See it if You enjoy immersive/interactive theater. Good concept and there are some fun parts like the seance scene.
Don't see it if The execution was not always the best. Uneven performances and some scenes were not as interesting as others.
See it if A great concept but a flawed execution of an immersive show (and I LOVE immersive). Odd group movement and choppy story cause a miss.
Don't see it if You don’t like to walk around a building to see a show. You don’t like interacting with cast members. Or are uncomfortable with nudity.
See it if You enjoy "immersive" theatre, although this wasn't super immersive. You have an interest in Houdini and the drama surrounding his death.
Don't see it if You want to know what is happening all the time.
See it if You are interested in Houdini, You are looking for a beginner immersive experience - this show is immersive but not really too immersive.
Don't see it if You want a true immersive, you are looking for good acting or a good story with a point - this show was lacking and disappointing.
