Similar in vein to Bricolage‘s “Midnight Radio” series, this production contains staged commercials and period musical numbers for a live Pittsburgh audience. The script is “an original adaptation of the 1934 film The Thin Man, originally starring Pittsburgh native William Powell and Myrna Loy as sleuths Nick and Nora Charles.”

‘The Thin Man Comes to Pittsburgh’ is produced by Advanced Labor & Cultural Studies, an organization that “seeks to deconstruct received notions of work and examine the value and meaning that society places on labor and capital.” Their first run of Thin Man was held at The Carnegie Library of Homestead to positive reviews. Attendee Sue Pollick states: “Truly enjoyable script, cast and show. Extremely talented cast! Portrayal of the Thin Man Radio broadcast was excellent,as well as being written for Pittsburgh, You can see how passionate the written word was! Musicians were also extremely talented! Well rounded show!”
