We are proud of these talented technical and craft employees that work lighting, sound, audio-visual, special effects, and props for theatrical productions at the August Wilson Center, 980 Liberty Avenue downtown Pittsburgh. The August Wilson Center is one of only two major arts institutions in the world named for Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright and Pittsburgh native August Wilson.
