  • On stage: Bugs of biblical proportions

    Two new plays in Pittsburgh offer thought-provoking stories. Bug, which opened last Friday in Oakland, slices close to the heart and may not be for everyone. On the other hand, Thorton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth is truly timeless. Somehow, the same issues that are featured in a play written in 1942 apply to contemporary history: global warming, moral corruption, and the war on terror.

  • Double the design

    Last week, two lectures had the same bottom line: Design matters. Wednesday, in Newell-Simon Hall, the Human-Computer Interaction Institute hosted Jared M. Spool, a founder at the research and consulting design firm User Interface Engineering. Spool used examples from the Internet on how (and how not) to design a website.

  • Cosby brings his sweaters to Heinz Hall

    Lively jazz filled Heinz Hall Saturday night as the audience filled seats in anticipation for Bill Cosby. A grandfatherly faded sweatshirt with “Hello Friend” in colorfully stitched lettering was draped over an arm chair that welcomed the audience before Cosby even stepped on stage.
