Review by AARON DOWNES

June 26, 2016 certified reviewer

What I liked

A very unique interactive experience. As we walked the streets of Hollywood, led by various characters, it was hard to tell who was an “actor” and who was a normal pedestrian that got caught up in the walking play. The addition of an aural experience, via headphones, gives you an insight as to what schizophrenics might experience. During the audience’s journey, they are challenged to help the various characters they meet, which I thought to be an interesting existential challenge – how many people in need do we pass on the street everyday that we choose to ignore, for fear that they may lead us into their own sordid and crazy lives.

What I didn't like

The plotline of the play varies depending on the audience. If you have a group of very active participants, you can go much deeper into the storyline and get a much deeper experience. Unfortunately, my group was a little passive. I felt I missed the full experience that was possible because of the audience.

My overall impression

A very unique interactive experience. As we walked the streets of Hollywood, led by various characters, it was hard to tell who was an “actor” and who was a normal pedestrian that got caught up in the walking play.
