The revue of Sondheim's music had been scheduled to play through Aug. 14. But when given the opportunity to open “Defending the Caveman” earlier, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera administrators chose to reschedule.

“Defending the Caveman” will now open Aug. 1 and run through Oct. 20.

Checking out the local eagle

Before you watch fireworks on July 4, you can check out America's national bird, the bald eagle, at the Hays bald eagle nest.

Representatives of the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 4 with spotting scopes and binoculars, to help you view the two adult bald eagles and the rare little eaglet that hatched in mid-April.

The nest stands along the Monongahela River. To get there, walk or bike from the Hot Metal Bridge in the South Side along the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. Don't walk along the railroad or park in the Sandcastle parking lot, though; these areas are private property. Details: www.aswp.org
