440 East 9th Street is home to an old hat shop that we are transforming into a bookstore for this production of ‘Nocturne’! We are so excited to share this immersive experience with you! We are truly getting site specific here! The play takes place in the LES - "Mrs. Levitsky, a Nabokov fanatic. She lives on Tenth Street between First Avenue and Avenue A, next to a Russian and Turkish bathhouse, where on a cool night the smell of eucalyptus drifts up from the courtyard and in through the window to his 9-by-9 room." ^^^THATS WHERE WE ARE!
