About:  I once stood in line for 12 hours just to get the on-stage seats for Spring Awakening. It had since became my all-time favorite.

Great staging, Masterful, Great singing, Must see, Exquisite

See it if you want to see a classic that's done in a new yet effective way. And if you are a fan of Sondheim and Sweeney you should not miss this!

Don't see it if you haven't seen this production yet and can't get a full-view seat. And if traditional musical theatre singing bores you.

The Lombardi Case 1975
Lower E Side
Funny, Dated, Cliched, Great acting, Confusing

See it if you want a fun group activity. You like anything thats related to solving a crime. And you are someone who enjoys socializing with strangers

Don't see it if I don't really recommend you to go to this show alone. This show involves a lot more "work" than any other immersive / interactive shows.

Also I must say the actors were the best part. I had some really good laugh... Read more Read less
