Pittsburgh Musical Theater newcomer Justin Lonesome grew up listening to music by Kool & the Gang, the Bee Gees and Motown.
“My mom introduced me to a lot of different kinds of music,” said Lonesome who hails from Baltimore, but moved to Pittsburgh to attend Point Park University’s theater program in 2007. “She was a part of the tail-end of the disco scene she was in there getting down with everybody. We used to get down at Christmas time and any time.”
When Lonesome learned that Pittsburgh Musical Theater was putting on its own rendition of “Saturday Night Fever,” he knew he had to be a part of the cast.
