Act 1: What is Interactive Theater NYC or Around the World?

Customarily, theater performances are presented on a specified stage, with audience members as the observers. However, creative directors have expanded the traditional theater boundaries and developed the concept of interactive theater. Interactive theater NYC and throughout the globe, is now a popular presentational style which breaks the fourth wall; a figurative wall used to describe the separation of the audience members from the performers. This type of theatrical presentation was pioneered in London and flourished in New York City. Interactive theater allows for the participation of the audience members physically and verbally in the performance. Interactive theater NYC offers the opportunity for teambuilding and positive group activities for adults because of the interactional aspects of the play for audience members.

  • Actively intervenes in the performance. The audience is asked to dynamically interfere in the production as bonafide cast members. Audience members are invited to use their imaginations and creativity as they participate in the interactive theater NYC performance. They get to go back in time and embrace their characters. 
  • Involved in more active roles.  During interactive theater NYC performances, audience members are involved in more active roles. Audience members might interact with performers, other audience members, or become characters in the play. 
  • Directly impact the outcome of the performance.  Interactive theater NYC allows for audience members to express themselves creatively; the story develops because of the interactions between the actors and audience members.  Live In Theater actors are extraordinary masters of interactive theater. The creative director has developed techniques that allow audience members to engage in the team building games which are surprising to the participants and everyone who experiences the shows.


The excitement of the unexpected is what helps interactive theater to be engaging and exhilarating. The term interactive theater is sometimes used interchangeably with immersive theater NYC in describing broad forms of theater found on stages throughout the world.

Act 2: What is Immersive Theater New York City and Beyond?

Immersive theater NYC and interactive theater NYC and elsewhere, both define in new ways the relationship between the performer and audience different from traditional theater; specifically by giving the audience a more direct role than a seated, static audience. However, there are subtle differences between interactive and immersive theater NYC wherever and whenever the fourth wall is removed. 

  • Places audience members within the actual story.  As the name implies in immersive theater, everything is the stage and the audience members are immersed within the story-world. There is no area considered outside of the world created by the story. The spatial separation is gone in immersive theater.
  • May have an interactive role or may not. The audience members in some immersive theater NYC venues may be acknowledged by the actors, or they might remain silent. Immersive theater can be interactive, however, it is not a required component as is expected when participating in interactive theater. 
  • Somehow communes with the performers. Trending immersive theater NYC and other progressive settings ask audience members to become a part somehow of the performance; sometimes with actual verbal participation and other times simply being present in the space.
