Immersive Event THEN SHE FELL Offers New Block of Tickets Through Winter 2017
Tickets for Third Rail Projects' critically acclaimed hit THEN SHE FELL, an immersive theater event inspired by the life and writings of Lewis Carroll (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland), have been more difficult to score than Hamilton. Approaching four years and 2,250 performances, every performance has quickly sold out since it's opening in October of 2012. But there is good news: a new block of tickets is now on sale for performances through January 15, 2017. THEN SHE FELL takes place at The Kingsland Ward at St. Johns, a century-old institutional building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where the action plays out on 3 floors.THEN SHE FELL is a fully immersive, multi-sensory experience in which only 15 Audience members at a time explore a dreamlike world where every alcove, corner, and corridor has been transformed into lushly designed performance space. Inspired by the life and writings of Lewis Carroll, it offers an 'Alice-like' experience for Audience members as they explore the rooms, often by themselves, in order to discover hidden scenes; encounter performers one-on-one; unearth clues that illuminate a shrouded history; use skeleton keys to gain access to guarded secrets; and imbibe custom-designed elixirs. Written, directed, designed and choreographed by Zach Morris, Tom Pearson and Jennine Willett in collaboration with The Company, THEN SHE FELL evokes the inner, psychological landscapes of Lewis Carroll, Alice Liddell, and iconic characters from Carroll's texts. Every aspect of each audience member's experience has been meticulously designed, from lush environments to the smells, tastes, and objects, that they discover as they explore and unravel a narrative that balances dream, reality, fact, and fiction. THEN SHE FELL is directed, designed, written and choreographed by Zach Morris, Tom Pearson, and Jennine Willett in collaboration with original cast members: Elizabeth Carena, Alberto Denis, Stacie C.
