November 2017

Our November update comes from our Assistant Production Manager, Dan Freeman. He fills us in on some of upcoming events and why we chose the plays in our 2018 season:

"Hello, friends of Throughline! Here we are in the doldrums of autumn, but the Pittsburgh theatre scene – as well as our company! – are vibrant as always. I am very excited for what’s to come to Throughline with our 2018 season. We have decided to curate a season of comedy! With the seemingly ceaseless stress of living in our world today, we at Throughline thought it would be a welcome relief to take a step back and let our wonderful audiences laugh their cares away. We will be producing The Inspector General, Ubu Roi, and Picasso at the Lapin Agile; these shows come from different times and different places, and represent a dynamic range of comedic techniques – but each is sure to have something to make ‘em laugh! I’m so thrilled to be able to work with such a talented group of theatre-makers, and hope you’ll be able to join us in 2018!"

For our first post Hannah Brizzi, Marketing Administrator, discusses one of her favorite Throughline performances and some of the reasons why she loves volunteering her time with us:

"I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in numerous seasons of Throughline Theatre Company. A couple years back, I acted in their all-female production of "Everyman." It was incredible to work with a bunch of fierce, talented, incredible ladies (plus our fearless co-director Joey Yow). I love how this past season, The Fair Sex, featured numerous plays with female centered plots and a bunch of juicy roles for us to play. I remember when Sean Sears announced we were doing “The Vibrator Play.” I gasped at the table out of excitement. It’s a fantastic show with a solid message, and not nearly as scandalous as it might sound. Throughline always does exciting work that is inclusive to all. I’m proud to be a part of it."
