by Brian Quijada

September 23 – October 15, 2023 
Directed by Laura Alcalá Baker 

A co-production with Pittsburgh CLO and People’s Light (Malvern, PA) 

Inspired by the true story of the playwright’s mother’s journey from El Salvador to the US,  Somewhere Over the Border brings audiences down a different yellow brick road in a new musical. Infused with Cumbia, Mexican Mariachi Boleros, American Rock, and Hip Hop, it’s an uplifting tale about the power of determination, family, and love. 

“I’ve been waiting to see a brown, Central-American Dorothy, and soon, the American Theatre will be introduced to her.” – Brian Quijada 


By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon

November 25 – December 17, 2023 
Directed by Kyle Haden

A charming celebration of beloved characters, Miss Bennet takes place two years after the end of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Join the Bennets, Darcys, and Bingleys, as they gather for Christmas at Pemberley when an unexpected guest’s appearance sparks dreams of love. 

 “…an unstuffy, highly entertaining and warm-spirited work, the kind of thing multiple generations can enjoy together.” —Chicago Tribune. 


by James Ijames

March 2 – 24, 2024  
Directed by Monteze Freeland

A co-production with TheatreSquared (Fayetteville, AR) 

This uproariously funny, Pulitzer Prize-winning new play comes to City Theatre straight from Broadway! A modern revamp of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Fat Ham follows Juicy, a queer, pensive, young Black man finding his way in the world when the ghost of his father demands Juicy avenges his murder. Set at the family cookout, this “hilarious yet profound tragedy smothered in comedy” (The New York Times) examines love, loss, and a particular set of daddy issues. 


by Tami Dixon

January 13 – February 18, 2024 
Directed by Matt M. Morrow

In 2012, Tami Dixon sat on the sidewalks of the South Side of Pittsburgh asking residents to tell her stories. The resulting one woman play delighted audiences and was described as “dazzling” and “a big, fat evening of bliss” (City Paper). Ten years later, Dixon returns to the streets of the South Side to revisit her vivid set of tales and explore how the community where City Theatre resides has changed.   


by Brent Askari

April 20 – May 12, 2024 
Directed by Marc Masterson

In 1976, celebrity artist Andy Warhol traveled to Iran to take Polaroid pictures of the Shah’s wife. This imagined experience of an encounter with a young Iranian radical is a fiery, thought-provoking drama about art, revolution, and discovering a world beyond yourself. 

And in a story when people get what they want, that’s a happy ending, right?”
