Incredible!!! This show is the one to catch. The intimate Union Square venue gives you a rare opportunity to see Broadway caliber acting in a small theater environment.

This show involves set-up and break-down of the whole set every weekend. It takes place in Hotel Cartwright's events room. The play itself is a suspenseful story but the acting and design made it a fun night.

We loved it--an intimate space, with a fast-paced, witty script and great acting. We're going to be looking for their shows in the future.

Go see this play! The tightly-written plot unfolds gradually and so it's very satisfying to "solve" the puzzle along with the characters. It's also supremely well-acted: like watching Kathy Bates and Robert DeNiro in a cat-and-mouse game. The...continued

The venue arrangement of Dead Certain really takes you out of the audience and places you just feet away from the actors as the story unfolds. The thrilling story is smooth and does not leave any loose ends.

This is a play very similar to "Deathtrap" in that it is a very artifical premise involving sudden changes of perspective and misdirection, leading to a final surprise. Well executed for what it is
