‘Who Do You Love?' tells ancient story

The story of Esther gets a contemporary re-telling in “Who Do You Love?” It will have its Pittsburgh premiere this weekend at the New Hazlett Theater on the North Side.

Written by Shaundra Miles, who also serves as the vice president of programming at the August Wilson Center, “Who Do You Love?” is a tale of a woman who unexpectedly gains everything and is then forced to choose between the life of her dreams and losing her life for the sake of her people.

“It's about the great mystery of love and marriage. It's also about social issues and the history of the relationship between church and state within the context of black communities … we are all called for a purpose,” Miles says. “God has commanded us all, and ultimately we all have to choose the extent to which we will travel to answer the call.”

Performances: 8 p.m. today and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the New Hazlett Theater, Allegheny Square East, North Side. Admission: $20.

Details: 888-718-4253 or www.demaskus.showclix.com
