The Understudy - Oct 14 - Nov 2, 2014

Visit The Understudy website

The show must go on—even when everything seems to be going hilariously wrong. It’s the understudy rehearsal for a hit new Broadway play, but the set technician is high, the cocky movie star doesn’t understand the script, and the understudy is surprised to find that the stage manager is his jilted ex-fiancée. Backstage friction takes center stage in a biting comedy about art, celebrity, and the things we do for the business we love. Just another day in the life of an understudy!

Kyle Abraham - October 21-22, 2014
Kyle Abraham and company, Abraham.In.Motion, was invited to inaugurate a new program of dance presentations in the Berlind Theatre with a performance of Pavement. Based on John Singleton’s 1991 film Boyz N the Hood and the writings of W.E.B.DuBois, Pavement uses dance to probe violence, paying comedic homage to the backward jeans and high top fade era in Hip-Hop while reflecting on the growth and loss of Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods. Abraham’s choreography is mesmerizing and articulate in an unclassifiable way.

Simone Dinnerstein, piano - October 22, 2014
Named one of Billboard’s best-selling instrumentalists, Simone’s interpretations of Bach have remained at the core of her musical life. She has become an utterly distinctive voice in the forest of Bach interpreters, probing each variation as if it were something completely new. In 2014 she and Bach hit it big again with her release of his Inventions and Sinfonias, which also spent several weeks at No.1 on the charts.

Cécile McLorin Salvant - October 26, 2014
The sellout sensation of last year’s jazz season, Cécile McLorin Salvant, returns to the Berlind, so here’s another chance to be blown away by the jazz prodigy already hailed as the “next big thing.” Cecile’s landmark year saw the release of her debut CD, WomanChild, plus a Grammy nomination, and critical acclaim exceeding mere hyperbole. She puts original, idiosyncratic, and virtuosic force on old repertory, some of it from the high era of the Great American Songbook, some of it older than jazz itself.
