Front Porch Theatricals was formed by Bruce E.G. Smith, a local businessman, and Leon S. Zionts, an attorney and actor, for the purpose of mounting a professional production of the locally written and composed musical, Only Me, at East Liberty’s Kelly Strayhorn Theater in April 2009. That endeavor achieved both artistic and financial success. A key component of their success was the very gracious support of their friends, as well as Pittsburgh’s arts foundation community (The Heinz Endowments, The Pittsburgh Foundation and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, among others). Leon then performed in two of Carrnivale Theatrics’ productions in 2010 and 2011 and the opportunity arose to assist the two young producers/directors at Carrnivale Theatrics. Bruce and Leon became co-producers once again in helping to support and mentor Justin Fortunato and Bob Neumeyer in creating something special with Next to Normal in 2012 and In The Heights in 2013.
