VIP Meet & Greet

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our venues and events. The safety of our guests, staff, and artists is of paramount importance, and in continued response to Governor Wolf's order, effective March 19, 2020 until further notice, to prohibit the operation of all businesses that are not life-sustaining, we have come to the extremely difficult decision to suspend additional Pittsburgh Cultural Trust events, extending through June 14.

As a result, Ira Glass has been cancelled. Ticket buyers were contacted by email on March 24, 2020. Please check your email for ticket options from the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust (noreply@trustarts.org). We appreciate your response within two weeks. If we have not connected with you, please Contact Us.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we process a large number of requests.


Seven Things I’ve Learned

“Mr. Glass is a journalist but also a storyteller who filters his interviews and impressions through a distinctive literary imagination, an eccentric intelligence, and a sympathetic heart..” —The New York Times

Ira Glass, the beloved host and creator of iconic public radio program This American Life, invites us into his creative process, mixing audio clips, music, and video to tell captivating stories live onstage, and sharing lessons and insights gathered over his career. This American Life is heard each week by over 2.2 million listeners on more than 500 public radio stations, with another 2.5 million downloading each podcast.

Under Glass’s editorial direction, This American Life has won the highest honors for broadcasting and journalistic excellence, including six Peabody awards. In 1999, the American Journalism Review declared that This American Life was “in the vanguard of a journalistic revolution” and, since then, a generation of podcasts and radio shows have sprung up — Radiolab, Invisibilia, StartUp, Reply All, Love + Radio, Heavyweight — building on the style of narrative journalism championed by Glass and his staff.
