Surprising, Quirky, Absorbing, Refreshing, Great staging

See it if Each room of this large old house comes as a surprise, with elaborate scenic design and close-up acting in 3 time periods. Immersive fun.

Don't see it if The family drama with the two children and their troubled parents works well, but the dystopian future with no water makes no sense.

Ambitious, Great writing, Great staging, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you like immersive, site-specific theater where you get to wander around an abandoned house on Governor's Island.

Don't see it if you don't want to be on your feet and moving throughout an 80-minute show. You don't want to interact with actors.

The scenic design steals the show!

See it if You're into immersive, site-specific theater. You're into NYC history and theater that illuminates under-covered aspects of it.

Don't see it if You like to sit still to watch a play. You only enjoy linear narratives. Read more

Don't see it if A little spooky and confusing is a problem. Time is fluid and ghosts are common. Read more

Relevant, Great staging, Confusing, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You like immersive theatre with very little interaction and current dialogue about climate change and immigrants. Great sets considering.

Don't see it if You don’t like plays broken into tracks and have trouble keeping track of non-linear plots. I wanted a bit more from the characters. Read more

Resonant, Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Masterful

See it if U appreciate creativity, great staging, thought provoking immersion theater in a cool venue and enjoy getting out of your comfort zone.

Don't see it if U don’t like going to immersion theater, needing to stand most of the performance, or not knowing what the other audience members are seeing

Great staging, Masterful, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if you want your emotions provoked as well as your thoughts, you are willing to examine your use (or misuse) of water, you like history

Don't see it if You only like theater with a proscenium, you don't like immersive theater

Theatre is Easy
October 22nd, 2019

"Water and memories guide us through a house's history in this poignant immersive piece…the piece's aquatic motif highlights life's beauty and fragility, while re-affirming our interconnectedness and responsibility to preserve that which we value."
