3) Mr. Joy is a solo show written by the New York-based playwright Daniel Beaty, who often draws his material from the everyday life of Harlem’s neighborhoods. The play centers on a shoe repair shop founded by a Chinese immigrant whose value to the community becomes evident one fateful day when customers arrive to find the shop closed. Actress Tangela Large plays all the parts, ranging from a budding young shoe designer to a “gangsta granny.” The show has been workshopped in New York and elsewhere, and Pittsburgh’s City Theatre is giving Mr. Joy its full-blown world premiere. 2 p.m. Closes today. 13th and Bingham streets, South Side.
