It is certainly a new kind of theater. I haven't been to Sleep No More but I heard it is compared to that show. Actors have good bodies that they would gladly demonstrate and it is certainly amusing to interact with them one-on-one and wander...More

Expecting a theatre experience with interaction we were totally underwhelmed with the performances given - more dance (if it could be called dance) than anything else - it was a complete let down and an embarrassment, although the performers were loving it and themselves.

You need to be ope-minded to have a good time here. I got a little claustrophobic in the small spaces, and wish I had more freedom to walk around and explore other plotlines. Incredible choreography, interesting philosophical concepts, and great sets. Loved the conga line!...More

We were blown away by this more unusual and quite abstract experience. The theatre itself is in a dark, backstreet Brooklyn superb but is only a 3-minute walk from Jefferson on the L line. The graffiti walls and trendy little bars all set the scene!...More

Entrance to The Grand Paradise is by boarding pass and indeed you are transported to another world where everyone has their own unique experience. Don't be surprised if you find yourself alone in a tiny bedroom with a seductive host or hostess that wants to...More

Immersive theatre, set in a holiday resort of the 1970s. A dreamlike world of tarot reading and candles, holiday romances, dance and death. This is a larger show than the same company's Then She Fell, and is both better and worse for it. Structurally it...More

This was my second time experiencing a Third Rail production and Grand Paradise was a 1970s dream sequence I didn’t want to wake up from! Without giving too much away, this immersive theater experience was less plot oriented than Then She Fell, but this lent...More

A great two hours! It was interesting to do a piece like this that felt more dance focused than theatre, and it was also one of the more structured immersive pieces I've been to: cast members guided much of the experience throughout the evening. Really...More

This was a very unique and at times bizarre immersive theatre experience. It was like a Fantasy Island episode from the 1970s with the themes of escape, losing one's inhibitions and the passage of time. If you go in a group you will likely be...More

You don't need one! The metro underground is a 3-minute walk, operates 24-hours a day and will whisk you anywhere on the network (Manhatten, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, JFK, La Gardia, Newark, etc in minutes!
