    As one of the most progressive theater companies in town, Quantum Theatre is continuously surprising audiences with new and exciting works. Now, the company is producing InQbator, a new play-reading series that gives audiences an early look at Lyon’s Den, written by Pittsburgh playwright TJ Parker-Young and directed by Ali Hoefnagel. Just like other Quantum productions, this performance takes place in an atypical theater setting: among the beer taps at Braddock taproom and brewery, Brew Gentlemen.

    Six years ago, Pittsburgh-native Jon Daly debuted a character named Don in a sketch called "Pawnsylvania" on Comedy Central's Kroll Show. It's a reality TV show following Don's Pittsburgh pawn shop and its rivalry with his cousin Murph's in Philadelphia, but really it's just an excuse for Daly and Nick Kroll to bust out some of the most extreme Pennsylvania accents to ever order a sandwich at a gas station. Kroll is from New York, but all of Daly's yinzerisms are earned: He was born here and got his start doing improv at the University of Pittsburgh. Look it up if you haven't seen it, and keep an ear out for his flawless "dahns" and "yois." Daly, who returns to Pittsburgh for a musical comedy revue at Club Cafe, currently has a role on Big Mouth and has made appearances on Bob's Burgers, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Drunk History, as well as a 2018 video with Pittsburgh Dad.
