About Inside the Box

Inside the Box takes us into the exhilarating world of games with New York Times crossword constructor David Kwong. Less than thirty guests will have a front-row seat to an entirely interactive show of puzzles, while David regales them with stories of the most extraordinary puzzle-makers throughout history. This incredibly smart and wildly entertaining event is filled with wordplay, multi-layered games, and surprises that will leave your mind blown. Log on, put on your thinking caps, and join in the fun.

Every morning at 9AM PT, five viewing-only Rush tickets will be made available for that day's show(s) on a first-come, first-served basis on the TodayTix mobile app. Rush ticket holders will receive a Puzzle Packet & Zoom log-in details via email from Geffen Playhouse — although purchasers won't be able to interact directly with David or the other participants, they are encouraged to print and use the puzzle packet to enjoy the show at home (like watching Jeopardy, or Wheel of Fortune!) If any regular ticket holders don't show up, Rush ticket holders may be randomly selected to be upgraded into a participating spot in the show!
