Pittsburgh's City Theatre Company is offering special “Westmoreland Day” admission on March 16 for the play “Citizens Market.”

The play, centered around a New York City neighborhood supermarket, will begin at 8 p.m. at the theater, 1300 Bingham St. in Pittsburgh's South Side. The City Theatre run, from March 3 through 25, is its world premiere.

Written by New York City-based actress and playwright Cori Thomas, “Citizens Market” follows the lives of hopeful immigrants as they navigate life in the city that never sleeps and “celebrates an ever-shifting and eclectic America,” according to a news release.

An after-party with complimentary food and beverages will give guests the opportunity to meet cast members.

The evening is offered in collaboration with the YWCA Westmoreland County, Seton Hill University and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

“Westmoreland Day” admission is $30 for ticket-buyers using the code WESTMORELAND.

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.
