The Rep has two premieres for upcoming season

| Thursday, June 12, 2014, 8:55 p.m.

The Rep, Point Park University's professional theater company, will present two world premieres by Pittsburgh playwrights during its 2014-15 season.

The season, which runs from Sept. 4 to April 12, 2015, opens with the classic “Of Mice and Men” by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck. Acclaimed Hollywood producer, director and screenwriter Robert A. Miller will direct the play about two migrant workers and their dream of settling down one day. It runs from Sept. 4 to 21.

The season's other shows include:

• “Souvenir,” Sept. 25 to Oct. 12. The play recounts the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, an eccentric wealthy socialite who believed she was a great soprano when, in fact, her voice made people cringe. Despite this, fans flocked to her shows.

• “Prussia: 1886,” Feb. 5 to 22, 2015. This world premiere by Pittsburgh comedian Gab Cody is a farce about philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and his proto-feminist friends.

• “Endless Lawns,” March 26 to April 12, 2015. Carnegie Mellon University professor Anthony McKay wrote this world-premiere play about two sisters and the men who love and care for them.

Season subscriptions are available for $64 to $72. Single tickets, ranging from $24 to $27, will go on sale Aug. 4.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
