Excruciating

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.

Intense, Ambitious, Entertaining, Quirky, Clever

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.

Banal, Amateur, Disappointing, Insipid

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.] Read more

Cabaret burlesque not sideshow, Millenials trying on another era, Sense of menace/danger missing, Impending murdermystery format, Immersive = wrong word

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

Confusing, Disappointing, Indulgent, Raunchy, Slow

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. Read more

Confusing, Excruciating, Slow, Poorly executed

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

Raunchy, Slow, Bizarre, Disappointing, Ambitious

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. Read more

Entertaining, Fun, Clever, Quirky, Sexy

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. Read more
