featuring SiriusXM Radio star and Broadway savant Seth Rudetsky 

Seth Rudetsky is back at City Theatre by popular demand with a hilarious, new show! October 25-28, 2012 

PITTSBURGH, PA (October 1, 2012)—After a popular appearance last fall, City Theatre welcomes back Seth Rudetsky with his brand new show, Seth’s Big Fat ’70s Show, a City Events special presentation featuring Rudetsky’s celebrated, comic “deconstructions,” now applied to 1970s variety and awards shows. Seth’s Big Fat ’70s Show runs in City Theatre’s Hamburg Studio Theatre October 25-28, 2012. 

Wildly entertaining SiriusXM Radio star Seth Rudetsky shifts his focus toward the over-the-top variety and awards shows of the 1970s. Ranging from the short-lived Brady Bunch Variety Hour to Liza Minelli and Donny and Marie, Seth revisits cringe-tastic moments from the grooviest decade to date. Seth Rudetsky is the afternoon host on SiriusXM Radio’s On Broadway as well as the host of Seth Speaks on SiriusXM Stars. As a pianist, Seth has played for more than a dozen Broadway shows including Ragtime, Les Miserables, and Phantom of the Opera. He was the Artistic Producer/Music Director for the first five annual Actors Fund Fall Concerts including Dreamgirls with Audra MacDonald and Grammy nominated Hair with Jennifer Hudson. In 2007, he made his Broadway acting debut playing Sheldon in The Ritz for The Roundabout Theater. Off-Broadway, Rudetsky wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed Rhapsody in Seth at the Actors Playhouse. Television appearances include Law & Order: Criminal Intent and All My Children. Rudetsky is the author of three books: Q Guide to Broadway, Broadway Nights, and My Awesome/Awful Popularity Plan. He played himself on Kathy Griffin; My Life on the D-List, was the vocal coach on MTV’s Legally Blonde reality show, and starred opposite Sutton Foster in They’re Playing Our Song for the Actors Fund. Recently, he co-wrote and starred in Disaster! Rudetsky currently writes a weekly column on and tours the country doing master classes and performing his one-man shows.
