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.
