Age of Steam Night at Pittsburgh Public Theater

Ron Bohmer as Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days at Pittsburgh Public TheaterGet out your waistcoats, goggles, and pocket watches. The Pittsburgh Public Theater is having a charming steampunk event next Friday before the evening’s performance of Around the World in 80 Days.

Age of Steam Night at Pittsburgh Public Theater. Friday, April 27. Before the 8 pm performance of AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS. The first 20 patrons who arrive decked in steampunk attire or accessories will receive a complimentary DVD of the movie HUGO. The DVDs will be available in The Pub, on the O’Reilly Theater’s second floor, beginning at 7 pm. Tickets: 412.316.1600 or ppt.org. (DVDs limited to the first 20 patrons deemed appropriately dressed by The Public Theater staff.)

I don’t have any steampunk clothing, but I’m a fan of the look — any outfit that includes a frock coat or peplum is grand in my eyes.

The play looks to be quite a charmer as well. Extravagant and clever, with witty sets and props and a stellar cast. 

Around the World in 80 Days runs through May 13. Find out more and buy tickets at the Pittsburgh Public Theater website.
