JULY 25 – ALEXANDRA BODNARCHUK. In anticipation of her upcoming performance, Something Pretty, Alexandra is having a fundraiser at Stack PGH, 5740 Baum Blvd in Friendship from 7 – 9. (It’s a third floor shared working space with a considerable cool factor.) With eats from Bar Marco and Poros, two performances and conversation with the cast and other attendees, it sounds like a good deal, even more so when you get a free ticket to one of  her premiere performances at the Kelly-Strayhorn Aug. 18-19. Click on Alexandra.
