PIGPEN THEATRE CO. Sunday, July 31, 4pm Best for ages 8+
PigPen Theatre Co. began creating their unique brand of theatre, music, and film as freshmen at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama in 2007. Their debut album, “Bremen,” was named #10 album of the year in The Huffington Post’s 2012 Grammy preview sending PigPen on tour playing to sold-out crowds across the country. American Songwriter premiered their follow-up EP, “The Way I’m Running,” in 2013 while the band was playing a series of concerts that became one of the most popular residencies of the past decade at the legendary Schuba’s Tavern in Chicago. In 2015, PigPen released their sophomore album, "Whole Sun," performed at Mumford & Sons' return to the Gentlemen of the Road Festival, and made their feature film debut in Jonathan Demme's "Ricki and the Flash" starring Meryl Streep. They are currently writing their debut children’s novel and spent the spring performing Shakespeare's “Pericles” directed by Sir Trevor Nunn at Theatre For A New Audience in Brooklyn, New York.
