PITTSBURGH — In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera (CLO), the Pittsburgh City Council voted to declare Tue., Feb. 21, CLO Day at its regular morning meeting. The official anniversary was actually Mon., Feb. 20, but that was a federal holiday.
Founded in 1946 by Abe Wolk, then a city councilman, the CLO is a nationally respected company that performs Broadway musicals new and old in two of the city's most venerable venues, the Byham Theater and the Benedum Center, both in downtown Pittsburgh. Its current season includes the shows Spamalot, Beauty and the Beast, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Recently the CLO opened its new Cabaret at Theater Square.
