A newer space, with bar and full menu, offering live music and small-scale theatrical shows in an intimate setting.
Set to open in September 2009, this cultural center is named after the famed playwright, who grew up in Pittsburgh and made it the setting of his famous Century Cycle of 10 plays, one per decade. As ambitious as its namesake, the facility will offer space for exhibits and live performance, as well as classes and seminars.
