This is an immersive performance that requires you to stand and walk for the show. The show lasts approximately 90 minutes. House opens at 7:30PM and there is a bar where drinks may be purchased. There will be no late seating, please be at the theatre before 8PM

Freaks Don't Cry is an immersive experience inspired by Coney Island's acclaimed sideshow. The year is 1975 and none other than Fred Trump is seeking to evict the resident freaks from their home. Our cast is seeking a daring audience, enthusiastic about joining the act and helping to save the sideshow from obscurity. We are also inviting the possibility of a single audience member getting to be initiated as an honorary freak for the night. Perhaps we will finally learn the true price of transformation.
