Creative, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you love poetry, dioramas, large installations, and "museum-like" pieces

Don't see it if you REALLY want to see theater. This immersive event is only theater in the loosest sense. Read more

Well-organized, designed and timed, Uneven, Resonant, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if You're up for a well-intentioned if uneven experience that's more art installation than theatre, but more than welcome after a barren year.

Don't see it if You’re germ-phobic and can’t deal with going room to room wearing the provided iPhone & earphones to experience each stage set and monologue Read more

Inventive, Intelligent, Immersive, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You like to explore a dozen different ideas and don't need a throughplot

Don't see it if You can't stand up for 80 minutes, you need a coherent plot, you're not okay with some episodes being very poetic/conceptual

The New York Times
May 20th, 2021

"Most of the installations hit a sweet spot in the middle, with the audio performances mellowing the tone, as though each playwright were speaking to a friend...Throughout the production, it’s the details that delight...In fact, there’s so much to see that 'A Dozen Dreams' can overload the senses, making it likely you’ll miss something — an excuse to revisit it."

"Guided by the writers’ own voices via sanitized headphones and impeccable sound design by Rena Anakwe, the pairing of these whispered fantasies with the detailed environments provides an intimate experience welcome after the past fourteen months...Each segment is less than five minutes long and there is so much to take in that it feels like you could spend twice as long in some of the spaces. If the scope occasionally feels out of balance in other rooms, it’s easily forgivable."
