WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

IMMERSIVE GUIDE


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.
