B.U.S 8 - Tickets on sale now!
Friday & Saturday, April 5 & 6, 2013
On Saturday, a limited number of Mini B.U.S. tickets will be sold for $45 at the door.
B.U.S is back and it's bigger, bolder, and better than ever! It's the only fundraiser of its kind in Pittsburgh, and this year we are pulling out all the stops!
An incredible line-up of local artists risk their creative necks to support Bricolage’s 2013 season. Inspired by a 90-minute city bus ride, a crew of more than 40 writers, directors, and actors have just 24 hours to write, direct, and memorize six new 10-minute plays. The last stop on the journey is an unforgettable performance at The New Hazlett Theater. Join us for food, libations, performances, music, and a silent auction in Bricolage’s typical raucous style.
Come aboard, take a seat, and watch as the story unfolds. It’s going to be an amazing ride.
Early ticket buyers will have the best seats, so don't wait!

More about B.U.S.
After 10 years of ground-breaking work, Bricolage invites you to help us kick-off the next decade with the most epic fundraiser in town.
This year, B.U.S. is for everyone. We've made lots of changes and we're sure you won't be disappointed. For starters, we've tripled the audience capacity by moving the performance to the New Hazlett Theater. Plus, three ticket levels allow you to choose a ticket that fits your budget. We created the $40 option with artists, students, and young professionals in mind. Supporting Pittsburgh's arts scene is cool, and now it's affordable too!
Bricolage works hard all year to deliver cutting-edge performances that are as diverse as our patrons. When you come to Bricolage, you can be sure that you're getting much more than a good show. You're participating in poignant dialogue or maybe you're laughing until you're crying. Most importantly, you're breaking down the barrier of the seat and the stage, and joining a family of theater lovers who support adventurous performances.
Please join us as we embark on another wild and wonderful journey!
Friday, April 5, 2013 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
