In 1840s New Orleans, cotton is king and money flows freely along the Mighty Mississippi. But all is not as it seems. Different factions of society battle for control of the city. Do your loyalties lie with the elegant Creoles, the seductive vampires, the roguish vagabonds, the adventurous pirates, or the voodoo practitioners? Choose wisely, because in this interactive thriller, you are in control, and one wrong move could spell disaster.

Lisa Fritscher and Andy Frack are excited to announce the worldwide debut of their new interactive theater experience, New Orleans: The Beginnings, at the Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival this month. Under the umbrella of their production company, Gini Lynn Productions, LLC, the show serves as an hour-long proof of concept and prequel for a two-hour permanent installation they plan to open in the fall.

But this is no ordinary theatrical production. Rather than sitting in a seat watching the action unfold, audience members (players) will be right in the middle of it. As new immigrants to historical New Orleans, they will physically navigate through an outdoor tavern, meeting and interacting with the local citizens. Nothing is as it seems, as each person has his or her own agenda, and the decisions players make may affect not only what happens on the night they attend, but also the larger show to follow this fall.

Why This Show?

Producer Andy Frack explains, “We want to change the world. Everything has become so divisive lately, and it is our hope that by taking people back to the challenges of the 1840s, we can get people thinking and talking about the issues that divide us today. People are just people, but stereotypes and preconceived notions make that tough to remember. If we can break down those barriers, we can find ways to work together instead of tearing each other apart.”

Due to the interactive nature of this experience, tickets are extremely limited. They have been on sale since April 17, so time is of the essence! Tickets are available through Orlando Fringe at https://orlandofringe.showare.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=100 Prospective players are also encouraged to visit the show website at nobeginnings.com and subscribe to the newsletter for updates.

The Fringe show is rated PG-13 for thematic content and language. Vampire myths, voodoo practices, slavery, homelessness, and harsh moral dilemmas are explored in an up-close and personal way. Players will be asked to think through issues, make tough decisions, and influence the citizens’ daily lives.

This spine chilling musical tells the tale of an unjustly exiled barber, who returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun! This special Edition has been masterfully adapted, working directly with Mr. Sondheim to retain the dark wit and grand scope of the original work.  The cast includes youth actors ages 13-17 who have been developing their performance skills with Winter Springs Performing Arts education programs.  Rated PG-13
