    A Musical Christmas Carol encapsulates the jovial spirit and yuletide magic that comes with the holiday season, as this production infuses the classic Dickens tale with seasonal melodies.

  • The Park House
    Situated inside a 120-year-old building, The Park House's dining room exudes turn-of-the-century grandeur. Stamped-tin ceilings soar overhead, and the walls are ornamented in handcrafted woodwork and exposed brass. Today, these formal furnishings contrast with the laid-back atmosphere of the restaurant. Floors fill with the peanut shells patrons are encouraged to toss on the ground, and live bluegrass bands and DJs take to the stage each week. In the kitchen, chef Zamir Zahavi—a self-proclaimed “falafel master”—creates a menu of casual Mediterranean-inspired dishes. He plates the classic triad of pita bread, hummus, and falafel, and enhances burgers with international flourishes such as challah rolls and ajvar, a spicy serbian sauce. Diners can wash down their meals with more than 80 microbrews and craft beers, such as lambic framboise, Chimay, and Yuengling, clinking glasses over the din of an Internet jukebox and big-screen TVs.

  • Downstage Entertainment
    Menopause the Musical has painted a vivid, rib-tickling portrait of four women confronting the troubles of middle age for audiences in hundreds of cities all over the world. The show tells the story of four strangers, meeting by chance at a department-store lingerie sale, who begin to commiserate on the travails of menopause, including hot flashes, mood swings, and spontaneously breaking out in song-and-dance routines. Parodying a suite of hits from the '60s, '70s, and '80s, the musical's jaunty tunes encourage dialogue about women's health while eliciting copious chortles of recognition from guests.

  • Pittsburgh Musical Theater
    Hitting the road from the Idea Warehouse on their 2012 Rock-O-Matic tour, the Imagination Movers bring the music and fun of their Emmy-winning Disney Channel show to the stage of the Benedum Center. The four-piece band of problem solvers plays energetic, kid-friendly tunes in a wide range styles, from rock and pop to ska and funk. Clad in blue jumpsuits, Dave, Rich, Smitty, and Scott launch into the brassy, bouncy introduction of the Imagination Movers theme song. The following set list entertains kids with audience interaction, keeps parents interested with musical references to U2, Jack Johnson, and other famous bands, and stops the sobbing of distressed clowns.

  • Family House
    The nonprofit Bodiography Contemporary Ballet explores the struggle against heart and lung disease in a performance that layers multiple genres of dance over a classical-ballet foundation to create evocative, modern movements. Artistic director and choreographer Maria Caruso's experience interviewing patients, shadowing heart surgeons, and following physicians pulsates through this eclectic work, which is inundated with poignant emotion and certifiably sterile heartstring tugs. Proceeds from the event benefit Family House?s Family Assistance Fund, which provides housing for seriously ill individuals and their families staying in the Pittsburgh area for medical treatment.
