It's Like 'Sleep No More' But on a Boat: 'Ship of Dreams - The Titanic Experience' Is Coming in November

Sep 21, 2017 | 15:57 Thu
Hello, fans of legitimate art. Do you like your lines between audience and performer blurred? Your expectations of narrative development challenged and upended? Your whole idea of modern theater shattered and revolutionized? Have I got a show for you. Here's the elevator pitch: There's this new show opening this November in Shanghai, it's like Sleep No More. You know with the audience and actors all running around the place getting into adventures and stuff. That whole thing. Here's the kicker: It's on a boat in the Huangpu. And it's Titanic-themed. Yes!


Coming to us from Shanghai-based theater production company DreamWeaver working with The DeTao School of design is Ship of Dreams-The Titanic Experience, "an immersive and interactive experience that couples the mystery and excitement of the recent touring show, Sleep No More with high adventure in the waters of the Huangpu on an actual sailing vessel."

Really! What! Tell us more!

When our guests arrive on the dock of the ship, located conveniently on the Huangpu Piers by the ferry ride, they’re whisked away into the storyline of both factual and fictional characters who were on the Titanic's only journey. Characters known and unknown will play out scenarios that the passengers can either observe or participate in depending on the experience desired. First Class passengers will have a full 7-course dinner along with a tour of the ship with the Captain, while the passengers in 3rd Class will have a simple snack with a few free drinks thrown in to ease the journey and lots of chances to win their way “up”. Dancing, singing, mysterious plots of intrigue and conspiracy, love, romance and an ultimate dash for survival all included in this modern theater piece.

Sounds... intriguing! SmartTicket is slinging tickets for the show right here.
