Special Family Event
The Trial of Typhoid Mary
Friday, April 1st, 2016 | 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
(Members $40)

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. Come be a part of the trial Typhoid Mary never endured in Live In Theater’s latest interactive family-friendly show at the New-York Historical Society!

Traveling throughout the Museum’s galleries, audience members will work together to uncover 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!

The Trial of Typhoid Mary will be Live In Theater’s second original immersive mystery experience at the New-York Historical Society. See below for praise for The Pinkertonian Mystery, 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
