Odd Man Out officially opened off-Broadway on Tuesday, July 2, and has now announced an extension to its limited engagement. Originally scheduled to run through Sunday, July 21, the production – which takes place in total pitch-black darkness – has added three weeks and is now set to run until Sunday, August 11 at the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture’s Shiner Theatre. Tickets start at $10, with First Class tickets also available to include a drink in the lounge, priority boarding, a drink and food item when you arrive in Buenos Aires, and other special treats. Spanish-language performances are also available.

“Odd Man Out” is the exciting, unique, and special event of the summer – a full-scale, one-of-a-kind LIVE 360-degree fully immersive sensory experience that takes place in total darkness. “Passengers” arrive at the “airport,” visit a lounge, access a boarding gate, and are escorted to their seats on the “airplane” in pitch black. There are no blindfolds or headphones… The story unfolds all around you as a passenger on a flight with Alberto, a blind musician flying home from New York to Buenos Aires, Argentina. As the flight progresses, Alberto tells his life stories to his seatmates, while they experience his journey as he perceives it: in complete darkness.

“Odd Man Out” began at Teatro Ciego in Argentina in October 2019 as a fully live, immersive theatrical production. Teatro Ciego has a 15-year history of creating live experiences in complete darkness. In the U.S., Odd Man Out was presented in a semi-live format at The Flea during Winter 2021/2022; before returning to a fully staged live production at the Bristol Riverside Theatre in December 2022.
