Roundabout Brewery’s Pop-up Beer Garden on River in Chateau: The Public Streaming ‘The Bergerac Simulation’ (Thurs., 4/15/21)

1) Roundabout Brewery’s Pop-Up Beer Garden is a picturesque stop on the Three Rivers Heritage Trail—a chance to cool down with a cold one after a walk, jog, or bike ride. (If arriving by car, park in the North Franklin Street Trail parking area.) The Kolsch, Pacific Crossing IPA, and Passion Fruit Kveik are some of the popular drafts. Sit back, sip, and watch the barges and boats coast down the Ohio River. Bring your pets Wednesdays and Thursdays starting April 21. A different food truck parks in front each day. Trucks have included Alberta’s Pizza, Franktuary, La Palapa, Blowfish BBQ, and PGH Tortas. Outdoor seating only. A tent provides shade, but the garden will still close due to rain. Be sure to check ahead. If it does rain, one can always purchase bottles, cans, and food at Roundabout’s stellar main location on Butler Street in Lawrenceville. 1836 Oxline St., Chateau. (CM)

2) Pittsburgh Public Theater is continuing it’s PlayTime subseries, Classics N’at tonight with a new commission of Cyrano de Bergerac, titled The Bergerac Simulation, adapted by Mora V. Harris. Directed by Myra Sea Kaminski. The Public describes the production as, “Mora V. Harris’ imaginative update to Edmond Rostand’s French farce Cyrano de Bergerac shows that when we take romance online, it’s easier than ever to get your signals crossed.” The Bergerac Simulation stars Hope Anthony, Amanda Leigh Jerry, Jenny Malarkey, Nicholas Robert Ortiz, Becki Toth, and Marielle Young.

The purpose of this series is to support playwrights in the tri-state area. Donations to view the play start at $10 and include tonight’s live performance and access to the shows video recording through April 18. Simply go to The Public’s PlayTime page. (M.V./R.H.)
