Best Neighborhood Theatre

Hyde Park Theatre

Okay, Hyde Park is pretty much the only neighborhood theatre in town, but it fits so snugly into its residential community and adds so much to it, the theatre stands as a model for neighborhood theatres to come. Owner/manager Eva Paloheimo doesn't produce the work there, but she ensures that it engages audiences with a range of experiences, from the bold adult drama of Weldon Rising and Search and Destroy to the family fare of Children of Light Players. And she maintains the space with a neighborhood feel: cozy, welcoming. There's no homier place in town to see theatre. Cool new mural, too.
