About this show

Based on a true NYC murder case, Speakeasy Dollhouse immerses audience in a surreal, Prohibition-era time capsule featuring live jazz, burlesque, mobsters, moonshine and more.

Transporting audiences to an era of mobsters, moonshine, and murder, Cynthia von Buhler's Speakeasy Dollhouse, one of the city's most unique, interactive, and surreal theatre experiences, proudly celebrated its two-year anniversary in October 2013. Performing to sold-out audiences since October 2011, Speakeasy Dollhouse brings an actual unsolved Prohibition-era murder to life in the downtown building that once served as mobster Meyer Lansky's hangout.

This is an immersive event. Each guest is assigned a role when they show up. Audience members are encouraged to explore and talk to strangers. Unlocked doors (or revolving bookshelves) should be entered.
