This thoroughly cool, at times comical, and completely creepy show comes from the bordering-on-sick minds of Penn & Teller's Teller and performer-host Todd Robbins. This interactive theatrical experience opens in pitch blackness, where the ethereal sights, sounds -- and touches -- are all the more effective, achieved via the combination of wickedly clever ghost stories and eerie stage illusions. And you know you're in for a fun and terrifying time when the advisories include strobe effects, theatrical haze, interactive elements, adult themes -- and nudity. The show ran off-Broadway in 2010 to acclaim from The New York Times among others, which said "this wild, wicked show is not just a screamfest after all; it's a pretty good piece of theater."

Set in 1941, during the German occupation of Paris, Picasso is secreted to a dusty underground vault where he encounters a beautiful young Gestapo art critic-turned -interrogator. The sexy inquisitor's job is to get Picasso to authenticate three of his paintings amidst the vault full of artwork confiscated by the Nazis so that it can be publicly burned. It's Picasso under pressure. Who will win this cat-and-mouse game?
