Midnight Radio’s Die Hard N’at

  • December 6 - 22, 2018

  • Free Pre-show Happy Half-hour


Die Hard N'at - a microphone logo for midnight radio is suspended over the title of the show, with a silhouette of a man with a smoking cigarette on a deep red background

Join us as we put a hilarious Pittsburgh spin on what Bruce Willis calls, “not a Christmas movie.” Holiday hijinks ensue as police cars are blown up, skyscraper windows are blown out and John McClane somehow lost his shoes. Welcome to the party, yinz!

In a world where very little makes sense, this holiday season Bricolage Production Company presents an event to rival the nonsense. Strap yourselves in for a Midnight Radio original parody production of the ultimate holiday action thriller…. Die Hard N’at.

A longtime fan favorite, our Midnight Radio series takes the form of a classic 1940s radio broadcast. In this show YOU are cast as the live studio audience, so play your part and don’t miss your cue when the applause sign flashes! Always memorable and never at midnight or on the radio, this series brings you back to a simpler time. Plus! Don’t miss our free Happy Half-hour 30 minutes before every show with free drinks and interactive retro-themed activities!

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the ‘Burgh, not a creature was stirring, except… some jags takin hostages and ruining the office Christmas Party. Who will save the season from total friggin annihilation? Yippee Ki-Yay, Ya Jags!
