The Volunteers & Staff of The Strand would like to express their most sincere condolences to the family and friends of local rock & pop icon, B.E. Taylor, who passed away on Sunday, August 7.  B.E. was beloved by so many, but in particular, we were blessed by his acoustic performances on our stage over the last several years.  It was pure joy to work with B.E, his wife Veronica, and his fellow band mates.  He will be missed by those with The Strand, as he will be missed by so many that knew the man as well as his music.  Godspeed, B.E. Taylor

Room
Friday & Sunday Only! August 26 & 28

Starring   Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay & Sean Bridgers

 

OSCAR WINNER!  BEST ACTRESS BRIE LARSON

 

Room is one of those extraordinary films that you probably missed at the cineplex.  It follows a spirited young boy who is looked after by his loving and devoted mother. Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical.  They are trapped; confined to a 10' x 10' shed that Ma euphemistically calls Room. Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life.

To prepare for what would become her Oscar-winning performance, Brie Larson isolated herself in her home for a month without a phone or internet and followed a strict diet in order to get a sense of what Ma and Jack were going through. She has said that because she considers herself an introvert, she thought that her month of isolation would be a vacation, but towards the last week she became very depressed and would cry all day.

In several interviews, the author of the book on which the movie is based has said the story is not based on any specific real-life case.

The Jungle Book
Friday - Sunday, September 2 - 4

Starring Neel Sethi & the voices of Bill Murray & Ben Kinglsey

 

After a threat from the tiger Shere Khan forces him to flee the jungle, a man-cub named Mowgli embarks on a journey of self discovery with the help of panther, Bagheera, and free spirited bear, Baloo.

 

This is the third live action reboot of a classic Disney animated feature film in the 21st century; the previous two being Maleficent (2014) and Cinderella (2015), with many others still to come.  Disney became attached to a live action version of The Jungle Book, released in 1994.

 

While the film is a live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book (1967), the filmmakers decided to include elements from the Rudyard Kipling novel to make the film more adventurous and dangerous. The story of the film is not independently taken from Kipling's works but also borrows cinematic inspirations from other films, including the child-mentor relationship in Shane (1953), the establishment of rules in a dangerous world from Goodfellas (1990) and the use of a shadowy jungle figure in Apocalypse Now (1979).


The animal characters were both motion-captured and performed live on set by puppeteers from the Jim Henson Company. For the on-set performances, Jim Henson's Creature Shop built elaborate life-sized puppets to act alongside Mowgli and serve as eye-lines.

All of the locations in the film are computer-generated VFX. The story may have been set primarily in India, but the film was completely shot at the LA Center Studio in Los Angeles, California.

Money Monster
Friday & Sunday Only! September 9 & 11

Starring George Clooney & Julia Roberts

 

Financial TV host Lee Gates and his producer Patty are put in an extreme situation when an irate investor takes over their studio

 

The Strand is proud to offer another entry from the infamous 'Blacklist', an annual survey by producers, directors and studio execs of 'most liked' screenplays that went unmade that year.  Money Monster was on the 2014 Blacklist.

 

This film marks the fourth time George Clooney and Julia Roberts have appeared in a film together. The other three are Ocean's Eleven (2001), Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002) and Ocean's Twelve (2004).  It was Clooney who suggested Roberts for the lead role in this film.  However, for scheduling reasons, the two didn't work together a lot in the movie. Furthermore, Roberts shot all of her scenes with green screen on the monitors her character is constantly watching.

 

Just 'friends'.  Both Clooney and Roberts appeared in separate episodes of the long-running sitcom, Friends.


Director Jodie Foster was considered for Julia Roberts' roles in Pretty Woman (1990) and Conspiracy Theory (1997).

Big River
September 23 - October 2

Winner of SEVEN Tony Awards!

 

Big River is the lavish musical based on Mark Twain's classic 1884 novel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and is the next fully produced, full-cast musical to grace The Strand's intimate space.  The show won SEVEN Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score.

Big River features music in the bluegrass and country styles in keeping with the setting of the novel. The original Broadway production ran for more than 1,000 performances and stands out as of the few highly successful American musicals to emerge during the mid-1980s.

Whether this is your first time, or if it's one of your all-time favorites, there's no better way to enjoy Big River than in the intimate setting of The Strand. As we've demonstrated with past successes like Jesus Christ Superstar, The Music Man and Oliver!, a full-cast musical is a completely unique and unforgettable experience.  You won't miss a single smile, wink or tear while being immersed in the setting of Civil War-era Missouri.  And, yes, we will 'float' a raft on stage!

Walk The Line
Friday Only! October 7

Make it a 'Man In Black' Weekend!

