Abigail/1702 Opens at City (CP’s Fri. 5/10/13)

1) Abigail/1702 is a new play that answers the question: “Remember that girl in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible — the really witchy one, Abigail Williams, who started the trouble that led to the Salem witch trials, then booted it out of town to save her neck while the other girls were being hanged — what ever happened to her?” This spooky sequel is written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, directed by Tracy Brigden, and presented at City Theatre.  8 p.m. Through May 26.  1300 Bingham St.,  South Side.

2) The Fox and the Fairway, a play about two great things, love and golf,  is based locally and outlines a fictional battle between members at The Pittsburgh Field Club and Fox Chapel Golf Club for golf bragging rights and some betting money. However, love enters and complicates the characters’ plans. It’s written by Ken Ludwig, directed by Teresa Trich and produced by Stage Right Community Theatre. 8 p.m. Ends tomorrow. Boyd Community Center, 1220 Powers Run Rd., O’Hara Township.

3) Winner of a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, Clybourne Park chronicles the same Chicago house in two different years: 1959 and 2009. In the first act, the plot revolves around a black family who move into a white neighborhood. In Act Two, fast forward 50 years and the issue is white gentrification in the now black neighborhood. Written by Bruce Norris and directed by Pamela Berlin, it’s a funny play with sharp elbows that explores personal and neighborhood dynamics.  8 p.m. Runs through May 19. O’Reilly Theater, 621 Penn Ave., Cultural District.

4) Dancing Queen will put people on the dance floor at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. The disco/funk band takes the stage at 9 p.m. 103 Slade ln., Warrendale.

5) Smokin’ Section, a hot R & B band, plays the Wheelhouse Bar just off the smoky main floor of the River’s Casino. 9 p.m. – 1 a.m. No cover. 777 Casino Dr. North Shore.
