This is the first time Cassidy has appeared in the Pittsburgh area in more than 35 years, and the Barrow is bringing it to you! “The house sold out over two-weeks before opening,” says General Manager John Miller.

“The sponsors behind this event are the real heroes who truly made this very special event possible,” he says. The sponsors include The R.J. Porterfield Family, Joy Manufacturing, The Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts, Rosie Petulla, Chris & Randy Shaw, Dr. David Femovich, The Franklin Fine Arts Council, The Franklin Retail Association, Feldman’s Jewelers, Franklin Insurance, The Bert Company, Schake Industries, Timothy E. Hardle Funeral Home, Joe Liotta, Pioneer Electric and one anonymous donor on top of it all!

Miller continues, “The concert serves as a testament to what a community can do when it pulls together to get things done.”

Cassidy made a striking resurrection in 1990 with a new, self-titled album and top 40 hit single Lyin’ To Myself that led to his visible and viable career ever since! Having performed on Broadway in the theatrical giant Blood Brothers, Cassidy also broke records in Las Vegas during the 90’s and beyond with sellout performances of the highly successful EFX. Also having produced two other Vegas hits, “The Rat-Pack Is Back,” and “At The Copa,” Cassidy is set to star in an upcoming TV series on ABC Family Channel titled “Ruby & The Rockits.” The pilot, which stars Cassidy and brother Patrick, is written by yet another famous Cassidy brother--Shaun! Tune in! It’s certain to be a new generation of family fun with the Cassidy brothers!

The setting of the play is 1935 Alabama, during the great depression. The story: small town attorney takes on a court case defending a black man wrongly accused of rape. The most affected person in this drama turns out to be his young daughter Scout, who finds herself coming of age through her father’s dynamic and gripping ordeal.

The cast includes Jamie Agnello, Ben Bodamer, Gabriela Frederick, Peg Hennessy, Nick Keeley, Izaak Lamphere, Abby Larimore, William G. Martin, Megan Wambolt, Mary Anne Wilkinson, Ed Ramage, Joseph Crosley, Kim Tarr, Nicholas Switzer and Richard Roberts doing double-duty as both Director and Actor as he takes on the lead role of Atticus Finch.
