See it if this is NOT theater. this is bad interactive performance art that is incoherent and annoying. a little poe didn't even go a long way

Don't see it if you don't want a normal theater experience that you can comprehend at the end!

"The first hour is a mixer for the audience to get to know the characters…But once the séance goes awry, the show does too.
