LiveINTheater specializes in creating interactive, immersive theatrical experiences that give the audience as much a chance to participate as the performers. The Ryan Case travels back in time to New York in the 1870s. Led by actors clad in age-evoking garb and bowler hats, you’ll go on a guided two-hour adventure through city neighborhoods while discovering clues. Similar in method and madness, 1975 encourages the mobile audience to solve a murder mystery, but one firmly planted in arguably the kitschiest decade of the 20th century. Gird your handlebar mustache and cop clichés for an investigation of bodies washing up on the banks of the East River, exploring the city for clues and live-action roleplaying as Bruce Springsteen’s spunky sidekick.
Performances of The Ryan Case are suitable for ages 13 and up and performances of 1975 are 21+ only.
Live In Theater Productions
Murder mysteries should be anything but silly. That’s the view espoused by Live In Theater Productions, the brainchild of prolific actor and playwright Carlo D'Amore. Eschewing the goofy tone of some other shows, Live In Theater plunges participants into cases that take their immersive details from unsolved, historical murders in New York. Showgoers make their way along the city streets where the real crimes once took place, interrogating actors playing roles ranging from 19th-century Irish slumlords to strung-out 1970s junkies. Each event plays out differently as the amateur sleuths weigh evidence, pursue leads, and finally find some use for their pocket-sized polygraphs, creating a one-of-a-kind adventure that earned a 2012 Drama Desk nomination for Unique Theatrical Experience.
