Pittsburgh CLO Announces ‘tick tick … Boom!’ Musical and R-rated ‘Who’s Holiday!’ Comedy Reopening Greer Cabaret

Do you feel a hint of autumn in the air?

It may be hot as Hadestown outside, but back to school shopping is in high gear, and in the Pittsburgh Cultural District, it’s nearly time to Greer up, too. 

Pittsburgh CLO announced a Fall Into Holidays schedule of shows that includes the reopening of the newly renovated Greer Cabaret Theater’s Kara Cabaret Series, beginning September 22-October 22 with Jonathan Larson’s tick, tick… BOOM! and concluding 2023 with Matthew Lombardo’s Who’s Holiday!, December 1-31.

While the latter isn’t your typical Dr. Seuss tale – it’s described as “a raucous and raunchy holiday comedy about Cindy Lou Who, now grown-up and freshly out of jail – a family-oriented holiday tradition continues.

We know the story, even as we await the announcement of who will portray Scrooge in 2023. In recent years, the show has attracted Broadway stars such as Michael Cerveris, Patrick Page, Richard Thomas and Mark Jacoby (the latter currently in A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Story), among a sea of local actors. There will be a specially adapted Sensory Friendly Performance on December 23.
