What does the Waldorf have to do with Grandma’s House?

When you come to see New Year’s Eve at Grandma’s House Nov. 3-18, you’re going to be hearing about the Waldorf. Specifically, you’ll hear about dancing in a Waldorf ballroom. What’s that all about?

The Waldorf Astoria Hotel is a well-established New York City landmark which now has locations in other cities as well, including Chicago.

For members of the Greatest Generation growing up in the Great Depression in New York, the Waldorf was another world, one they could only dream being a part of.

So it’s no wonder that one of our characters, Faye, relishes her memories of the Waldorf. What memories? Let’s just say a ballroom is definitely involved, as is the lobby. To find out more, order your tickets here now.
