In David Lindsay-Abaire's recent Broadway hit, Mike and Margaret both grew up in a poor neighborhood.

This vibrant one-woman show portrays the dynamism of a neighborhood. Embedded in the concrete of South Side's city steps are testimonials of teenage mischief, steel mill toil, and townie haunts.

Written and performed by Tami Dixon.
A winter wonderland of beautifully decorated Christmas trees and wreaths available for purchase.
