Playing through May 10
Faithful opening night subscribers, enthusiastic board members, and members of the Pittsburgh theatre community came out to celebrate the opening of Keith Reddin’s HUMAN ERROR last night (Wednesday, April 8th).
Before the show the lounge was slammed with friends of the theatre throwing back drinks and enjoying food provided by our friend and restaurant neighbor, Gypsy Cafe.
After the thrilling opening, the celebration continued at Elixir on Carson Street as the director Tracy Brigden, playwright Keith Reddin, and cast, including Tasha Lawrence, Ray Anthony Thomas, and Matt Walton chatted up the opening night audience.
Included here are some pictures from the production which runs through May10th.
See you at the theatre!
The scenic design created by Luke Cantarella to be built in our Lester Hamburg Studio Theatre features a wall of light-boxes covered in an abstracted image of sky and field. The light-boxes are illuminated from behind and can move to provide a wide range of backdrops for the play’s multiple locations. The play begins in an open field with two NTSB agents (plane crash investigators) exploring the aftermath of a crash. Soon the action moves to a bar, hotel room, and hospital. In the model below you can get a sense of how the light-boxes work to create a compelling backdrop for not only the exterior scenes but the interior ones as well.

Last week marked the beginning of rehearsals for Human Error. We were pleased to have playwright Keith Reddin join director Tracy Brigden and cast members Tasha Lawrence, Ray Anthony Thomas and Matt Walton in the rehearsal room. Costume Designer Ange Vesco and Resident Sound Engineer Liz Atkinson were also in attendence.
After Keith Reddin spoke about the genesis of the play, Ange Vesco touched on her ideas for the costumes and Tracy Brigden shared the model of Luke Cantarella’s set design. Rehearsal then began with a read-through of the play…we’re off to another great start!
