The Pittsburgh Playhouse building in Oakland, which serves as the performing arts center of Point Park University and the Conservatory of Performing Arts, is nearing its end, as a new state-​of-​the-​art theatre complex is set to open on Forbes Avenue in downtown later this year. Photographer David Aschkenas documented the Playhouse in its final phase to show the behind-​the-​scenes areas that the public rarely gets the chance to see. View his gallery of haunting and detailed photographs below.
