Boo York City has a pair of tickets to give away for the gripping Speakeasy Dollhouse immersive theatre show – based around the murder of speakeasy owner Frank Spano in 1935.
Artist and author, Cynthia von Buhler, created the much-lauded play where audience members are assigned a role and are an integral part of the action, which takes place in The Back Room; one of the few remaining original speakeasies in New York.
Cynthia – who is Frank’s grand-daughter – said: “As the audience enter, a fortune teller reads their palm and gives them a small piece of paper with their task or role. They make up their own lines based on the information they receive. There is no line between actors and audience in the show. They are encouraged to ‘ignore the advice their parents gave them as children – be nosy and talk to strangers’.”
To win the tickets – worth $110 – all you need to do is follow us on Twitter at @booyorkbooyork and retweet the competition post from April 7th, 2014. A name will be selected at random on April 14th to win the tickets to a performance of your choosing.
