If you live in or will be visiting the New York area during the holidays and are looking for some off-the-beaten path type entertainment, you might want to check out Play Dead, a new Off-Broadway production co-written by Teller (of Penn and Teller) and featuring Todd Robbins, a preeminent sideshow performer.
You’re probably well past getting scared by haunted houses, but you haven’t been entertained in an abandoned-looking theater, lit by a single ghost light leading you on a darkly comedic journey, encouraging the dead to speak to you.
PLAY DEAD takes a more supernatural road than what’s generally seen on, off or anywhere near the Great White Way. Co-writer Todd Robbins (“Dark Deceptions”) stars as the audience’s storytelling guide on an evening exploring death, darkness and deception. Magician, comedian and dark arts expert Teller is the director and other co-writer. Their collaboration and combined knowledge and expertise in the underworld promise to take the audience into uncharted supernatural waters, loaded with haunting surprises and plenty of shrieking nervous laughter.