 

Join us for this chronicle of the life of Johnny Cash ahead of Saturday's Cash & Cline Tribute Concert.  Walk The Line was nominated for 5 Oscars, and won 1 for Best Actress Reese Witherspoon.

 

Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon performed all of the songs themselves, without being dubbed. They also learned to play their instruments (guitar and auto-harp, respectively) from scratch.

 

During one scene, Johnny Cash is high and performing I Got Stripes, he walks right up to June Carter and glares at her for an uncomfortably long period of time on stage. According to the director, James Mangold, this was unscripted and improvised by the actors. Mangold said that he simply told Phoenix to do what he would do in real life if he were angry at his girlfriend and then had to perform on stage with her. Much to Phoenix's surprise, this backfired and Witherspoon responded to his actions by simply rolling her eyes, and continuing to perform the song. Phoenix later said that her reaction threw him off because his goal had been to make her as uncomfortable as possible, and she just tossed it aside. 

 

The director said that the two stars developed a very codependent relationship during filming. According to him, after the filming wrapped, Phoenix admitted that he and Witherspoon made a secret pact. The deal was that if one of them left or dropped out, the other would leave as well.  The relationship didn't start out that way, however.  Both admitted that they didn't get along at first because they were so nervous about singing.  They argued constantly for the first six months of singing lessons.  It was only after filming started that they become close friends.

Cash & Cline: A Classic Country Tribute
Saturday Only!  October 8  2pm & 8pm

Terry Lee Goffee and Josie Waverly Return with Their Stirring Tributes to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline

 

Terry Lee Goffee's interpretation of Johnny Cash is almost as legendary as The Man in Black, himself. Joined by fellow artist Josie Waverly, whose Patsy Cline tribute has won enormous praise as well, when the two appear together, it's Classic Country Magic!

The two brought their amazing duel tribute to The Strand last year and sold out both shows. Audiences raved at the quality and vitality of both artists, and it's a privilege to bring them back.



Cash & Cline is presented in two acts, with each artist and their bands performing the hits you know and love. But it's the finale that really steals the show, as Terry Lee and Josie take the stage together to sing songs and share stories about the icons that they hold so dear. If you love classic country, this is the show for you!

Chiller Theatre: The Musical
Friday & Saturday Only!  October 21 & 22

The Strand 'Revives' (Get It?) This Hauntingly Hilarious Musical Revue, Live(ish) On Stage!

 

Chiller Theatre: The Musical is a delightfully demented music and comedy revue that pays a wink and a nudge to those late night fright fests that kept as awake at night, hosted by the likes of Chilly Billy and Elvira.  But it's also outrageously original, and like nothing you'll find anywhere else to help you celebrate the Halloween season.

An off-the-wall host tries to keep the show on track.  But even more colorful characters and questionable circumstances make that a daunting task.  From the classic monsters to inept psychics, no other Halloween show will have you rolling in the aisles or tapping your toes like this one.

And you haven't experienced karaoke at its frightful finest until you've seen Chiller Theatre's 'Skaraoke' Contest, featuring twisted takes on rock and pop standards by characters that likely shouldn't be doing them for a variety of reasons.  And when our remedial psychic tries to reach spirits from the beyond....well....the results are as hilarious as they are unexpected!

Chiller Theatre: The Musical is the second show of our all new 'Tis The Season subscription series.  Subscribers can enjoy this show, plus Children Of Eden at a deep discount, plus additional discounts on select holiday-themed shows, no-hassle date and seat changes if needed and first priority alert status on new shows before they're announced to the general public.  Become a 'Tis The Season Subscriber today!

A Sensational Tribute to Sinatra & Streisand with a Yuletide Spin!

 

Sebastian Anzaldo & Sharon Owens return to The Strand with their sensational tribute to Sinatra & Streisand, but this time the 'What If' showcases what a Christmas concert between to the two music legends might have been like!

Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand never shared a stage, and it's unlikely these two vocal powerhouses ever would have. But Anzaldo and Owens have had great fun answering the burning question 'What If?'.

The popular tribute artists take that question one step further with this special Christmas time version of their concert. Can you imagine how their snippy banter may have gone.....say...under a mistletoe? If you've enjoyed this stirring tribute act before, you'll be sure to love this Yuletide interpretation!

It's A USO Christmas
Friday - Sunday, December 9 - 11, 2016
Swing into that Good Old-Fashioned Christmas Spirit

 

Nostalgia takes the stage as The Strand presents a concert event saluting those famous USO shows produced for our troops overseas back in the 1940s and 50s.  Expect non-stop music, comedy and ‘backstage’ hijinks.

