Ambitious, Quirky, Confusing, Multi-sensory

See it if You are curious about alternative experiences. Wearing mask, blindfold & earphones focuses attention inward onto the audio descriptions

Don't see it if The script jumps from present to past without making clear transitions which is confusing without visual input.

"Without the benefit of sight, one must strain to listen more closely in order to understand the events of the play; footsteps, cane taps, ball bounces, far off music, distant voices and other incidental sounds make much more of an impact in the story, sounds that would have held less significance when simply watching a play. The original music by Mirko Mescia sounds even more beautiful when listened to without visual distraction, including a notably gorgeous guitar piece played by Roberto Ariel Cáceres during an especially transporting interlude. All told, the binaural sound design by Nicolas Álvarez was robust and inventive, providing an amazing, three-dimensional sound experience of Alberto’s world."

Theatre is Easy

"That said, Odd Man Out offers a compelling new take on “immersive theatre,” and an important reminder that by subtracting one sense, you can often experience “more” with the others. And Teatro Ciego, theatreC, and PITCHBLACK are definitely companies to watch. While the reliance here on audio recording is understandable given the pandemic, I eagerly await their future endeavors, especially if they are able to shift more fully to live performance."
