Immersive theater is any kind of live entertainment that brings the audience inside the world of the performance. This can range from an artistic interpretation of a feeling, a real-world scavenger hunt with a curated soundtrack, or a personalized show with actors knowing intimate details of your life. However, Immersive Theater only works if the audience is comfortable and can participate, so understanding whether a show will be a good fit is paramount. This section will provide you with a general road-map: what’s out there, what to expect, and if it might be the kind of show you’re looking for.

Start with the Intensity Guide below, reading each description to determine what level feels most aligned with your desire for wonder or scares. Once you have found a comfortable level, then click on a few of the companies within the intensity to read more about each. This will help set the right expectations for you. If you already know a company you like, then find that company and try others at a similar level. Use this as a tool to build your immersive knowledge and explore this new artform.
