Abduction, MTAP's first workshop production of a new musical, played for 4 performances over Halloween weekend to enthusiastic crowds!
From the writing team of T.J. Pieffer, Becky Toth, and Brad Kemp, Abduction was postponed from its original April, 2020, dates, but, as audiences discovered, this production was worth the wait. A typical survey reponse: "Witty and awesome!" We look forward to hearing about subsequent development and productions of this terrific new show.
Douglas Levine will be music-directing the upcoming new musical An Untitled New Play by Justin Timberlake, a co-production between City Theatre and the Pittsburgh CLO. With book, music and lyrics by Matt Schatz, the show runs November 27 to December 19. Contact City Theatre for information about tickets.
