'The Chief' to return to Pittsburgh Public Theater

Tickets go on sale Monday for a return visit of "The Chief" at Pittsburgh Public Theater.

Tom Atkins returns Sept. 18 for seven performances only in this one-man play about Steelers owner Art Rooney Sr. at the O'Reilly Theater, Downtown.

"The Chief" is set in 1976 in Rooney's office at Three Rivers Stadium, as he prepares for yet another event honoring him. While getting ready, he reminisces about growing up on Pittsburgh's North Side, playing minor league baseball with his brother, Dan, and taking a fledgling semi-pro football team franchise from nothing to an NFL dynasty.

More than 45,000 theatergoers have seen "The Chief" since its debut in 2003 broke all previous Pittsburgh Public Theater records for single ticket sales.

Performances: 8 p.m. Sept. 18-22, 2 p.m. Sept. 22 and 7 p.m. Sept. 23 at the O'Reilly Theater, 621 Penn Ave. Admission: $45 and $60.
