Enter if you dare.

The 2023-24 Broadway season kicks off tomorrow night (April 29) as the door creaks ajar to Grey House, the new play beginning previews at the Lyceum Theatre; opening night is May 30. Written by Levi Holloway and directed by Joe Mantello, the cast features Laurie Metcalf, Tatiana Maslany, Paul Sparks, Sophia Anne Caruso, Millicent Simmonds, Cyndi Coyne, Colby Kipnes, Alyssa Emily Marvin, and Eamon Patrick O’Connell.

“When a couple crashes their car in the mountains, they seek shelter in an isolated cabin. Its inhabitants, though somewhat unusual, are eager to make their guests feel right at home. But as the blizzard outside rages on and one night turns into several, the couple becomes less and less sure of what’s true — about their hosts, themselves, and why that sound in the walls keeps getting louder.”

Who’s up for a scare?


Oh look, a bibu!

Pretty sure previews begin Saturday.  Looking to go after Camelot, but looks sold for more than single tickets (on my phone at least). 
 

Going to take this opportunity to make clear though: NO SPOILERS PLEASE!

You don't even want to know about Beanie Feldstein's guest appearance towards the end of the play?

I won’t be seeing this until the middle of May and trying to know as little as possible going in. I probably won’t check in here until after I see the show. Can’t wait! For those going between now and mid- May- have fun!!

She has completely moved on from anything involving Broadway. You're not funny. It's like people who keep insisting jokes about Lea not being able to read are still funny. They're not. Move on.

The TV spot is now ubiquitous on MSNBC, and simply fabulous.  A touch of Blair Witch, a whiff of The Ring, and fingers crossed, a script with some nooks and crannies like, say, Veronica's Room. I'm going to a preview news week.

About a week ago an instagram post was made with words written in Morse code that said decode DM the answer to win tickets. Grey House IG reply to someone said winners would be messaged directly if they won. Did anyone win? I’m not expecting to win but I haven’t seen anything from their instagram about it. And, they deleted the post with the Morse code message.

I got a ticket for the second preview. I usually wait until the second week but I really want to see this early in case there are spoilers.

I went to the movies the other day and saw an ad for this along with the trailers - Excellent marketing, I don't think I've ever seen that at a movie theater before.

It’s not unreasonable to expect reviews for a show like this to be spoiler free. I mean, people were bitching about spoilers being given away on the Sweeney Todd thread, and this is a brand new play.

Very smart approach for this show.

I was able to get a ticket a couple of hours ago, so it seems like there's still a shot for anyone looking to buy a single ticket. No options for two seats together unfortunately.

Ok, just got out of the show.

Still collection my thoughts, but initial reaction is that the production is excellently crafted, and the script is pretty fascinating. 

I’m not spoiling anything here, but if you really want to know *nothing at all* about the general vibe/experience, read at your own discretion. 

Some parts are definitely eerie and/or unnerving, but it’s not a play that I’d describe as a big “scare-fest.” It can be very funny at times too, and sometimes even hauntingly beautiful. Definitely some creeps and chills, but don’t expect a lot of jump scares. 

It’s also not a play that provides easy answers to its mysteries. I think I got the general idea at the end, but I definitely need time to process what exactly happened, and what the playwright was trying say with it. But I mean that in a good way; I’m going to be thinking a lot about it, and I’ll be very curious to read other people’s interpretations. But I could also see some people being turned off by it, and walking out more confused than thrilled.

The cast is great. This is probably Metcalf’s least showy stage role in recent years, but she’s obviously still great. The 4 young women in the play all work together so seamlessly; there’s a lot of finely-coordinated stage business between them, and they nailed it. Really feels like an ensemble piece, although I guess Tatiana Maslany’s role could be called the protagonist. 

I’d say the production is already is great shape. 

I was in the 2nd seat off the aisle, Mezzanine house left. There were definitely some moments upstage right that I missed, but mostly I felt like I saw everything important. The seat next to mine was considerably worse though, because of the curve of the row. The guy sitting next to me ended up standing at the back of the mezzanine for the whole show, and the person behind him complained at the end that she missed 90% of the play. So I guess the lesson is to avoid the far aisle seats if possible. But even 1 seat over made a big difference - I wasn’t upset with my view for $35, even with some noticeable restriction.
