually shift and morph into a myriad of characters and creatures. If you have Attention Deficit Disorder, this isn’t the show for you.

There are a few moments of laugh-out-loud craziness. Even when it’s difficult to follow, it’s still funny. Except there’s something about seeing two men in their pajamas playing on stage that is a little disconcerting. It’s like watching two kids in their bedroom playing, especially since the story involves castles, magic and monsters. It’s a little creepy.

Allen and Chavez are extremely talented. With a flick of a wrist, a wry sideways glance, or a fast-wagging finger the men transform from one absurd character to the next. Several characters were funnier than others. There is a moment, when Chavez is pulling Allen’s leg out of a bear trap/crown (don’t ask) that seems to stretch out too long, but, suddenly, the bit gets funnier and funnier with each bang of a gun, each slap on the ass (I told you not to ask).

Is the show funny? The performers certainly are. Some of the most genuinely funny moments come when the performers comment on their involvement in the craziness. It’s metatextual madness! A particular bit revolves around a one-armed woman and her prosthetic. There were also big laughs when the duo break character and laugh at each other. Think “The Carol Burnett Show.”

However, there is one unfortunate gag that opened the show. Right after a series of witty one-liners spoken directly to the audience, the duo transports themselves to a somewhat-ancient land. King Mark (Chavez) orders his man-servant Leopold (Allen) to behead a townsperson. A beheading that is meant to be funny, but the recent events in the news take the segment from merely morose to macabre. The gag almost led to actual gagging as Allen has difficulty sawing off the head of his imagined victim. It threw the show off-kilter, making it difficult to laugh (Reviewer’s Note: I was listening to Diane Foley, the mother of journalist James Foley, on NPR on the way to the show). Maybe they should poison, shoot or otherwise eradicate their foe. Suggestion: Toss the dude into a vat of piranha or feed him to the lions.

Chavez and Allen are from Albuquerque, New Mexico: America’s funniest sounding city. They may even be the funniest exports from the aforementioned Land of Enchantment since Mike Judge (creator of “Beavis and Butthead,” “Office Space,” etc…) and Marc Maron (WTF podcast). It seems a shame to fly Chavez and Allen into town when Pittsburgh is littered with hilarious improv and sketch performers. You can’t trip at the Arcade, SCIT or Harvard and Highland without falling on top of one.

To be fair, comedy may be a particular axe this reviewer grinds. It stings a little to see a full house come out and support strangers when the locals are doing hilarious shows to nearly empty houses.

Humor is most certainly subjective. One audience member next to me said, “My sides hurt from laughing!” I chuckled, I chortled, I even guffawed once or twice, but I’m not likely to point my thumb enthusiastically upward, but I wouldn’t cut off their heads, either.

You can find “The Pajama Men: For Just the Two of Us” at The City Theater, 1300 Bingham Street, Pittsburgh through September 7.

For more information, visit the Bricolage website.


I Love a Parade

Front Porch Theatricals are presenting “Parade,” the true story of Leo Frank in 1913 Atlanta, Georgia. It is about how past history and the events of the Civil War perpetuated beliefs and feelings long after the actual event. 1913 Georgia remained in a mind-set of North versus South; wealthy versus poor; black versus white; and non-Jew versus Jew. It also looks at the unique relationship between Leo and his wife, Lucille, and how their love develops and soars during times of tragedy, ignorance and rage. Parade also reveals the heartwarming and persistent efforts of Lucille to reverse the injustice done to her husband.  March down to the New Hazlett, Allegheny Square East, Pittsburgh (North Side). For more information, visit Front Porch online.

It’s playing at a scenic little spot in Canonsburg.  Charge up your golf cart and head down to the Little Lake Theater, 500 Lakeside Drive, Canonsburg, PA.

Each month, Gay For Good members donate their time to a community service project that benefits a local non-profit organization.

City Theatre presents THE PAJAMA MEN


podcast logo


PITTSBURGH, PA—August 4, 2014—City Theatre wraps up August with the Pittsburgh debut of award-winning sketch comedians The Pajama Men, performing their brand new show Just the Two of Each of Us. This City Events special presentation will run on City Theatre’s Mainstage  August 27 – September 7, 2014. Press night is Thursday, August 28 at 8pm.

Critically-acclaimed comedy duo The Pajama Men bring their trademark style of blink-of-an-eye character switches and sidesplitting humor to Pittsburgh! Originally from Albuquerque, the sketch comedians and masters of improv have become stars of the international comedy circuit, earning five stars from the London Times and comparisons to comic luminaries including Abbott and Costello, Monty Python, and “South Park.”

“Without elaborate costumes or props, The Pajama Men produce a riotous, theatrical evening of smart comedy—the kind that makes you laugh so hard it hurts,” says Tracy Brigden, City Theatre’s Artistic Director. “Expect fast-paced physical comedy and outlandish characters that you won’t find watching stand-up at a club. It is truly something you have never seen before. These guys take hilarity to new heights.”

The Pajama Men are Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez. The duo met in high school in the early 1990s in Albuquerque, auditioning for the high school improv team. It was at a time when having three side-by-side mohawks seemed like a good idea to Shenoah, and Mark was annually being voted class clown. They were teenagers. They didn’t know where they were headed, but they found, in each other, a vast ocean of bizarre, imaginary worlds that they chose to live in. The immeasurable blandness of their suburban surroundings became a blank canvas, and they spent their time talking in ridiculous voices to each other, absentmindedly creating long soap operas between characters that they spent more time inhabiting than they did being their “normal” selves. Eventually the lack of creative influences in the vicinity allowed, for better or worse, their unique comic voice to emerge in the form of partially-improvised, multi-character, narrative-sketch comedy shows. They have since written nine shows together and toured them to theatres and festivals around the world, receiving awards and acclaim, including “Double Act of the Year” by the London Times.
