Piven Theatre Workshop celebrates 40 years

The Piven Theatre Workshop has taught thousands of students the art of acting, including artists like John Cusack and others who've had success in the entertainment industry.

Byrne and Joyce Piven founded the theatre 40 years ago. Piven is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a big gala on June 25, to honor actors, teachers, mentors, directors, administrators, donors and Board members. Artistic director Jennifer Green joined us in our ABC7 studio to talk about that.
