This Halloween, UglyRhino turns The Brooklyn Lyceum into a brand new spooky, boozy warehouse of tragedies and terrors. Following the success of Halloween 2011′s Warehouse of Horrors, UglyRhino will return with six brand new stories and curated cocktails. With a similar format as the sold-out run of March's Centralia, the UglyRhino creative team has developed a new interactive warehouse experience, based on the true events from in and around the Brooklyn Lyceum, which will expand to include a haunted house element.
Warehouse of Horrors: Gowanus '73 explores the seedy underbelly of 1970's Brooklyn. After a string of mysterious and grotesque murders at an underground rave party, a complex web of mafia relations, crooked cops, and dangerous drug dealers is revealed. A peek into the twisted and true history of the area, the show combines non-traditional storytelling with a social atmosphere, enveloping audiences deep into the world of the play as they encounter characters, hear their stories and sip on cocktails. Each audience member of Warehouse of Horrors: Gowanus '73 will have a distinctly unique experience as they travel around The Warehouse and try to ensure they are not the next one to go.
UglyRhino's Warehouse of Horrors: Gowanus '73 will run October 11-November at The Brooklyn Lyceum (227 4th Avenue at Union Street, Brooklyn), Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm. Tickets ($20) are available at the door, 30 minutes prior to the show. All ticket purchases will include 3 free curated cocktails.
