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.

Kinky Boots is one of Broadway's most successful new musicals, snapping up six 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical!

Rogers and Hammerstein's classic adaptation has been reincarnated for the 21st Century, with a new book by Douglas Carter Beane that updates the fairytale with new sub-plots, whilst keeping the heart of this wonderful story of Cinderella, her glass slipper and the Prince who falls for her. This fresh and sweet revival is an opulent affair, with high spirited choreography, stunning costumes, against the soundtrack of R&H's best songs.

The Bridges of Madison County

March 8-13, 2016

Duty and desire collide in this unashamedly romantic musical, based on the treasured novel by Robert James Waller. The story follows the romance between Francesca, an Italian-American housewife unsure of herself, stuck on a remote farm in Iowa, and photographer Robert, who becomes lost whilst shooting the county's bridges and stumbles into her home. And so begins a tantalizing tale of love, loss and acceptance that will melt your heart.
