We’ve all had this conversation. You’re sitting around having drinks with friends and the question pops up: how would you handle being in a true apocalypse? Now, a new apocalyptic immersive theater event known as RED will open in New York City in May 2017, so you can find out just how well you’d do.
Pronounced “Ready,” this new show is being produced by US Army Veteran and Special Operations scenario designer Daniel Gomez and his wife, Dr. Johanna Gomez, a counselor specialized in resilience. Basically, we are talking about people who have not only had the conversation about what to do in an event of a “apocalyptic scenario,” but have the training on how to handle it accordingly.
RED will have an intimate 15-person show that will take place in a 4,000-square-foot building in Queens. Is it an escape room? No… though you will have to use analytical thinking and you do have to search your environment to best position yourself for whatever comes your way. Not to mention, the actors that you encounter will also affect how well you do in this apocalyptic immersive theater show as well. Meaning that the story evolution, actions and outcome are different in every show.
