Pittsburgh Public Theater
Pittsburgh was about to fall off the theater map when Pittsburgh Public Theater debuted in 1975. Faced with shuttered ticket windows, a dwindling audience, and marquees holding messages like "Goodbye cruel world," founders Joan Apt, Margaret Rieck, and Ben Shaktman were determined to make their company a success. And that determination paid off: their first season's productions of The Glass Menagerie, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Twelfth Night raked in critical acclaim and audience fanfare. Ticket sales climbed, and the trio eventually increased their season to six productions. Among these have been classics as well as plenty of new works, such as August Wilson's King Hedley II and Michael Cristofer's Amazing Grace.
