Audience Annihilated Part Two: Gold Star Sticker
When: 10/31-11/3: Thu-Sat 7:30, 8, 8:30, and 9 PM, Sun 7:30, 8, 8:30, 9, and 9:30 PM
In his second 15-minute haunted house/horror show (the first staged in 2011), Jeremy Menekseoglu creates a thoroughly chilling nightmare in the time it takes most performances to open the curtain. Up to four audience members can play the starring role of six-year-old Princess, chained first to the TV (metaphorically), then the bed (actually), as she's subjected to the disturbing events unfolding around her. Other, more traditional seats are available, but I recommend this role, especially if you have a hand to hold. The thrillingly too-close-for-comfort characters, whose beer breath you can smell, are flawless: Nicole Roberts is heartless as Mother and Madelaine Schmitt worms into the pit of your stomach as Bear, a teddy-turned-tormentor. —Marissa Oberlander
