  Description:   A great neighborhood deserves a great theater. That’s the corner­stone of Kelly Strayhorn Theater (KST). Named for two of Pittsburgh’s most celebrated talents in the last century—dancer Gene Kelly and composer Billy Strayhorn—KST contributes to the renaissance of East Liberty and redefines theater with provocative, original programming and a social experience unlike any other venue in the region. KST is celebrating its centennial anniversary in 2014–2015, a time to reflect on our role in the vibrant and diverse cultural history of Pittsburgh’s East Liberty. The Kelly Strayhorn Theater is a destination for innovative works in dance, theater, music and live art. KST encourages diverse, inclusive, and high-quality, artistic, cultural and educational activities through the Alloy School, artSEEDS student matinees, and artist residency programs. By nurturing these pursuits, we contribute to cultural understanding, quality of life, as well as economic development in our community, county, city, and region.
