I had only done Capital W’s “Hamlet Mobile” before so I was very excited to attend “Red Flags”. “Red Flags” is an immersive, one on one, piece that puts you on a first date with Emma (played by Lauren Flans). Emma is a cute, nervous girl who has some…issues. One of the strengths of this show is that the “issues” are not over the top, they’re real world. This definitely helps you connect on an emotional level with Emma. As soon as she starts talking, you forget that this was a show that you got a ticket and time for, this was now a first date.

Red Flags is an intimate journey exploring the worries and fears in dating. It puts two people together and forces them to be present and to share, and may even lead to an unexpected connection on a bad date. This is the beauty of Red Flags: it is unapologetically real and honest. It will make you feel something for Emma; it will push you outside of your comfort zone; and it will leave you inextricably intertwined with someone who was a stranger only hours prior. If you are a fan of interactive theater, want to feel something real, or just yearn for a connection with another person—I urge you to see this show. See review for full thoughts. ... full review
