4:22    Sarah Aziz

The Three Rivers Arts Festival was relocated to the city’s cultural district with art surrounding two square blocks on Penn between 6th and 7th Street and another one on Fort Duquesne. Stay tuned for jazz at the Backyard Stage on 8th and Penn Street to continue through September. As soon as the 10-day festival ends, there will be one food and drink vendor remaining at the Backyard Stage for four months! Sarah highlights where to park, how to navigate traffic, and how best to get where you want to go on foot. She’s TRAF’s walking app. This Saturday, watch out for performances by Goody Mob and CeeLo Green!

25:13    Ranney

If you’re a Pittsburgher, his name is spelled Ranney, but pronounced ‘Rainey,’ and while he doesn’t love ice cream, this artist works with the Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company Theater of Black and White. In the beginning, it was a group of black playwrights with white directors, and white playwrights with black directors, but NOW it includes playwrights and directors from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The organization hosts six plays, and to close out TRAF, they have one piece by the legendary August Wilson that Ranney will be performing himself!  Head to 805 Liberty Ave. on the weekends at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays to catch a show!
