Manhunt: Mystery In A Box

About The Show

MANHUNT: MYSTERY IN A BOX, part of IN THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT, is a co-production of Renaissance Theaterworks and Adirondack Theatre Festival. IN THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT is an interactive, zoom-based theatrical experience that is fun for the whole family. Suitable for all ages - bring your whole family to the couch. A Quarantine-friendly activity! 

You buy a ticket. You're delivered a box. Inside the box, you find a variety of objects, along with an invitation... beckoning you to solve a mysterious puzzle. You accept the invitation, and are connected online to a detective who needs the clues in your box to start connecting the pieces... but... the pieces to what? As the plot unfolds into a night of twists and turns –along with virtual live performances that plunge you deeper into a world of noir and intrigue –you realize this is about much more than random items in a box. You begin to wonder: in this virtual game of cat and mouse... Who's chasing who? And why is one of your objects a clock that's slowly counting down? And... perhaps most importantly of all... what happens when it hits zero?

Run time: 60 minutes.

About In The Box Entertainment

Renaissance Theaterworks & Adirondack Theatre Festival are excited to announce IN THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT, a series of live, interactive virtual experiences that entertain audiences from the comfort of their homes. All shows will include a box mailed to the ticket holder prior to the show, which will fuel their at-home, interactive experience. 

Renaissance Theaterworks is thrilled to bring this live, interactive, totally unique theater experience to our audiences! As the weather grows colder and outdoor gatherings prove more difficult, IN THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT offers a fun way to be social – safely. Although this is a bit of a departure from our typical provocative offerings, we are happy to provide an entertaining evening for the whole family.

IN THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT isn’t a consolation prize for not having live theatre; instead, an iteration of live theatre that benefits specifically from being digital. It's not putting our art form on Zoom, it's creating an art form for Zoom.
