Quantum Theatre

Quantum Theatre

Quantum Theatre is a company of progressive, professional artists dedicated to producing intimate and sophisticated theatrical experiences in uncommon settings, exploring universal themes of truth, beauty, and human relationships in unexpected ways. 

Now in its 23rd season, Quantum continues to create adventurous, environmental productions of plays all over the city of Pittsburgh. Original works, contemporary international plays or updated classics are brought intimately close in settings like groves of trees, abandoned mills, grand museums, or empty swimming pools. The plays unite directors, performers, and designers from all over the world with Pittsburgh's most talented artists.
