The Current War
Quantum Theatre announces its plans to lead a return to live performance with The Current War, by Michael Mitnick, a world premiere musical staged outdoors for socially distant audiences in Westinghouse Park June 4 – 27, 2021.
The Current War tells the story of the rivalry between Pittsburgh’s own George Westinghouse and Thomas Edison at the dawn of the 20th century. With a turn-of-the-last-century aesthetic, this world premiere musical makes the metaphorical boxing ring battle between Westinghouse and Edison literal and electrified.
The first professional theatre production in the region since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Current War will be staged for small socially distanced audiences outdoorsView more
To provide the safest possible experience for audience members, and to ensure that social distancing requirements can be maintained at all times, seats to The Current War will be sold exclusively in 2, 3, and 4 seat pods. Please see the website for more details on pod pricing.
