New Immersive 1930s Sideshow CURIOSITIES Coming to NYC This October

New Immersive 1930s Sideshow CURIOSITIES Coming to NYC This October

Joining the explosion of fully immersive theater, Green Lite Productions presents CURIOSITIES, an intimate multi-sensory theatrical experience in which visitors traverse the tunnels of an illegal 1930s sideshow world full of bootleggers, deviants, performers, and misfits.

In this meticulously designed evening of seduction and danger, only 50 patrons per performance will have the opportunity to curate their own experiences, culminating in a finale that will never be forgotten.

Described by Huffington Post as an "always surreal theatrical experience", CURIOSITIES indulges visitors in "the forbidden allure of sideshows," where there are secrets to be discovered, and no two experiences are the same. Guests are invited to explore this subterranean world of movement, touch, and whispered parables, all taking place at a secret performance of Professor Mysterium's Menagerie of Wonder. Care for some Professor's Punch?

The shadowy great depression era jazz club of CURIOSITIES is the brainchild of Anthony Logan Cole (Les Miserables), who shares the helm with co-director and choreographer Bryan Knowlton (A Chorus Line). CURIOSITIES' creative team boasts a star-studded lineup of veterans from other immersive productions such as Sleep No More, The Grand Paradise, Then She Fell, Seeing You, and Queen Of The Night. The creative team features Christina Verde (Lighting/Sound Design), Natalie Chernicoff (Production Manager), TJ Burleson (Costume Design), Roberto Garcia (Scenic Installation Artist), Steven Harkins (Carpenter) and Laura Hamel (Music Direction).

CURIOSITIES plays a strictly limited run at their home, The Menagerie, located at 627 5th Avenue Between 17th and 18th Streets in Park Slope, Brooklyn - just off the D, N, R and W trains at 4th Ave/9th St. Previews begin Wednesday, October 4th with an official Opening Night set for Friday, October 13th. Shows are scheduled Wednesday through Sunday, with two shows on Fridays and Saturdays. Patrons are encouraged to come in 1930s attire. The Menagerie will host bands, cabaret artists, and guest performers on Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the run.

Entrance to The Professor's Menagerie is $100 and extremely limited. To purchase tickets, visit tiny.cc/curiosities**. For more information, go to www.curiositiesnyc.com.
