"A Modern Day Edgar Allan Poe Story meets a 1960's Horror Movie"
See it if you are open to a work that needs refinement - there are some good moments of interaction with actors and the space is interesting.
Don't see it if you expect a rewarding immersion experience - it's a lot of moving around when it gets going and the sounds drown out the actors quite often
See it if you enjoy interactive performances. The actors work hard to engage the audience. The space is interesting. The chicken wings are delicious.
Don't see it if you expect a complex theatrical experience. The first hour was mostly drinks and food. The remaining time was mostly dramatic poetryreadings
See it if you want something different. The space they used is amazing, but the show was disappointing. Acting was great, but repetitive. See if Fan.
Don't see it if have no interest in seeing people get possessed over and over again and tell stories that you have no interest in. Read more below..
See it if you like to be able to explore a play, like strong imagery and don't a mind some confusion and an unclear narrative or finale.
Don't see it if you just want to sit and watch, don't enjoy interacting with actors and role playing slightly. Are not interested in Poe.
See it if Monologue driven theatrical experience on your feet, following actors from space to space in search of the play.
Don't see it if You are a theatre traditionalist who wants to sit and be entertained. You are looking for a plot driven story that has a decisive ending.
See it if you think the future is in the interactive theater. If you like being close and personal to feel your vis-à-vis joy and angst.
Don't see it if You'd rather have a 4th wall in the theater. If you expect Poe's theme - he's just used as pretext.
See it if You don't mind not understand what's happening around you, or if you want to get drunk and have a great time.
Don't see it if You're looking for a linear story. The space doesn't work well (can hear karaoke from the next room).
See it if If you must see all immersive theater. You want to see an excellent cast give their all to a terrible script.
Don't see it if you want traditional theater. You want good Immersive theater.
See it if Perhaps, if you are in the younger generation, you may enjoy it. Thought we should learn more about Poe, but it was not a part of this play
Don't see it if If you want to sit in a seat and watch a play, do not bother. Being inter-active did not elevate the performance. it was not believable.
See it if you enjoy interesting, themed spaces; If you love Poe and anything to do with him; If you are entertained by seances and their consequences
Don't see it if you prefer a well-structured plot line where things make sense; you hate immersive theater or interacting with actors; don't want to move
See it if you love Poe, but have only read two or three of his poems. You NEED to see every immersive event in NYC.
Don't see it if You want a story, not just a series of ghostly possessions. You want an immersive experience where the audience is more than a bystander.
