Cabaret Theatre Goes Live

Pittsburgh’s Cabaret at Theater Square has joined the city’s live music scene by adding concerts to its schedule starting this September.

Officials with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, which oversees the 253-seat venue, said local and national acts will be featured to give music fans another alternative.

“We’re continuing to answer the question: ‘What’s exciting to do in the Cultural District for younger audiences?'” Paul Organisak, the Trust’s VP for programming, said in a statement.

“There are quality shows on our stages, cutting-edge exhibits in our galleries … and now there’s a new concert series at the Cabaret that turns up the volume and enhances the comprehensive programming available in the District.”

The series kicked off September 7th with Bill Deasy and special guest Clark Slater. The Weekly Review Traveling Roadshow featuring former Toad The Wet Sprocket frontman Glen Phillips, Griffin House, and Kim Richey is scheduled for September 21st.
