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."

Interesting premise, not well delivered. Overwrought acting and the script gets very obvious and preachy and redundant. The idea simply doesn't have enough meat in it to sustain a 90 min presentation. Could be interesting as one of a three mini-play evening.
Build is a recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award.
The running time for Build is 90 minutes, with no intermission.
