About the show

Linked Dance Theatre's new dance theater piece immerses audiences in the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, as they attend their wedding and see this fabled story come to life before their eyes. More…

As the night unfolds, Orpheus and Eurydice's love will be tested, and ultimately they and the audience will face the question: is love enough to hold us together?

Note: You must be able to stand and walk for the duration of the performance, including up and down stairs. Dressing for the occasion is highly encouraged - think, semi-formal relaxed spring wedding but comfortable footwear is advised.

Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if MAN! We need more risks like this in theatre. Loved how they utilized their set. May be your poor man's Sleep No More, but it's got merit.

Don't see it if Hades is horrendously miscast. Acting is dodgy sometimes. Dancing could be tightened up.

Also Speaking of tightening up, let me say this: An immersive experience li... Read more Read less

See it if I love immersive. Was rooting for it. Some good things, but generally on the weaker side. Hadestown meets Then She Fell but lower quality.

Don't see it if You can’t climb stairs or stand a long time. Don’t like immersive shows.

Ambitious, Promising, Entertaining, Fatiguing, Clever

See it if you want to attend the wedding of Orpheus & Eurydice and follow the fateful lovers to hell & back in Hadestown meets Tony n' Tina's Wedding.

Don't see it if you're uneasy on your feet for 2hrs or unforgiving of a work-in-progress. There's a lot to admire here, but work is needed to tighten it up.

Also It is very helpful to brush up on your Greek mythology (especially the... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Confusing, Indulgent, Slow, Beautiful dancing

See it if imaginative non-linear work excites you. A poor-man's Sleep No More. Small groups are lead to rooms where some scenes are beautifully danced

Don't see it if you have knee or hip issues, STAIRS! Need knowledge of gods & their genealogy. Scenes repeat bad luck can stick you watching one twice,

See it if Well meaning immersive production. Work in progress with promise. Brush up on Greek mythology. A touch too long, nice dances and songs.

Don't see it if some places aren’t well lit for walkthrus. The smaller group moments need a little more purpose. Needs to be shortened. Worth seeing.

Don't see it if you don't like immersive shows that you will need to move around a space.

Also The show has potential, but I felt more story and acting, vs. all the ... Read more Read less

Slow, Quirky, Immersive, Nice dancing

See it if You like an immersive experience where you follow the actors all over the building in small groups. Some nice dance, some nice voices.

Don't see it if You don’t have patience for 2 hours of traipsing thru the church or figuring out who’s who among the gods represented. know the myth first

See it if you enjoy immersive theatre, wonderful narrative dance, greek mythology or weddings - a beautiful production that is so very intriguing

Don't see it if the above doesn't sound like something you'd be interested in, or if you have mobility issues (a lot of stairs, BIG church)

Also Be warned, you'll want to go again after seeing the show once - there'... Read more Read less

See it if you like immersive theatre, some beautiful male singers, and a "choose your own adventure".

Don't see it if you have mobility issues or low vision. This show takes place over 3 floors of an old church with narrow stairs and dark passageways.

Also It's unclear if the show is supposed to be scripted or improv. If it's... Read more Read less
