We took took a break from the Sunday tradition of Chaining Yourself To The TV Set And Watching The Steelers today. Instead, we went into downtown Pittsburgh to check out the Christmas Village that has been set up in Market Square, and to have lunch and catch the matinee performance of "Murder for Two" at the CLO Cabaret.
First off, we were surprised at just how many people were in downtown Pittsburgh at Noon on a Sunday afternoon. It was beautiful day, quite cold, but clear and sunny, but the number of people in Market Square still surprised us.
Secondly, the CLO's Cabaret Theater is a terrific venue. Comfortable and intimate, and perfect for the types of shows that the CLO stages there. You can even dine there before the show, which we did today.
Thirdly, "Murder for Two" is quite a fun little show. Only two performers, one of whom played all ten "suspects" in this musical murder mystery. Two very talented actors in a rather clever show. If you are looking for a fun and entertaining night out during the Holiday season, you could do a lot worse than taking in this show.
