Here’s Where the Magic Will Happen

New Year’s Eve at Grandma’s House is a one-act play set in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1960. But to bring back that time and place, we’re renting the famed Piven Theater in Evanston for our April 13 performance.

Here’s what the empty stage looks like. As you can see, audience members will be on two sides as the performance takes place, helping them to feel that they are in grandma’s dining room along with the fabled Smaldone family.
