Mai Khoi rose to pop stardom in Vietnam, often compared to Lady Gaga. When she turned her celebrity to the cause of free expression, her music was banned. She was detained, harassed, and shunned by her country. Now living in exile in Pittsburgh, her stunning multimedia performance chronicles her brave journey while celebrating her artistry and the importance of standing up for one’s beliefs, no matter the cost. Read more about Mai Khoi and the inspiration behind Bad Activist.






As we raise our curtains and return to live performances, your health and safety is our priority. Our goal is to ensure you can comfortably resume enjoying cultural events once again!

Point Park University’s Pittsburgh Playhouse has instituted layers of defense against COVID-19 and the safety practices for our guests, students, staff, and artists – the latest of which is a vaccination and mask requirement.

Point Park University requires all students to be vaccinated. Additionally, a university-wide mask mandate is in place. 

The vaccine policy begins September 1 and will remain in effect through April 30, 2022. We will continually be monitoring this protocol along with federal, state, and local guidelines and keep you informed of any changes.

Vaccination and Masking Requirements

Guests ages 12 and older who are attending a public performance at the Pittsburgh Playhouse must be fully vaccinated with the Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccine and must show proof of vaccination with their valid ticket at the time of entry. Fully vaccinated means that on the date of the performance you would have received your second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or a single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine at least 14 days prior. Proof of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. Guests may display proof on a smartphone or present a physical copy. Use of a Digital Vaccination Passport App is also acceptable.
