Better Ways To Touch Each Other in the Dark!

Enjoyed it, but the whole time was wishing I was enjoying it more. While indeed the master of ceremonies is masterful in his delivery, the show as a whole is at times little more than a gimmicky excuse for getting lovers, or potential lovers to squeeze closer together and surreptitiously touch each other in the dark -yes, FUN for that, though I can think of many other different ways to achieve that as well. Fans of side shows and carnivals will totally find it scary good, though some might find it better received around Halloween, when anyone and everyone is looking for a good excuse to be spooked - and touched in the dark. Now, if you are looking for other ways to connect with each other - with or without the cover of complete darkness - check out more ways by finding me on FaceBook: Pure Romance by Andreea

RE:Play Dead

Robbins is a masterful master-of-ceremonies and Teller?s acts are always a delight. And I do enjoy walking through a well-planned haunted house; So Play Dead did get reaction from me as well as from the audience. A loud noise in a still dark room will evoke that response. Someone pokes in the dark, you jump. A mouse is held close to a mouth and you see red spattering, you gag. Lots of gimmick and little craft. Considering the talent, very juvenile and disappointing. It seemed to have been written with wit for a nit.
