Under the leadership of Artistic Director Marc Masterson, Managing Director James McNeel, and the Board of Directors, City Theatre’s mission is to provide an artistic home for the development and production of contemporary plays of substance and ideas that engage and challenge a diverse audience.
The Mainstage Theatre seats 254 and accommodates a variety of unique configurations to enhance the audience’s theatrical experience.
Every seat is a good one in this intimate, black box theatre. With room for just 100, the Hamburg Studio invites the audience into the action.
From sewing costumes to constructing sets, the production team makes each performance an authentic, theatrical event. The Charles Morris Building houses the rehearsal hall, as well as costume, prop, and paint shops. The Walter Long Building, a former steel rolling plant across from the theatre, functions as a storage facility for set pieces and materials.
Described by The New York Times as “Pittsburgh’s most innovative theater company,” City Theatre specializes in new play development. We are the largest theatre in Pittsburgh dedicated to a full season of all new work, commissioning and producing plays by writers at the forefront of the industry, including Daniel Beaty, Jessica Dickey, Christopher Durang, Michael Hollinger, Willy Holtzman, Tarell McCraney, and Theresa Rebeck. Take a seat at City this season for cutting-edge, new theatre, bold by design.
