"The Kreutzer Sonata" ... with special ticket discount offer

From Nancy McNary Smith: "Martin Giles gave the performance of a lifetime in his role in The Kreutzer Sonata. This role and this performance was a transformation beyond comprehension. There was not a stock response; every gesture, movement, intonation, every bit of timing -- was new, true, un-nervingly on mark. He had the audience in his palm, from the first seconds of the performance to the end.

This has to be one of the most amazing theater experiences of my 40 years in Pittsburgh, subscribing to most of the theaters in town. I'm so glad I was there."

In "The Kreutzer Sonata" audiences travel with Pozdynyshev, an enigmatic stranger weaving a tale of love, loss and betrayal.

Hear his sensuous wife playing piano while his old friend plays violin, the Kreutzer Sonata between them, powerful and evocative.

Was this music the soundtrack to their illicit passion, or has Pozdynyshev made a terrible mistake?

Irish playwright Nancy Harris has transformed Tolstoy's classic novella into a theatrical experience you'll not soon forget.

This Pittsburgh premiere stars Martin Giles with an unforgettable performance featuring Beethoven's masterpiece performed by violinist Juan Jaramillo and pianist Alaine Fink.

SPECIAL DISCOUNT FOR MEETUP: $26/ticket (INCLUDES FEE) which is nearly 50% off saving as compared to the normal $48 ticket price. Use code PICTMEET when purchasing your tickets online at www.picttheatre.org

Select the Wednesday, June 20 or Saturday June 22 date, and enter the PICTMEET code at checkout.

Meetup will also have the option to gather at The Porch before the show at 6pm and mingle with fellow theatre-lovers, then walk across the street to the Henry Heymann Theatre (in the Stephen Foster Memorial) for the show.

The play runs about 90 minutes (with no intermission) so we will also have the option to meet for a drink after the performance.

    Much as I hate to say it - I was really expecting to enjoy the play, but sadly found it a bit... tedious. The production was great, I think it could just be the play itself... Thank you though for organizing and meeting with us beforehand, that was really nice. I'll definitely try another PICT production, though.
