“You probably won’t find a funnier evening in town” – Time OUT NY
 
We are excited to announce that Broadway pianist/conductor/actor, Emmy nominated comedy writer and SiriusXM‘s “On Broadway” host Seth Rudetsky is coming to Pittsburgh with his hilarious one man show “Rhapsody in Seth” on Monday, April 22 and Tuesday, April 23 at the Oaks Theater in Oakmont. VIP and general admission tickets can be purchased at www.PittsburghPride.org/tickets
 
Rhapsody in Seth recounts Seth’s voyage from school outcast on Long Island to achieving his childhood dream of living in NYC and working on Broadway! Seth opens the show by admitting that some say “living well is the best revenge”, however, he feels that telling his story and “using real names” is even better!
 
The show takes you from Seth’s tales of woe to tales of triumph as he plays the piano, lip-syncs, and even uses hilarious video footage of himself jazz dancing in leg warmers at age 17! Seth’s adoration of the great divas’ (Patti LuPone!) his family’s quirks (taking him at age 7 to see “Death Wish” and “Taxi Driver”), the pain of coming out, a once-admired teacher’s betrayal, and his joy at leaving the oppressive school environment and finding acceptance within the musical theatre world he dreamed of all come across in a “heartbreaking and hilarious!’ (The Advocate) 90-minute one-man-show!
 
“Funny as it is poignant…a star who is compelling, endearing and inherently hilarious. You will not likely see another one-person show this year to equal its humor and humanity.” -TheatreMania
