We did it!

THANK YOU Pittsburgh for an AMAZING run of “People of Pittsburgh II: The Constellationist!”

July 12-16, 2023, RealTime Arts (formerly RealTime Interventions) presented the World Premiere of People of Pittsburgh II: The Constellationist— an audio/performance theatrical experience celebrating the life of an extraordinary ordinary Pittsburgher: Mary Helen Carey.

Thank you to friends, family and Pittsburgh theater audiences for coming out to this unique, community-devised, live-art performance! You sold out several nights of our 6-night run, gave our community devising ensemble and Mary the thunderous applause that they deserve, and were a part of the joy of experiencing people from all over Pittsburgh come together in celebration of one of their own.

Thank you to every one of you for your laughter, your tears, your wishes for Mary, and most importantly, your presence. Like Mary says: “All you have to do is be there.”

Thank you to all the publications who wrote about the show!

Coming in September…



Walk With Amal will journey 6000 miles this fall from Boston to San Diego. She will be welcomed by 1,000+ artists at 100+ events in 35 towns and cities.

RealTime is proud to be welcoming Amal to Pittsburgh in September!

Little Amal – whose name means ‘hope’ in Arabic – is a 12 foot puppet of a refugee Syrian child who has traveled to 13 countries. 

She began her journey from the Syrian border and carries a message of hope for displaced people everywhere, especially children who have been separated from their families. 

Her urgent message is simple – “don’t forget us.”

More details will be revealed soon!
