Second Annual Carol R. Brown Creative Achievement Awards
honor Roger Humphreys and Tami Dixon

The propulsion of the story keeps you riveted from beginning to end
The Orson Welles radio presentation of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, in an adaptation by Howard Koch, has been in the news recently because it's the 75th anniversary of this show-biz legend: Told through a series of "we interrupt this broadcast" news bulletins about an invasion from Mars, the program was so real (and/or people are so stupid) that some believed a Martian attack was underway.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have a grave announcement to make. Incredible as it may seem, both the observations of science and the evidence of our eyes lead to the inescapable assumption that those strange beings who landed in the Jersey farmlands tonight are the vanguard of an invading army from the planet Mars.
When we originally conceived of the idea to attend three small-venue shows this year, we were only thinking about the number of intimate concert venues in Pittsburgh. But one thing that’s fabulous about this city is that we also have a number of intimate live theater venues – City Theater, the O’Reilly, and the New Hazlett Theater just to name a few.
Fans of Bricolage, local theater and Shakespeare will be delighted to learn of our next giveaway. We were invited to live tweet last week during their Midnight Radio season five premiere, Shakesburgh – a string of Pittsburgh stories with a Shakespearean twist.
Swords are crossed and no holds are barred as Bricolage Production Company skewers Shakespeare in the season opening production of its Midnight Radio series.
For those joining this series in progress, it's important to know that the productions are neither at midnight nor on the radio.
Midnight Radio, Jr is an interactive radio show/experience/play and workshop full of awesome, for kids of any age.
I was invited to come and see the show and asked to share my experiences with you guys.
Midnight Radio Jr.: Underwater Voyage is a Hit with the Critics! (my kids)
Local Pittsburgh kids looking for a memorable and entertaining family show better get downtown to Midnight Radio Jr. by Bricolage Production Company. They invited our family to attend a show on the house and share our thoughts afterwards. The critics (my boys) gave rave reviews and repeated the words "awesome," "fun" and "cool" over and over.
I love visiting new places - especially when they are right in my backyard! So I'm really excited to take the family to a production of Midnight Radio Jr. presented by Bricolage Production Co. on Saturday July 27.
Last summer, I didn't just "go to a show" done by Bricolage - I participated fully in the show Strata. If you live in Pittsburgh you may remember the posters with headshots of people in silver jumpsuits, expressing statements of happiness and contentment. That show was phenomenal, unforgettable, emotionally and psychologically engaging. I truly was transformed.
