If you grew up watching the legendary 1970s-era Steelers, a ticket to "Rock Tales & Cocktails - a fundraiser for Crossroads Foundation" makes for a great night of theater while at the same time helping Crossroads. (Or if you have a parent who grew up a Steelers fan in the 1970s, this event makes a perfect Christmas gift!)
The ticket price includes prime seating to watch Rocky Bleier perform as himself in his stage autobiography, "The Play" at Pittsburgh Public Theater, January 6th at 7 p.m., followed by a private cocktail reception with Rocky after the show. "The Play" - which also utilizes video sequences to take audiences back to the historic landscapes of Rocky's life - is written by Gene Collier, who also co-wrote the runaway Pittsburgh Public Theater hit show "The Chief" based on the life of legendary Steelers owner Art Rooney.
Says Collier: “Rocky’s is a great American story that encompasses all these kinds of iconic touchstones - The Civil Rights movement, Notre Dame, Vietnam, the ’70s Steelers dynasty — he has been a part of some really big things.” To purchase tickets online, go to eventbrite.com and search on "Rock Tales and Cocktails."
