F. A. Q.


Q. What should I expect from your shows?

Live In Theater is truly an immersive, interactive experience. The actors will be asking audience members questions directly. Since the experience takes place on the streets of New York, you’re in an exposed environment, unprotected by the walls of a theater. This is unlike any play you’ve seen before. Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone and learn to play along with the actors!


Q. What if I’m running late?

LIT observes a strict no late seating (or standing) policy. We value your time and the time of our performers. If you’re late, the show will start without you and you will miss crucial information. Plan ahead!


Q. I have mobility issues. Should I attend a Live In Theater event?

As our shows take place mostly outdoors, there is a lot of walking involved. If you feel that you could not comfortably walk/move for 1 ½ hours, please consider booking a private event with us. We can often configure our highly-customizable shows to take place indoors and even in the comfort of your own home.


Q. I have small children. Can they come to your shows?

Due to the mature nature of most of our shows, our audience is generally limited to ages 16+ . In the case of our Murder Mysteries, that take place at a bar the age limit is 21+. Adult material includes drug use, strong language, and dark themes. If you are interested in a show for kids, we are happy to tailor our show to you in the form of a private event! Please contact us for more information, and we would be happy to answer any questions you might have.


Q. Can I bring bags/backpacks to your shows?

We do not recommend bringing large bags to the shows, as audiences will be standing and walking for 1 – 1 ½ hours. We will have a place for you to store them, though we are not responsible for any property loss.


Q. The show is outdoors. Can I bring my dog?

As much as we all love dogs, please do not bring pets to the performance. Of course, we welcome service animals.


Q. Can I talk to the actors during the show?

Please do! Unlike traditional plays, our experiences are meant to be interactive, and they work best when the audience talks to the actors, asks questions, and plays along with the actors.


Q. Can I take pictures during the show?

The use of photography and videography are prohibited. However, you are welcome to take photographs with your favorite cast members after the show. 


Q. What if it rains?

Please bring an umbrella if it looks like rain! In case of a heavy rain, the show will continue indoors. We take great care for the well being of both our audiences and our actors and are always on the lookout for extreme weather conditions. If the temperature drops below 40 degrees, or if it rises above 95 degrees all performances will be also held indoors.


Q. Is Open Bar included on all tickets? 

No, it’s a separate option you can add to your General Admission ticket as you make a purchase on our website. It is also available at the door.
