A message to our patrons regarding COVID-19

Ticket Update


Dear Friends,

WE HAVE NEWS! In fact - lots of news, so grab your calendars and settle in for an exciting couple of years!

Thank you again for your patience as we’ve worked diligently through this crisis to stay connected with you, and envision an even brighter future for Pittsburgh Public Theater. All of our calendars have looked a little different for the past few weeks (to say the least), but we’re ready to fill them in with several months of joyful events. The information below is divided into three sections. If one section doesn’t apply to your situation, please keep reading, and you’ll find the answers to many of your burning questions.

First up, an update on BAREFOOT IN THE PARK.

Slip off your shoes and dream a little with us, won’t you? Can you imagine BAREFOOT IN THE PARK...in the park? We can! We’re working hard to transform this dream into a reality for 2021. 

Over these past few months we’ve heard from many of you who have chosen to either donate your tickets or wait until a production of this classic Neil Simon comedy is brought to life. If you haven’t made a decision yet, there’s still time! By choosing to donate your tickets, you’ll have first access to BAREFOOT IN THE PARK live in person, and exclusive VIP treatment in “the park” (seriously!) when the time comes.

If you have questions, you’re welcome to contact our Box Office team at boxoffice@ppt.org or 412.316.1600. They’re safely working from home during this time, and your patience is so appreciated as they work hard to answer your inquiry as soon as possible.

Thank you again for your ongoing support of Pittsburgh Public Theater. We hope to see you soon and often.

Marya Sea Kaminski, Artistic Director
