While it won’t be self evident when you first view the blue and floral living room set, “Nana’s Naughty Knickers” comes alive only when we see what’s really going on behind cleverly concealed trap doors. This splashy, flashy juxtaposition is the make or break element of the show, and Shelley Barish’s set designs are bright, glittery, and just adult bookstore enough to make them titillating.
