Pittsburgh Public Theater’s Red Hot Gala

Pittsburgh Public Theater’s A Red Hot Gala takes place on Saturday, May 7, at Downtown’s Westin Convention Center Hotel, co-chaired by J. Rich Alexander, Executive Vice President of PPG Industries and Kari & Steven Guy, President and CEO of Oxford Development Company.

The theme of this year’s fundraiser anticipates The Public’s upcoming season, which will include a new production of Red, John Logan’s 2010 Tony Award-winner about the artist Mark Rothko.

Set to a hot Latin beat, Cocktail Hour will feature exquisite hors d’oeuvres, performances by ballroom dancers, living art works, and interactive digital photography that will allow guests to “star” in next season’s shows. This will be followed by A Dinner to Arouse Your Palate, An Auction to Awaken Your Desire, and A Performance to Electrify Your Senses starring Hayden Tee, the king of Camelot.

At 9 pm, the guests will become the stars of the ballroom and dance the night away. All proceeds benefit Pittsburgh Public Theater programming. Tickets are available by contacting Maureen Keane at 412.316.8200 ext. 723 or