 

It's a USO Christmas harkens back to the beloved variety shows made famous by the likes of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Marilyn Monroe and The Andrews Sisters.  We honor these heroes of yesteryear with a fictional cast of characters and a story that weaves between on-stage performances and peaks 'behind the curtain'.

 

The Emcee is the wise-cracking song and dance man, trying to keep his stars in line and the troops entertained. The Starlet is a voluptuous bombshell that handles anything from the sultry 'Santa Baby' to the warm-hearted 'Christmas Song'. The Broad has soul, wit & heart wrapped up in a bawdy, funny gal. She'll make you laugh, then break your heart.  The GI is young, handsome, idealistic, and sings like an angel.


It's A USO Christmas is a show whose audience has grown every year since its debut.  Updated with new music and comedy routines in 2015, it continues to find new fans while others make it a part of their annual Christmas traditions, just like A Musical Christmas Carol or The Nutcracker.  But this is an EXCLUSIVE production of The Strand.  If you don't see it here, you won't see it anywhere else!

Original Music Revue Saluting a Groundbreaking Collaboration

 

In 1963, Ella Fitzgerald and The Count Basie Orchestra were already titans in jazz and blues.  While they did work together on the 1957 album One O'Clock Jump, it was Ella & Basie!, with arrangements by a young Quincy Jones, that was to become one of the most revered projects of the industry.

This original concert tells the story of this iconic collaboration.  Brought to you by the creative minds behind It's a USO Christmas, Broadway Rocks! and Celebration: America, this concert tells the story of these two legends and a young protoge, leading up to the 1963 release, of course the album itself, and a hint of what was stil to come.

On January 9, world-renowned Saxophonist Eddie Manion performed a SOLD OUT concert at The Strand, the EXCLUSIVE Pittsburgh venue for his CD Release Nightlife.  Eddie - along with Joe Grushecky and a 'who's who' of the Steel City's musical elite - followed up that show with another packed house concert on June 11.

Eddie Manion has lived a life of Rock & Roll, R&B, Jazz, and Blues.

March 31 - April 9, 2017

Stephen Schwartz' Beloved Interpretation of The Book of Genesis is The Strand's Next Full-Cast, Fully Produced Musical!

 

Children of Eden is probably Stephen Schwartz' most popular musical to never actually have a run on Broadway, the show has since grown to become a global phenomenon.

Whether you've seen this beloved musical once or a dozen times, you haven't seen it produced in the intimate setting that is The Strand Theater.  You won't miss a single smile, whisper or tear, with the furthest seat in the house just 25' away.  Of course, Strand audiences have come to expect a professional production featuring a stellar cast and top-shelf production values, and it is ever our goal to meet or exceed those expectations.

Children of Eden
at its heart, explores the lessons of family, parenting and letting go.  This joyous and inspiring musical celebrates the difficulty of choice, the importance of passion, the value of questioning, and the pain in allowing those you love to take risks and face the consequences.  Be sure to spend part of your Easter season at The Strand to experience this wonderful program.

Children of Eden is the anchor show of our all new 'Tis The Season subscription series.  Subscribers can enjoy this show, plus Celebration: America and Chiller Theatre: The Musical at a deep discount, plus additional discounts on select holiday-themed shows, no-hassle date and seat changes if needed and first priority alert status on new shows before they're announced to the general public.  Become a 'Tis The Season Subscriber today!

Groucho: A Life in Revue
Fri - Sun, May 12 - 14, 2017

Critically Acclaimed Story of the Vaudeville Legend

 

Everyone has a friend who does a great Groucho, right? Your uncle does a great Groucho, you probably think you do a great Groucho, and will spout out a “that’s the most reediculous thing I ever hoid” at the slightest provocation. But according to Pittsburgh Post Gazette Theater Critic, Chris Rawson, Strand Fan-Favorite Jeremy Czarniak, ‘is the complete thing, which means not just the physical imitation – that’s the least of it, really – but the life within’. Jeremy’s portrayal twice won him mentions in The PG’s ‘Best Actor’ Category.

Co-written by Groucho’s son, Arthur Marx & Robert Fisher, this show is an energetic romp through the life of one of Vaudeville’s pioneers. Fast-paced, but also heartfelt & sentimental, A Life in Revue offers music, comedy and drama as it peers into the life of a comic who, toward the end of his life, almost apologizes for it.

Groucho: A Life in Revue completes The Strand's all-new Broadway On Main subscription series.  Subscribers will enjoy this show, plus the full-cast Big River and the original Ella & Basie! concert at a deep discount, plus a BONUS offer for the one-man play, The Chief.  Additional benefits include no-hassle date and seat changes if needed and first priority alert status on new shows before they're announced to the general public.  Become a Broadway On Main Subscriber today!
