Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, also known as the 'Steel City' is the second largest city in the state, but is also one of the country's leaders in economic influence and employment density.

Some of the city's best venues for productions are the Benedum Center, Byham Theater, and Rex Theatre. But in reality, sports are what this town lives for. The Pittsburgh Steelers of the NFL are one of the most historic franchises in all of sports, let alone football.
