About the show

Live In Theater presents an interactive murder mystery experience set in the underworld of 1970s New York City. More…

A politico’s daughter is murdered in a drug-infested squat on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The newspapers go wild over the sensational crime. In this live murder mystery game, you become a rookie cop and canvas the neighborhood. Your task is to interrogate key players and gather clues to crack the case before the commissioner replaces the chief and shuts down the precinct. Watch each other’s backs as you encounter the neighborhood’s junkies, hookers, pimps, corrupt cops, and mobsters. 'The Lombardi Case 1975' is rated “R” for harsh language and racy content.

Entertaining, Dated, Great acting, Slow, Best for groups

See it if You want a show where you need to talk to the cast & solve a problem. You want siper-commited actors! You want an unique group activity.

Don't see it if You want a modern immersive show: this one's in Tony & Tina more. You want tight storytelling & pacing: story's slight & too long-2 1/2 hrs!

Also I had fun going solo, though I think it's a better experience as a gro... Read more Read less

Great acting, Raunchy, Clever, Entertaining, Edgy

See it if You want to solve a murder mystery! More escape the room type than theater but actors are really great and improvise well!

Don't see it if You don't like working with strangers as a team or would rather have the traditional theater experience.

Entertaining, Absorbing, Great acting, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy immersive pieces, or want an ambitious who-dunnit murder mystery centered around NYC

Don't see it if walking would be an issue for you, or working/socialising with a group of strangers wouldn't work for you - some adult content also

Also As with the other pieces by Lived In Theatre, this experience will be ... Read more Read less

Funny, Dated, Cliched, Great acting, Confusing

See it if you want a fun group activity. You like anything thats related to solving a crime. And you are someone who enjoys socializing with strangers

Don't see it if I don't really recommend you to go to this show alone. This show involves a lot more "work" than any other immersive / interactive shows.

Also I must say the actors were the best part. I had some really good laugh... Read more Read less

See it if You want to see and participate in something different. It's great for groups and a really fun day.

Delightful, Immersive, Funny, Entertaining, Self-driven

See it if Interactive shows delight you. This show, based on true events, allows the viewers to become participants. A jaunt in the streets included.

Don't see it if Viewer participation brings about your social anxiety issues. Group work is essential, so if you're not a team player, stay at the bar.

Edgy, Great acting, Quirky, Entertaining, Raunchy

See it if You enjoy escape-the-rooms and would like an even more interactive experience.

Don't see it if You want a traditional theater experience or don't feel like truly investing effort in the experience.

See it if You like murder mysteries, interactive shows, period pieces, improvisation, and a little bit of history.

Don't see it if You have mobility issues, don't like being forced to interact with strangers, or have low tolerance for poorly behaved audience members.

Also This is fun for groups!

for a previous production “The Lower East Side is seedy again in Live In Theater's unique, interactive crime show ‘The Lombardi Case 1975.’ If you don't remember this side of the neighborhood, you will have fun walking the streets collecting clues on a pleasant weekend afternoon…The dramatic ending caught me quite by surp...
