From the show:
Smell, taste, and touch your way through this nourishing ode to joy, and let it awaken your autonomous sensory meridian responses. Choreograph the Dance of Chocolate. Savor life. Carpe diem.
See it if You want to experience something totally different and outside box. This is a lovely experience more than a show, refreshing, fun & clever.
Don't see it if You’re not willing to play along. Trust is a big part of this. If you can’t sit in the dark for an hour and touch/taste/listen pass on this.
See it if You like being given different items to eat/drink wile you're blindfolded. Hear words in your ear, be touched by a feather, hear poems.
Don't see it if You don't like 45 minute experiences in the dark where you have to touch, taste, smell and hear. Everything but sight.

Don't see it if I felt it was a missed opportunity. It was entertaining but bland No depth of content or context
See it if You want something “outside the box”. You want to participate in the production.

See it if you want taste-test theater, you are given small amounts of delicious food to taste, whilst blindfolded, and poetry is read around you
Don't see it if you want a narrative or to see a traditional performance - this is you, sat in a chair, listening to quiet sounds, and sampling food
See it if you enjoy out-of-the-box approach to theatre and are open to having all your senses (save the sight) stimulated
Don't see it if you like your theater conventional, by-the-book, linear, and visible
See it if you are looking for an immersive and original theater experience. The entire show is in the dark, so you can't see anything.
