About the Show

Set in a secret bunker far in the fascist future, this new, immersive, queer nightclub musical explores a world where little more than sequins, reality television, and the complete works of Oscar Wilde have survived.

Quirky, Indulgent, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You saw "Here Lies Love" and enjoyed the "movable" stage aspect. Plot and connection to Oscar Wilde was murky at best. Too much going once.

Don't see it if You don't like to stand during the entire performance and are not used to a chaotic scene on & off stage.

Edgy, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You want to dance & sway to incredible music with energetic dancing. Talented cast. Audience moves with the cast & staging. Friendly group

Don't see it if You do not want to stand for 90 minutes. Reminiscing of a rave. Don't like loud music & strobes Read more

"The idea of Oscar Wilde and Julie Cooper somehow being linked in an infernal loop of reality, fiction, and fetish gear certainly is intriguing, but 'Oscar at the Crown' is brought down by interchangeable numbers and a staging, by Shira Milikowsky, that too often mistakes agitation for energy or purpose...It can be very entertaining in a goofy, mindless manner, and just as often very confusing."

"The worst thing you can say about 'OSCAR at The Crown' is that it is harmless; that's also the best thing you can say about it. Perhaps Wilde -- who, after all, said, 'The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about" -- wouldn't mind too much.'"

"If you're looking for a dance party or an excuse to dress up and wear glitter, this is the show for you. It's best experienced with a large group of friends, after you've all had a drink or three...It's fun at first, but becomes repetitive in the short 90-minute run time...In the end, you don't walk away with too many insights."
