New York City, 1964. The tape is rolling when Born Yesterday star Judy Holliday lays down a series of tracks about her rise to fame amidst the politics of the 1950s.

A woman hell-bent on revenge on all men snares Pip, a kindhearted boy, in her wicked web, with the beautiful Estella as bait.

Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for stage with the best parts of Pip’s adventure.

Join Maestro Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for the first of three weekends devoted to Beethoven's life and works. This concert features two of Beethoven's most-loved symphonies.
