This almost 3 hour act can neither be described strictly as play or a dance. However for us this was one hell of a unique experience, something of a kind which we have not seen before. I am not a literally genius and won’t comment on the technical brilliance of the act, however this act does leave a lot for... More

Not for children. Performance art that is very engaging and strange. Get there early and stay late. Very dark.

I've gone through the show a few times (my brother works there) and loved it every time. I won't claim to understand the whole story or what is going on, but it is amazing to be in there. There is a reason that people can't explain well what is going on inside the hotel. You just have to experience it... More

Surreal, confusing, enlightening, tragic, spectacular, macabre, art-house. A totally different experience and well recommended as an alternative to Broadway.

We almost didn't do it during our recent NYC visit, but so happy we did. It was a highlight of our trip and unlike anything we have ever experienced in our life. No review will do it justice - just experience it yourself and break aways for those you came with.

I went with my husband but we followed the recommendation that you split up & explore alone & am very happy that we did so. I enjoyed feeling 'alone' in the silence (no talking allowed at all), the feeling of anonymity that wearing a mask provided, being able to go where I wanted, when I wanted......so be brave, loose contact...

Love the fact there's little advice about what to do or expect. It makes it all the more surreal when you;re wandering around, not quite knowing what to do or expect.Not for the faint hearted. Play by their rules and avoid hooking up with your friends/partner, best experienced wandering by yourself.

What an intimate, developed production. There is one scene that simply blew my mind! Brilliant contemporary dance choreography and such a mindbender. As this has been around for a while now is the time to do it as you will likely have a very personal experience. Almost definitely the highlight of my month in NYC. People said it was not... More

Anything where you have to walk around wearing a super scary white plastic scream mask for 3 hours may not seem up your alley - it didn't really seem up my alley - but recently my friends who were in from Chicago made a plan for us to go to this show. I had no idea what to expect. They... More

Interesting concept, to allow the audience to wander around the theater, and fabulous business model to sell a book for $60 to tell what was going on. I'll not reveal spoilers. I thought the most interesting thing was how the audience behaved behind the masks that created a sense of anonymity. Much easier to invade personal space/personal events behind a... More
