'Game of Thrones' actor attends PICT party

Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Pittsburgh Irish & Classical Theatre did the impossible Oct. 28, luring a crowd of 250 out on a Monday and rewarding them with a party that wowed with a weekend vibe. Even better, the second wave of revelers arrived at 9 p.m., costumed and ready to take full advantage of a ticket that was genius-priced at $35 in an effort to appeal to the younger demographic.

As if that weren't enough, a cameo by “Game of Thrones” sadistic boy king Jack Gleeson nearly put the crowd over the edge.

“It's my first time here. ... I love it,” said the Irish-born actor, making his debut in Pittsburgh amid much swooning from fans, mothers of fans and grandmothers of fans.

Co-chairs Karen and Michael Burns and Karen and Richard Miller did the honors, welcoming awardees Ray Werner and Sara Steelman, producing artistic director Alan Stanford, Robert Levin and Kerry Bron, Richard Rauh, Cindy Berger and Larry Green, David Whalen, Bingo O'Malley, Margie and Alan Baum, and Stephanie Riso and Tony Richards.
