Set in the late 1940s, this dilapidated detective precinct in NYC has seen its better days. With a plotline to rival a Greek Tragedy and a cast the size of a Shakespeare show (who frequently appear onstage in large numbers), the set was designed to both enable visibility for the low-set audience seating as well as to assist the other design elements in creating a film-noir mood in a live (and in color) production.
