Other Broadway Venues in Pittsburgh

Built in 1927 and beginning it's life as the Stanley Theatre, the Benedum Center reopened in its current form in 1987 after extensive renovations. The refurbishments included extensions to the stage and a new building, but the original vintage interior was restored to its former glory. A jewel in the crown of Pittsburgh's cultural district, the center hosts the best Broadway shows and exciting concerts as they tour, and is also home to resident organisations including the Pittsburgh CLO, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, and the Pittsburgh Opera.

Gypsy

July 10-19, 2015

With music by Jule Styne and lyrics by the great Stephen Sondheim, Gypsy is considered by many to be the greatest American musical of all time. While its celebrated score includes Everything's Coming Up Roses and Let Me Entertain You, what really sets Gypsy apart is its devotion to real characterisation and riveting human drama.

The Wedding Singer

July 24-August 2, 2015

Robbie Hart spends his life making sure other people have the ultimate soundtrack to the most romantic night of their lives. That is, until his fiancee leaves him at the altar, and he spends his night dispensing with love songs, to tell the audience what he really feels about it all! But when he meets Julia, a winsome waitress who's getting married to a hot-shot Wall Street douche bag, he starts to fall deeply. With 18 original songs, this hilarious tale of love lost and found is guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, and remember the 80's fondly!
