IMMERSIVE – Alt Delete – CA

ALT DELETE

Delusion: The Blue BladeAlt Delete is an amazing interactive play with some incredible moments that will stick with me.

I’ve always been a fan of Delusion, but honestly I was a bit apprehensive about attending a show that was so short. I wasn’t sure if it was really worth the journey and the cost.

It is.

It’s an incredible performance with a small cast in a unique location, The Dragon & Meeple pub. It continues the same story so if you attended Blue Blade you will be familiar with the story and Evelyn Lowell, however if you didn’t you will still enjoy it. They are only open for a few more weekends, so I highly recommend getting your tickets soon so you don’t miss this unique experience. You can also hang out after and enjoy board games, dinner and drinks.

 

HAUNTS – The Shadow Space – CA

 

THE SHADOW SPACE

Screen Shot 2019-10-21 at 10.58.27 AM.png

The Shadow Space is an incredible immersive theatre performance in Hollywood, California.
The storytelling and immersion began upon arrival with our guides greeting, “Welcome to being dead” and request for our names and cause of death. We were given instructions about the way our ghostly skills could be used to haunt the living and rules that were not to be broken such as not to allow the living to walk through us. We were led into the home to observe and haunt a pair of couples with a few important secrets we were about to discover.

I thought the storytelling, set, props, actors, immersion and overall event was magnificent. I found myself fully accepting my role as a ghost on the haunt. It was a lot of fun to play with the living by flicker lights and moving objects. Our guide and her trainee were charming and funny. I loved their relationship to each other and the audience. I was engaged watching the secrets unfold throughout the night. One of the standout moments for me was when I got separated from the rest of the ghosts and had a small private scene by one of the living. The puzzles and objects we were able to interact with were well designed and clever. I loved the twist at the end and found it all to be very entertaining and fun. I was a bit disappointed in scoring portion after the performance had ended. I would’ve much preferred to leave feeling the high of amazing performance than to discover we’d failed at a game I was unaware we were playing. Aside from that very small section after the show, I was completely impressed and blown away by this very professional immersive theatre experience and I highly recommend it.
Be sure to get your tickets and add yourself to their mailing list so you don’t miss out on any upcoming events by this creative company. Thank you to The Shadow Space for inviting us to be ghosts for an evening, it was an amazing time.

PLUG IN INITIATIVE: THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION
The Halogen Company will be donating part of its proceeds from our production of One
Exit to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. As this show deals with traumatic and sudden deaths, it is our duty as a company to reach out and raise awareness for this issue.
“Deaths of despair”, as they are being called, related to drugs, alcohol, or suicide — claimed the lives of 36,000 American millennials in 2017 alone. Drug overdoses are the most common cause of death. We’ve seen a 47% increase in major depression since 2013,
according to a Blue Cross Blue Shield report. However, one in five don’t seek treatment — likely because they can’t afford it. We at The Halogen Company hope you will join us for a night of immersive theatre, supporting an organization that impacts so many of those we love.

If you cannot join us for our limited engagement of One Exit, we urge to to make a donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. And as always we just want to say that you are not alone. Confidential help is available for free. If you do have thoughts of suicide please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. We can only make the mundane strange again, if you are here to enjoy it with us.
