Teller and Todd Robbins invite Death out to play in a new spirit-shaking show inspired by "Midnight Spook Shows," an American institution from the 1930s to the 1970s.

Closed 1 Jan 2012

Set in the here and now in an "abandoned" theater illuminated by a single ghostlight, audiences test their nerves and face their fears as they are surrounded by ethereal sights, sounds and even touches of the returning dead.

Teller and Todd Robbins invite Death out to play in PLAY DEAD, a new spirit-shaking Off-Broadway show inspired by “Midnight Spook Shows,” an American institution from the 1930s to the 1970s.

As the guide for the evening, Robbins draws audiences into an unknown haunted world full of frightful surprises and diabolical laughter.

Although very much a theatrical work, it is hardly a typical “play,” but rather a dramatic, unnerving thriller – here and now in an “abandoned” theater, illuminated by a single ghostlight – in which audiences test their nerves and face their fears as they are surrounded by ethereal sights, sounds and even touches of the returning dead – all achieved by wry, suspenseful storytelling and uncanny stage illusions.
