NEW  As part of our commitment to providing more shared experiences in comedy, Piccolo introduces its Reading Series, giving the company an opportunity to try out new, different, or in-progress works in a casual setting without production elements. Each performance is followed by a discussion between the audience, director, cast, and the playwright when possible.  The Reading Series will be held bi-monthly on one Friday and Saturday at 7:30 each night in the Parish House of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 939 Hinman Ave,  Floor 2, Evanston, IL 60202.  Tickets are only $10!  Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
