Trinity Cathedral Pittsburgh
World Premiere as part of the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts
Chatterton spreads out in three dimensions, immersing its mobile audiences in the haunting spaces of Trinity Cathedral Pittsburgh. Adapted from Sir Peter Ackroyd’s award-winning book, its plot takes inspiration from the Romantic Era’s most famous suicide, offering a trifecta of poets in three centuries, colorful London with Dickensian characters bristling with humor, and deep debates on what is real and what is fake in the intertwining worlds of art and commerce. Each performance includes a full intermezzo dinner created by the celebrity chef of the week.
