From the show:
"Do you believe in time travel? Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe in... science? What if you could listen to the voices of the past as easily as you listen to your favorite podcast? Join us for this unique theatrical demonstration - the unveiling of visionary scientist Dr. Carolyn Blau's Mechanical Wave Reassembly Hypercardioid Sequencing Module.
The Tank's World Premiere production of The Seance Machine is the brainchild of collaborators EllaRose Chary and Brandon James Gwinn, an award-winning musical theatre writing team specializing in stories that take a fresh look at the queer community with cutting-edge music. Together they also curate Tank-aret, a monthly cabaret series at The Tank featuring underrepresented artists. www.theseancemachine.com"
See it if you are interested in new work - here some good elements at the beginning about the history of the area and the site set a good tone.
Don't see it if you would not enjoy the play dissolving into a horror-mess, protracted with really nothing to offer as it was not frightening. Loud sounds!
See it if You like a simple plot with no character or plot development. Good actors working with a non-interesting script!
Don't see it if Theatre was very hot and uncomfortable. Nothing really worth seeing. I say “Run Forrest Run” & skip it.
See it if You are interested in non-traditional story telling, and ghost stories.
Don't see it if You are easily scared, or aren’t open to an unusual concept. You have to put on a lab coat for example.
See it if Do you want to see a scary Halloween production with humor.
Don't see it if You can’t take a little high school like production done with humor and a few zombie apocalypse moments
See it if You want to see something different. The horror elements are interesting
Don't see it if It starts slow and has a flimsy story. It's hard to get into
See it if You like immersive work, sci-fi/horror, emerging work in NYC theater. Also if you wanna experience some truly remarkable sound design.
Don't see it if You aren't forgiving of some unevenness to get at some really cool moments.
See it if You want to see something off beat in a small space. The actors are young, fresh, & really, really, really good.
Don't see it if You have no sense of wonderment or don’t like small spaces.
