See it if you want to see a case of missed advertising. This is not immersive theater (a la Sleep No More), but a cabaret act with immersive elements.
Don't see it if you feel it's not worth seeing. I probably would've enjoyed this show better if I've known it's just a cabaret act, with little to no plot.
See it if you have an open mind and some time to kill. Also if you like burlesque style acts with a hint of sideshow.
Don't see it if you expect perfection, a clear storyline, and a conclusion that makes sense.
See it if You've had at least one drink beforehand & aren't expecting Sleep No More. It's fine but not worth the money without at least 2 free drinks
Don't see it if You're not willing to interact with the performers; we needed two of us to figure out what happened. Or if you need high quality theater
See it if you want to see a charming emcee introduce mediocre (at best) burlesque acts; you're prepared for a low-rent, barely-immersive experience.
Don't see it if you expect an imaginative interactive event a la Sleep No More or Then She Fell. [This lacks originality, cohesion, intelligence & talent.]
See it if You know someone in the cast. Several are actually talented and the emcee is delightful, but the whole is significantly less than its parts
Don't see it if You know someone in the cast and would be honest with them. Heavy haze effects used. Terrible overpriced punch. Location is not accessible
See it if you enjoy burlesque, but know the real show is not on stage. Its the characters coming to you to gossip & whisper sad stories in your ear.
Don't see it if you find interactive theater intrusive. The building where it is staged is being renovated which works as a setting but is disconcerting.
See it if You are OK with not knowing what to expect and can go with the flow. You don't mind being approached/engaged by performers.
Don't see it if You are looking for a traditional or linear narrative with plot and character development.
See it if you enjoy immersive theater that is laid back and allows you ample time to enjoy the main acts and chat with your friends.
Don't see it if you need your immersive theater experience to be gripping and. engaging.
See it if you have very low expectations and might enjoy jazz and burlesque or want to go to support someone in the production
Don't see it if you love immersive shows like Sleep No More and expect this to be a low-budget version—it's nothing like that
See it if You are ok with a decent jazz band and some sad burlesque acts.
Don't see it if You expect immersive theatre. The staff often congregated in small groups and gossiped among themselves, rather than interacting w/ patrons.
See it if you enjoy variety shows and don't mind breaks between each short and not particularly memorable performance
Don't see it if you expect a plot or a true immersive experience (for that turn to Sleep No More, Then She Fell, etc.)
See it if ... I can't recommend this. It's not immersive, not interesting, not well-done, not entertaining. (Details below.)
Don't see it if ... We tried to stick it out, but after an hour my friend and I left early. We weren't the only ones.
See it if you like seeing a variety of short acts (singing, burlesque, boylesque) in a hipster bar setting with a lot of pauses between acts.
Don't see it if you don't like short (less than 5 min long each) acts, don't drink, want much of a story/plot, or want high quality immersive theater.
See it if you'd like to visit a 1930's underground speakeasy style bar with sideshow themed vignettes. Or if you love all forms of burlesque.
Don't see it if you're looking for an immersive theatrical experience with an engaging plot.
See it if Slumming in another era is your jam, enjoy tepid burlesque in a tatty atmosphere
Don't see it if dislike semi "immersive" theatre events, audience participation gives you the willies, you have standards for cabaret & burlesque
See it if you have or can keep an open mind and just go with the experience; it really will take you out of Manhattan for an amusing 2 hours.
Don't see it if you're looking for a traditional play, clear storyline, structure or anything linear; if you can't just be in the moment.
See it if you enjoy poorly performed cabaret style, freak/sideshow, burlesque acts. None of them done well or with any heart or anything interesting.
Don't see it if just don't see it! I always try to find SOMETHING positive to say but the best I can do with this show is that the band isn't awful.
See it if your friend is in the show and you have to go.
Don't see it if you want to see theatre. It's definitely not immersive. The material makes no efforts to explain story. It's not even burlesque.
See it if you're outgoing and enjoy experimental work. See this if you like choosing your own adventure.
Don't see it if you've been to Sleep No More or a similar immersive experience. Skip this if you hate forced interactions or overpriced drinks.
See it if You know someone in the cast or you have been well forewarned that you need to be willing to force interaction with the performers!
Don't see it if You aren't the type of person to take the initiative to talk to the performers. If you aren't you could be stuck sitting at your table.
See it if You want to listen to some jazz in an off- beat setting with mediocre burlesque act. Did not experience immersive theater.
Don't see it if You are expecting top notch entertainment. This was amateurish.
