So many theater companies label their shows “immersive” these days that the term can feel like little more than a synonym for “hip.” But five adventurous and meticulous companies consistently produce work that incorporates all (or most) of the six elements that define the immersive genre at its best, as I explain in my article for TDF Stages, 5 Theatres You Need to Know: Immersive Companies in NYC
Below is a list of those companies, with photographs from their shows, past or present, and links to some of my reviews or features.
Punchdrunk: Sleep No More
Third Rail Projects: Then She Fell, Grand Paradise, Ghost Light
Woodshed Collective: KPOP, Empire Travel Agency
This is Not A Theater Company: Pool Play, Cafe Play, Versailles
