MTAP--Musical Theatre Artists of Pittsburgh--brings together a group of local and regional artists working in a wide range of musical theatre expression, from solo cabaret to full-length narrative musical theatre. Through monthly meetings, the group supports the development of new work, serving as an incubator where new works of musical theatre come into being and are nurtured.
Hot Metal Musicals 2019 was a great success!
The third edition of MTAP's showcase of new music by Pittsburgh artists played to an appreciative full house at the Greer Cabaret Theater on July 15. There were songs from 14 new shows, as well as a spattering of stand-alone songs; you can read more about them here.

MTAP gathered for the annual cookout at the home of Chuck and Joanne Sperry on Sunday, August 4. Many thanks to Chuck and Joanne for once again opening their home to the group.
Also in August, members Anita Spano and Marisa Wexler mounted two performances of a semi-staged reading of their show Corporate America. The August 10 performance had a full and enthusiastic house. Anita and Marisa also scheduled a matinee performance for the following day. Congratulations to both.
