A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner, David Auburn's drama Proof establishes how difficult it is to prove sanity, love, and faith. After discovering a potentially groundbreaking mathematical proof in her deceased father's notebook, a young woman questions how much of his genius, and madness, she has inherited. The show contains adult language, so parents bringing young ones are encouraged to stuff their kids’ ears with peanut butter before the show.
The show is produced by Pittsburgh Musical Theater and takes place in the historic Byham Theater. All tickets are in Gold Circle seating and can be picked up before the performance at the Theater Square box office or the day of at the Byham Theater box office. Children's tickets are regularly priced at $25.
Founded in hopes of bringing about a revival of the American brass band, River City Brass aims to share the uniquely joyous art form with audiences across Pennsylvania. And for the past 30-odd years, the group has done just that. River City Brass’s 28-piece ensemble—some of whom have been members since the early ’80s—play more than 50 concerts annually. Their programs span continents and centuries, with every performance bringing a new showcase of styles. Modern music, classical pieces, big-band jazz, and show tunes have all passed through RCB’s bright cornets, chortling tubas, and crisp percussion.
Dedicated to celebrating the ghosts of musical theater past and present, the Pittsburgh CLO proudly remains a nonprofit cultural institution that lauds distinguished musical-theater folk while launching the careers of another generation of skilled performers.

Since opening with a Frank Sinatra performance in 1990, the stadium now known as Times Union Center has seen more than 15 million guests pass through its turnstiles. That’s only slightly smaller than the population of the Netherlands and roughly equal to the number of people worldwide who enjoy candy corn. Besides attracting such entertainment titans as the Rolling Stones, U2, Disney’s “On Ice” series, and the Harlem Globetrotters, the multifunction arena is also home to the AHL’s Albany Devils and college basketball’s Siena Saints.
