THE PITTSBURGH CULTURAL TRUST ANNOUNCES
AMERICA’S FAVORITE FAST-TALKING TUPPERWARE LADY
IN HER NEW HIT COMEDY
NEVER WEAR A TUBE TOP WHILE RIDING A MECHANICAL BULL
(AND 16 OTHER THINGS I LEARNED WHILE I WAS DRINKING LAST THURSDAY)
FEBRUARY 23-25, 2017 | BYHAM THEATER
Pittsburgh, PA – Audiences will never stop laughing, when America’s favorite fast-talking Tupperware lady Dixie Longate brings her new hit comedy Never Wear A Tube Top While Riding A Mechanical Bull (And 16 Other Things I Learned While I Was Drinking Last Thursday) to the Byham Theater. Presented by 35 Concerts and scheduled for a strictly limited engagement, the production will open on February 23 and play through February 25 in Downtown Pittsburgh.
“A singular phenomenon” (The Des Moines Register) and an “uproarious time, filled to the brim with mile-a-minute jokes” (Buffalo News), Dixie Longate’s newest show swaps Tupperware for a mechanical bull as she takes audiences back to her hometown of Mobile, Alabama. Put on your cowboy boots and walk into her favorite honkytonk as Dixie shares lessons learned after a hard night of drinking.
For over 10 years, theatre-goers and critics around the world have hailed “Dixie’s Tupperware Party” as a non-stop laughter hit, so it’s no surprise that Ms. Dixie has dreamed up a follow-up show that has reviewers cheering and audiences on their feet begging for more fun! Developed by Denver Center for the Performing Arts in the spring of 2014, Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechanical Bull “offers up some real food for thought…with a down-home earthy realness that is especially loveable” (Star-Telegram).
Tickets ($49.75-69.75) are available online at TrustArts.org, by phone at 412-456-6666 or in person at the Theater Square Box Office (655 Penn Avenue, Downtown). Performances will take place at 8:00 p.m. on February 23, 24 and 25, with an additional 2:00 p.m. matinee on February 25.

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
