WHAT IS HOT METAL?

Hot Metal Arts Collective is a production company founded in 2015 by Jesse Cramer, Matt Davidson, Sam Horvath, and Johnna Scrabis. Named for the bridge in Pittsburgh, PA, which transported crucibles of glowing, molten steel from blast furnaces across the Monongahela River to the rolling mills on the opposite side, Hot Metal is dedicated carrying raw, new work through to complete, permanent, and lasting art.

Cross, a play by Jesse Cramer, premiered on March 11th,  2016, and marked Hot Metal's New York debut and featured the company's first original production.
