Inspired by Dante’s “The Divine Comedy,” in which a man journeys through the Nine Circles of Hell, this interactive theatrical experience takes the escape-room genre to the next level. Ten audience members have 60 minutes in which to navigate their way through a futuristic nightmare, guided and, in many instances, hindered by a company of actors. Special effects add to the emotional and psychological experience.
