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.
