Pittsburgh in the Round – Theater Notes, August 2021: To mask or not to mask? Ask the question, be decisive.

An informed audience is a safe audience, so here’s the latest on safety protocols for some August theater offerings in Pittsburgh.

As many theaters in our region are gearing up for the move indoors with outdoor shows. Quantum Theatre has already been there for most of June and is headed back again.

The nomadic company that matches environment to content was among the first up for in-person, post-shutdown performances with The Current War  — in a tent, in a park. For that world-premiere musical, patrons were masked, and temperatures were taken upon entry, where people were seated in pods. The company is back in a park, but this time out in the open, at the rink at Schenley Park for An Odyssey, opening Aug. 13. There are no requirements for the general admission seating. Chairs will be placed so groups can create pods, but there will be no escorted seating like there was for The Current War.
