Here’s What’s Weird and Wonderful in NYC (Jan. 18 Edition)
You know what they say: Another week, another TodayTix roundup of all things Weird and Wonderful. We’re here to help you out of that freezing-weather-induced funk, so say goodbye to Marie Kondo and buckle up buttercups, this week’s list is a good one. Largest VR attraction in North America? Check. Immersive performance at a gay bar in Brooklyn? Check. Read on and prosper, you beautiful weirdos.
Being the largest VR attraction in North America is pretty cool. Said exhibit having an onsite bar? Even cooler. Pop on some VR goggles and transport yourself to a whole new (virtual) world.
The 24 Hour Plays 2019
Six writers, six directors and 24 actors create and perform six short plays in 24 hours. Sounds easy!
No rehearsals, no problem. Wait…what? “Nassim” is an innovative new play that explores the power of language, and with a different guest actor at every performance, there’s all the more reason to grab tickets to multiple showings of this groundbreaking new work.
Times Square Literary Pub Crawl
The holidays are (finally) over, and it’s time to step out of your comfort zone. Times Square may be crowded, but it’s also the place where some of New York’s most iconic literary moments came to pass. This three hour walking tour combines New York’s literary history with a pub crawl. It’s perfect.
OSCAR at The Crown
Brooklyn, Williamsburg, 21+
Queer dance party musical about Oscar Wilde + The Real Housewives? Yeah. “OSCAR at The Crown” is an immersive nightclub musical detailing the rise and fall of one of history’s most flamboyant characters.
The Law Firm: Law and Disorder
This interactive show from the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater takes the audience’s gripes and spins them into comedy gold. Get your sob stories ready — UCB’s finest improvisers will turn one audience member’s testimony into a fully improvised show.
The Hidden Ones
A *little* more serious than your average Weird and Wonderful show, “The Hidden Ones” deserves the spotlight. Set at the end of World War II, this dance-heavy immersive piece brings audience members to a secret location where they’re smuggled into a world of true stories of those forced into hiding.
