Pittsburgh Public Theatre Presents, “Art”. What do you see when you look at an artist’s ultra-modern canvas? After Serge, a dermatologist, buys an expensive all-white painting, he is astounded by the reaction of his buddies Yvan and Marc. There’s more than meets the eye in this smart and stylish comedy about male friendships by Yasmina Reza. Her Tony Award winning play has been a phenomenal success all over the world and The Public’s new production is sure to be a work of, well, art. For more information visit Pittsburgh Public Theatre. Don’t forget to head over to the Carlton Restaurant for a meal before the show and get a free limo ride to O’Reilly’s Theatre.

Nunsense. Sister Julia has accidentally poisoned 52 of her fellow sisters at the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery. Heartbroken and in need of funds to bury their last four departed sisters, the five surviving take over the school auditorium to raise money showcasing their hysterically hidden talents. Featuring star turns, tap dancing nuns, an audience quiz and comic surprises, this is one talent show that is truly heaven sent! Winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Off-Broadway Musical, Nunsense has become a must-see international phenomenon. For more information visit the Pittsburgh CLO.

Discover the Real George Washington: Views from Mt. Vernon. Now until July 18th the Senator John Heinz History Center will serve as the premier venue on a nine-city national tour of Discover the Real George Washington: New Views from Mount Vernon. This exhibition features highlights from Mount Vernon’s world-class collection and provides a new perspective on Washington, his achievements and legacies, his family and times, and most importantly, his intellectual pursuits and entrepreneurial ventures.  For more information visit the Heinz History Center.

Time of My Life. You have until this Sunday, May 16th to catch Time of My life at O’Reilly Theatre. When the Strattons meet at their favorite restaurant, they are hoping for a good time. But for playwright Alan Ayckbourn, time is relative – and wildly funny. While parents Gerry and Laura reminisce in the present, son Glyn and his wife are viewed in the future, and son Adam and his girlfriend are seen from the past. Meanwhile, one actor works overtime as the entire restaurant staff. Ultimately, Ayckbourn’s sly comedy suggests that living in the moment is the best time of all. For more information visit Pittsburgh Public Theatre.
