Pittsburgh playwright August Wilson's "Fences" is currently in movie theaters across the country, while his "Jitney" is now on Broadway. To bring the Hill District to a New York City stage, set designer David Gallo sought inspiration from his conversations with Wilson, the New York Times reported. Here's a glimpse at Gallo's version of the Hill District: "If the gypsy-cab drivers who work out of the storefront office at 2046 Wylie Avenue are hungry, they can fill up on prime rib at the Red Bull Inn. The Super 71 drive-in is a hot spot for the latest disaster movie. For something more racy, there’s the L’amoure Theater ('It’s Better Than Burlesque'). And of course a Pirates game and an Iron City beer make for a perfectly Pittsburgh pairing."
