The Pennsylvanian
Originally constructed in 1900 for use as Pittsburgh’s Union Station, The Pennsylvanian is considered one of the city’s most architecturally significant buildings. The handcrafted, dome-shaped rotunda at its entrance—encapsulating the vision of Chicago architect Daniel Burnham—serves as a prominent symbol for Pittsburgh. Art critic Brendan Gill (The New Yorker) once proclaimed that The Pennsylvanian (previously Pittsburgh’s Penn Station) is “one of the great pieces of Beaux-Arts architecture in America.” 

Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts 
This fall, Pittsburgh’s Cultural District welcomes U.S., North American, and World Premieres during the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts, September 21 – November 11, 2018. Featuring 30 international companies and artists from 20 countries, including representation from Pittsburgh’s own arts community, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Festival of Firsts will electrify downtown with never-before-seen theater, dance, music, visual arts and immersive experiences. These are the ones you can’t describe in words.

The Festival captivated millions of visitors in 2004, 2008, and 2013, reinforcing the city’s reputation as a premier global destination for arts, entertainment, and culture. This time around, the Trust has doubled the Festival’s length and tripled its attractions, presenting more than 500 opportunities for everyone – locals and visitors alike – to experience groundbreaking international works in Pittsburgh. These are the ones that will change you.

Journey beyond your imagination this holiday season with The Polar Express 3D, a magical, heartwarming adventure to the North Pole. Based on the beloved children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express 3D tells the tale of a young boy who doubts the existence of Santa Claus. Late on Christmas Eve, the boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, embarking on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who just believe.

For families looking for an even more magical experience, there are three Polar PJ Parties scheduled for Fri., Dec. 7 at 6 pm*; Sat., Dec. 8 at 9 am; and Sun., Dec. 9 at 6 pm.

A Christmas Story is a tribute to the original, traditional, 100 percent, red-blooded, two-fisted, all-American Christmas. Set in 1940s Holman, Indiana, the film is Ralphie Parker’s wistful look back at a past Christmas, when he was 9 years old and his only dream was for Santa Claus to bring him an official Red Ryder carbine-action, 200-shot-range, model air rifle. See the gold-trophy-esque glow of the famous leg lamp, the Pepto Bismol-pink of little Ralphie’s bunny suit, and one family’s holiday setbacks and celebrations on Pittsburgh’s largest screen.

Mozart in Motion Opens Next Week at Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre

OCT. 26 - 28, 2018
Benedum Center 
Tickets start at $28. 
Groups of 10+ save up to 50%! Buy tickets online, at 412-454-9101 or via email.

Pittsburgh Ballet Theare's season begins next week with Mozart in Motion, three distinct ballets set to the magnificent music of Mozart played live by the PBT Orchestra. Choreography from dance icons George Balanchine and Jiří Kylián brings classical music to life, beginning with Balanchine's crystaline Divertimento No. 15. Kylián’s Sechs Tänze is a comedic clash of the classical and contemporary, peppered with powdered wigs and dry wit and, by contrast, Petite Mort juxtaposes the slow movements of two Mozart piano concertos with powerful dancing that integrates baroque dresses, fencing foils and black silks to striking effect.

Just announced: Check out the cast list here!
