If I were to compare the city of Pittsburgh to a film, I'd probably go with "Forest Gump". I haven't seen much of it.
Unfortunately, due to some other projects I'm working on I haven't had a chance to get out and actually SEE much of Pittsburgh so far. But judging from my walk to and from the theater, it seems pretty regular!
Buildings? You bet. Streets? Oh, they got em. You want a pile of busy, rich-looking business people on their smoke breaks? Everywhere.
If were to compare the city of Pittsburgh to an animal, I'd probably go with a moose. Have I seen a moose? Of course. Do I know anything particularly interesting about a moose? Well yes, but that's not the point. The point is - I haven't seen much yet, but I will this next week. Hopefully.
Tomorrow we head to the (hopefully not rained out) Pirates vs. Cardinals game to sing the national anthem! (If you wanna check us out, I think the game will be on ESPN 2.) Then on Tuesday a few company members and I will be headed to a local performing arts high school to give an audition masterclass, followed by some more rehearsals on Wednesday, plenty of shows, and all sorts of Pennsylvanian pleasantries.
Until then, enjoy some pics I took of the BEAUTIFUL Benedum Center theater and a few snaps from my walk to work in Pittsburgh:
