Today’s City Paper includes a preview item about tomorrow’s Off the Record XIV: Mysteries of Pittsburgh! , the long-running musical-comedy spoof that local stage performers, media types and even some real live politicians put on for a worthy cause (this year, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank).
Another option is tonight’s special preview performance of the show at the Byham Theater, benefiting another worthy group. Same cast, same material, but the proceeds help out Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh. Since 1965, BBBS has sought to help children facing adversity by putting them in professionally supported one-on-one relationships with adult volunteers.
Tickets for the preview show are $25. A $50 VIP ticket includes a pre-show event at nearby Alihan’s Mediterranean Cuisine, including hors d’oeuvres, two drink tickets and live music, and preferred seating at the Byham.
The show itself starts at 8 p.m. More info is here.
