ABOUT CITY THEATRE:
Founded in 1975, City Theatre is in its 46th season as Pittsburgh’s home for bold new plays. Located in the historic South Side on its four-building cultural campus, the company produces a season of regional and world premieres; its renowned Young Playwrights Festival, now in its 21st year; a season-long reading series of new works in progress; and the annual Momentum Festival. City Theatre’s mission is to provide an artistic home for the development and production of contemporary plays of substance and ideas that engage and challenge a diverse audience. Its vision is to be the best mid-sized theater in America. Organizational Core Values are: Community; Collaboration; Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility; and Creativity.
With an annual average operating budget of $3 million, City Theatre is the largest performing arts organization not located in Pittsburgh’s downtown Cultural District and is a constituent and core member of the League of Resident Theaters (LORT), Theatre Communications Group (TCG), and the National New Play Network (NNPN). Marc Masterson returned as Artistic Director in July 2018, after an 18-year absence, to join Managing Director James McNeel as co-leaders of the organization. It is governed by an engaged board of 21 community volunteers (Alex Condron, board president).
Like almost all arts organizations, City Theatre was forced to halt its 2019-2020 season in the middle of March due to the Covid-19 national crisis. Its modified 46th season began in September with a reimagined line-up of shows, including the creation of a live, outdoor drive-in theatrical experience (making City Theatre one of just a few organizations nation-wide to find a safe way to perform before in-person audiences) as well as a suite of original digital content.
