The Dance of Death
Presented by Kinetic Theatre
Friday, April 17-Sunday, May 38PM, Sunday Matinees at 2PM
By August Strindberg
In a new version by Conor McPherson
Directed by Andrew Paul
Meet Edgar and Alice, a witty, long-married couple. Married perhaps 25 years too long, this career military man and his grand dame of a former stage actress wife reside in a former prison on a remote island off the Swedish coast. Rarely seen live, The Dance of Death is a caustic, hilarious black comedy. Kinetic Theatre’s Pittsburgh premiere production stars Sam Tsoutsouvas and Helena Ruoti, each in the role of this or any other lifetime, with Mark Staley as Kurt, the long-suffering soul who set them up.
Presented by Prime Stage Theatre
Friday, May 8-17Friday - Saturday 8PM, Sunday Matinee 2:30PM
A murder at Monkswell Manor. Who will be next? Colonel Metcalf, the neurotic Christopher Wren, the unpleasant Mrs. Boyle, the mysterious Miss Casewell, the unexpected guest Mr. Paravicini, or the young couple Moliie and Giles Ralston? As everyone accuses each other, can you trap the murderer before Sgt. Trotter does or before someone else dies?
The Last Five Years
Presented by Front Porch Theatricals
Friday, May 22-31Thursday - Saturday 8PM, Sunday 2PM
An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The Last Five Years’ unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically. Here’s the twist, though — the two characters only meet once!

On a train in Texas (circa 1925) sisters Francie and Sissy awaken to discover their mother has disappeared. A street rat, Mule, declares they are on an orphan train, bound for a new life, but the sisters know Momma wouldn’t leave them. In present day NYC, Elise and Frankie skip school to take a subway to Coney Island, but they encounter an old woman who wants to tag along and is willing to share the contents of her purse if that will get her there. This family friendly opera propels two trains through a little known piece of American history to a present that reveals the secrets from the past.
