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."

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!

Ambitious, Fluffy, Quirky, Disappointing, Great acting

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.

Also Well worth the time. Interesting and innovative and happy to support t... Read more Read less

Don't see it if If you want a coherent script that makes sense. I was confused.

Banal, Slow, Quirky, Excruciating

Don't see it if you expect participation; don't want to sit through a lackluster performance in a stuffy room

Disappointing, Quirky, Confusing

Slow, Interesting, Intense, Disappointing, Ambitious

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

Fun, Entertaining, Great sound design, Intense, Riveting

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.

Dizzying, Great acting, Funny, Ambitious, Clever

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.
