September 2018

Our Marketing Director, Hannah Brizzi, shares her thoughts on the past season and how we can make next season great:

What a season it has been! We have recently closed our 2018 season, one that I was lucky enough to be a part of. Pittsburgh never ceases to amaze me with it's incredible talent. When I showed up at the read-through for Picasso at the Lapin Agile, I was blown away by the talent around me. I hadn't done a comedy for a long time and I forgot how much fun rehearsals can be when you are just laughing constantly.

The laughs continued when I attended Ubu Roi and The Inspector General. When I read the scripts months ago, I couldn't imagine what these shows would look like up on their feet. I'm continually in admiration of our directors and creative teams and their incredible visions.

If there is one thing I realized during my time here at Throughline Theatre Company, it is how much work goes into making the shows happen. We are talking hours behind the scenes of people working late nights and weekends to get these shows up, noticed and seen. All on a volunteer basis. Yep, people might not know that we don't get paid. So that means it is just a team of very enthusiastic theater lovers that want to do everything they can to bring theater to the public. It is honestly the best kind of people to be around. I would encourage you to help us out by joining Patreon today. For as little as one fancy drink from Starbucks a month (seriously, the price of your Pumpkin Spice Latte), you can make an incredible difference for Throughline.

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!"
