THE LOS ANGELES IMMERSIVE HIT
ENTER THE ASYLUM
In this first-of-its-kind hybrid immersive production of Dale Wasserman's classic play, we set a traditional theatrical show in an immersive, exploratory world. All audience members were checked into the “asylum,” either as acute or chronic patients, and encouraged to take part in our immersive pre-show where they could freely explore the asylum, interact with the characters, take “medication”, and discover the secrets of the ward and those who inhabit it.

It's an experience. It's not just another night in the theater. On the night I went the audience was a good twenty years younger than your typical LA theater audience. That's impressive.
Anthony Byrnes, KCRW 89.9 FM (NPR)
This is Los Angeles theater at its most innovative and exciting.
Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA
"Fans of theater, escape rooms, haunted houses, and immersive experiences such as Sleep No More and Delusion will find much to enjoy about this Cuckoo’s Nest, which makes a well-known story feel new again."
Erin Conly, On Stage and Screen
"Taken as a piece, the set and immersive design are bravura work. Indeed, all the design work on this production is incredible, easily the best I’ve seen in an age...it’s liable to be the best version of the play I’ll ever get to see."
Noah Nelson, No Proscenium
