New Hazlett Theater hosts Salon 6
“(Pittsburgh) is the Paris of Appalachia. ... If you will allow me, I will speak in your Yinzer English.”
It took a moment before it sunk in that Mademoiselle Belle Haleine, dressed to kill in a frock that would have made any proper Victorian lady swoon, was none other than Tom Sokolowski.
The signature specs are always a giveaway.
Thursday, and the theater was hosting Salon 6, its sixth anniversary party garnished with a 1920s French twist that kicked off with a series of performances by internationally renowned violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR), the Texture Contemporary Ballet, actor-comedian Alan Olifson, cabaret and jazz singer Trevor McQueen, acrobat Erin the Aerialist, and jazz musician Mark Flaherty.
Afterward, executive director Rene Conrad mingled with the likes of Ken and board prez Pam McCrory, Corey LeChat, Sara Aros, Michele de la Reza, Charlie Humphrey, Evan Rosenberg, Bill and MaryAnn King and Mike Sullivan for a champagne reception.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
