Immersive Hit THE HIDDEN ONES Begins Extended Run In Manhattan
After scoring critical acclaim and sold out performances earlier this fall in Brooklyn, immersive hit THE HIDDEN ONES returns for and extended run beginning November 1 at an undisclosed venue in Midtown Manhattan near the 50th Street stop on the A/C subway line. Presented by Miller-Coffman Productions, THE HIDDEN ONES was conceived and directed by Anthony Logan Cole (Les Miserables, Curiosities) and choreographed by Whitney Sprayberry (Seeing You, Jagged Little Pill).
THE HIDDEN ONES is set near the end of World War II. An audience of 6 members per performance begins their journey in a secret location, where they are smuggled into a world of true stories of those forced into hiding. THE HIDDEN ONES brings the audience face to face not only with history, but with stories of raw love and humanity as they observe two families working to overcome extraordinary circumstances in the darkest of times. It is about how hope can survive turmoil, how passion can thrive in the bleakest of times, and how silence can speak deafening volumes.
The cast for THE HIDDEN ONES includes Jay Stuart, Chris Jumper, Marley Madding, Rakel Aroyo, Amar Biamonte, Monica Blaze Leavitt, Sophia Andreyev, Anthony Logan Cole, and Bryan S. Walton. The production team includes immersive, Broadway, and film veterans who have crafted unique experiences for each of the show's audience members. The team includes: Scenic Design and Art by Braden Hooter, Technical Supervision by Christina Verde, Production Management by Tyler Oberle, and General Management by Green Lite Productions. It is produced by Stephen Miller, Jess Weiss, John Lant, Tyler Oberle, Lyle Sterne, and Dave Morrissey Jr.
