When: Sat., April 21, 8-10 p.m.
Imagine showing up at an art class only to find out the guy you’ve been messaging on Tinder is the model. That’s the premise of Pittsburgh-based playwright Brian Pope’s Milo de Venus. The world premiere tonight features Joanna Getting, Hazel Leroy, Jalina McClarin, Max Reusing and Mike Zolovich, and is directed by Shannon Knapp. Says Pope, “My goal with the script is to subvert the artist-muse complex I watched play out in shows like Sunday in the Park With George, not just by casting a woman in the role of the artist and a man in the role of the muse, but also by bringing that conflict down to earth.” - Rebecca Addison
