Flyspace Productions was founded in 2006. With more than 2 decades of experience, Jennifer Owen and Cory Cope decided to start the company after working independently for a number of years. Since then, Flyspace Productions has grown to be one of Pittsburgh's leaders in event production. The flyspace in a theater is where the magic happens. It's where all of the unseen action, the movement, and the changeovers take place. When done right, the audience never realizes how much goes on behind the scenes of a major production.
