"As we look forward to our digital spring offerings, the Playhouse will continue to offer you the best new creative work alongside a wide variety of newly imagined work."

Steven Breese

January always puts me in a good mood.

No, it’s not the cold; not the short days/long nights, not the snowstorms or the seemingly endless overcast skies. No, it’s not how January looks or feels that elevates my mood, it’s what this time of year inspires and awakens in me: possibilities!  The barren trees and grey-brown grass somehow seem less permanent once we turn the page on the calendar. And, while the snow will certainly fly again before the final spring thaw arrives, the ice and chill seems a little less penetrating; the ground a little softer; my coat a little warmer. For me, January is a time for optimism and the anticipation of what will soon—inevitably—bring rebirth, renewal and change.

This past year was…well, let’s just say “it was challenging.” Even so, the Playhouse discovered innovative new ways to present outstanding art and entertainment; new methods to engage our audiences; new pathways to enhance and grow our reputation. Our spring season invites even more possibilities!

As we look forward to our digital spring offerings, the Playhouse will continue to offer you the best new creative work alongside a wide variety of newly imagined work. Our Dance and Theatre offerings will continue to bring the best live entertainment from “our stages to your living room” and we will build on the fall success of our new Pittsburgh PlayLab.

Looking ahead, we will soon be releasing information about our summer-21 and our 2021-22 production season. And while no one can accurately predict the future – I can confidently say that the Playhouse creative team is growing ever-more-excited about the possibilities!   We look forward to the day that we can re-open our doors and invite you back into our magnificent spaces to enjoy some of the best live entertainment in Pittsburgh!

So, please join me as we celebrate our fall successes; look forward to our spring production offerings; and dare to imagine all of the exciting possibilities that await us in 2021!
