Join us for Live In Theater’s latest interactive family-friendly show premiering at the New-York Historical Society! And participate in the trial Typhoid Mary never received. The year is 1915 and there’s a silent killer in our midst. One mystery woman is spreading deadly typhoid fever everywhere she goes and it’s up to YOU to stop her.

Traveling throughout the Museum’s galleries, audience members will work together to unravel the story of this real-life historical figure, delve into the motives behind her actions, and maybe even re-write a bit of history. Was Typhoid Mary a villain or a victim? You decide!

Following on the footsteps of The Pinkertonian Mystery, The Trial of Typhoid Mary is Live In Theater’s second original immersive mystery experience at the New-York Historical Society. See below for praise for Live In Theater’s first production at the Museum.

"Part history lesson, part Law & Order episode, this interactive procedural is like a murder-mystery dinner for kids—but one their parents will also enjoy."
Jonathan Murad, Macaroni Kids

“As we ran around the galleries interviewing suspects and deciphering clues, I became just as invested in the outcome as my kid. We had a blast, and it’s a novel and engaging way to explore this worthy museum.”
Raven Snook, Mommy Poppins

“The play is a real winner. Everybody learns a lot about crime and about history. The New-York Historical Society has struck gold with this interactive theater idea.”
Bruce Chadwick, History News Network
