...guests will find themselves immersed in an era of Swank Spies, Mad Men Capitalists, and Seductive Communist Sympathizers...
(PRWEB) November 29, 2014
Aces and Operatives (Aces & Operatives), the world’s only James Bond 007 themed role-play group, and Moscow 57, the Russian Central Asian restaurant and live-music venue on New York City’s Lower East Side, have announced a new co-production. On December 13, 2014, they will present Danger Lair: From Moscow With Love: an immersive, transformative, Cold War, spy vs. spy role-play and musical experience that will transport guests back to a romantic, bygone era of espionage, music, and international mystery.
Danger Lair is Aces & Operatives’ signature theatrical event. The magic of Danger Lair is that it’s designed so everyone can be involved in the social adventure. Participation is quite simple. Upon arrival guests are handed a secret envelope that contains information about their character and secret team. Guests will then be compelled to interact with others in the hopes of finding the fellow team members so they can save the world from the extremist elements within the venue. In the end, each decision made by every attendee will shape the course of the evening’s storyline, which will result in a climatic and spontaneous conclusion.
Danger Lair can be best described as part costumed cabaret, part murder mystery, and part interactive social theater. From Moscow With Love will present guests with a classic 1960’s Cold War theme, when the world was a simpler place, but who could be trusted was far more complicated.
“The beauty of Aces & Operatives’ collaboration with Moscow 57 is theme. Unlike a traditional theater show where attendees sit in darkened seats and are passively focused on a stage, Moscow 57 will be transformed into a “time machine” where guests will find themselves immersed in an era of Swank Spies, Mad Men Capitalists, and Seductive Communist Sympathizers, all of whom will be vying for attention,” said Moscow 57 owner Ellen Kaye, who will be performing that evening. Moscow 57 will provide the look, feel, sounds, and tastes of the period. Aces & Operatives will provide the stories, special characters, and social motivations.
With a cast that mingles side-by-side guests, Russian and American musical artists including Cleve Douglass, Grace Garland and Cici James, Yuri Lemshev, Katya Lapaeva, Dmitry and Maria and Ellen Kaye with the M57 Band, food that captures the tastes of ‘Mother Russia’, plus the unique social game designs of the Aces & Operatives team,
From Moscow With Love will be a unique event, where the audience can take a journey back to the timeless years of Sean Connery’s James Bond, Mad Men, and the hip and dapper spies of the 1960’s.
Moscow 57 is located at 168 ½ Delancey Street, New York City (212) 260-5775. Tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased at http://www.acesandops.com/tickets/
