Hazlett Jr. The Hazlett Theater served as the home to Pittsburgh Public Theater For 24 seasons from 1974 until 1999 when the PPT moved to the O'Reilly Theater.[5] Due to the decline of traffic, the local arts community supported the rebirth of the Hazlett Theater as the New Hazlett Theater in 2004, where it serves as a valued community resource for performing artists in the Pittsburgh area.
