Quantum Theatre

Various venues

This API is deprecated, please upgrade to

Quantum brings theater to Pittsburgh in the most literal sense – by staging environmental productions in non-theatrical spaces all around the city. In the world of the Quantum Theatre, stories unfold in the most unlikely places, be it a museum, an old car dealership, an abandoned building, or an industrial site. Quantum artists develop their productions in these spaces, creating truly original dramas that become a part of the landscape, and giving brand new life and meaning to established plays and musicals. The added details that come from these real-life settings – the street noise, the lighting, the sunset, or a night breeze – make the audience feel as if it’s immersed in the performance. It’s a nice change of pace from the confines of the proscenium and the black box… but be aware, you may need to bring a jacket.
