Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship Begins; ‘One Woman Sex and the City’ Parody at August Wilson Ctr. (Wed., 3/8/17)
1) Pittsburgh is hosting the 2017 Atlantic Ten Men’s Basketball Championship Grab an up-close look at the action starting today as #12 seed Massachusetts takes on #13 Saint Joseph’s at 6 p.m. and #11 Saint Louis tips off against hometown favorite #14 Duquesne beginning at 8:30 p.m. The action continues with playoff games through Saturday. Then the two teams left standing play each other in the Championship finale game 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. The #1 tournament seed is the University of Dayton Flyers. PPG Paints Arena, 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown.
2) If you loved Sex and the City or never watched it but always wanted to, then here’s your chance to witness all six seasons condensed into One Woman Sex and the City, a one-person parody/tribute. Co-creator Kerry Ipema plays Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. She has worked with co-creator and director TJ Dawe before on PostSecret: The Show. Dawe, for his part, knows his one-person productions, particularly those based on pop culture. He directed and co-created One Man Star Wars Trilogy and One Man Lord of the Rings. There is audience participation, so it may behoove you to watch (or rewatch) some key episodes, such as the one with the naked dress or the whole “he’s-just-not-that-into-you” installment. This touring show makes its stop at the August Wilson Center tonight only with performances at 7 and 9 p.m. 980 Liberty Ave., Cultural District, (CM)
