This hybrid storytelling sensation has been growing in popularity since its co-producer, Alan Olifson, brought it to Pittsburgh over 3 years ago. With frequent media buzz, (Pittsburgh Magazine’s Top 10, Pittsburgh in the Round’s Top 5, Post-Gazette’s Hotlist) WordPlay almost always sells out weeks in advance! So what is WordPlay and why should you get a ticket? The Breakdown Happy Half-Hour: 7:30pm-8:00pm (free drinks!) Come for WordPlay’s free Happy Half-Hour! You never know what surprises we’ll have in store, but they’ll always be original and interactive (don’t worry, participation is optional). Will you get the chance to record your own story in our “mini-studio” or a take part in an epic audience party game? You have to show up if you want to find out! The Show: 8:00pm With brazen honesty and creativity, actors, comedy writers, and everyday people read their own stories while our DJ spins a real-time soundtrack using anything from Brahms to Beyoncé. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll get an extremely intimate look into the life of a total stranger. What is WordPlay and why is it so special? It’s simply real people, sharing real stories with a real live soundtrack. Please Note: WordPlay presents stories about real people in real situations. We value all true stories and showcase a range of experiences and adventures in our programming. Due to the real nature of our stories, WordPlay is not always suitable for very young people and sensitive listeners. Please be advised when considering attendance.
