This show and theater are hidden gems in downtown Pittsburgh. The Smallest Show is usually the 3rd Saturday at 7pm. A mixture of music, music, stories, audience participation, and always fun. I’m a regular fan but all feel part of the show.

The Gallery Crawl is a time to sample the cultural arts of Pittsburgh and this 30 minute improve presentation at the Arcade was wonderful. If I'm back in Pitt I'll be sure to come for a full show...the talent here is very good.

Intimate, very clean venue with great views from all seats. Welcome to bring your own wine. (They uncork it for you.) Prices are very reasonable and the comedy is top-notch. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and will make of point of going back.

We really enjoyed the many acts on Friday night. Be sure to order tickets online to benefit with saving some $ on byob corkage. We will definitely return on our next visit!

This little non profit theater is a bit of a secret in Pittsburgh. In the heart of the cultural district and near restaurants and public transit. Make a date night or go with friends. Get your tickets in advance and BYOB for the best prices....More
