Lots of fun! We enjoyed this more than Broadway. We paid the few extra bucks and sat in the front row and got to participate a bit. We never laughed so hard. Close to subway and just a few blocks from Katz Deli.

"What a strange experience"

I bought tickets for my mother and I with absolutely no idea what to expect. The theater is very small and the show is interactive, I would recommend sitting in the lower level for a full experience. After being at the show, I can't really describe it. There were times that I was confused and times where I was laughing hysterically. If you're looking for something to do, and you're openminded, I recommend this show.

"You Have To Have VIP To Enjoy It"

Please don't go to this show. When we sat down in the balcony area they started of by doing a comedy act with some items only the VIP section could see. And half the show we had bright projector lights going into our eyes. The jokes that we heard or saw were just disappointing from them dabbing to them twerking my teen said that this was the biggest overpriced sh*t ever. PLEASE DON'T GO WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME!!!

Went there for the 2PM show today. Tix were only $75 including all fees. The show was 90 minutes and was the perfect amount of time. For a show with no speaking, it was great. Highly entertaining. Would definitely recommend.
