Steelers vs. Ravens; ‘The Carols’ at Carnegie Stage (Sun., 12/10/17)
1) The Steelers, coming off a big victory in their recent Sunday night prize fight when they went four rounds with the Cincy Bungles. Tonight another bitter division rival come in to try and best our Steelers. Go Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens! 8:30 p.m. Heinz Field, 100 Art Rooney Ave., North Shore.
2) Every so often there comes a show about people putting on a show. The 1982 comic play Noises Off is one; Fellini’s 8½ is another, a movie about making a movie … and now we have The Carols. In this musical stage comedy, three women are co-directing a community production of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The setting is a New Jersey town in 1944. Most of the men who could play the male roles are away at war, but the gals forge ahead, with results that are said to be both humorous and heartwarming. Jennifer Childs and Pittsburgh-based composer Monica Stephenson wrote The Carols for Philadelphia’s 1812 Productions. 3 p.m. Continues through December 17. Carnegie Stage is presenting it at 25 W. Main St., Carnegie. (MV)
