Then She Fell is a fully immersive, multi-sensory experience in which only 15 audience members per performance explore a dreamscape where every alcove, corner, and corridor has been transformed into a lushly designed world. Inspired by the life and writings of Lewis Carroll, it offers an Alice-like experience for audience members as they explore the rooms, often by themselves, in order to discover hidden scenes; encounter performers one-on-one; unearth clues that illuminate a shrouded history; use skeleton keys to gain access to guarded secrets; and imbibe elixirs custom designed by one of NYC’s foremost mixologists.
PRaise for then she fell
"I had given myself over completely to the story, to the poignant predicament of a flawed man condemned to a moment for eternity, trapped with his memories and his yearnings, sitting alone in a pool of tears. The image has haunted me ever since, more so because of the sense that I was complicit in it, if only for a moment. You cannot feel more immersed than that."
– Sarah Lyall, The New York Times
“This show occupies a dreamscape where the judgments and classifications of the waking mind are inoperative, and where the single self keeps splitting and blurring.”
– Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“… haunting, hallucinatory, and profoundly intimate.”
– Adam Green, VOGUE
“… a lush, if fragmented story arrives by way of the exacting, exuberant choreography.”
By Siobhan Burke - The New York Times
“wildly imaginative… an anxiety-provoking but exciting theatrical encounter… Wonderfully written, directed, and choreographed.”
By New Yorker Staff - The New Yorker
“It requires us to have an ease that we would have in everyday life,” says co-creator Tom Pearson, who plays the White Rabbit, sans bunny suit. “It’s very cinematic. When the screen is right there in front of your face, it picks up everything. It’s the same when you’re in a room with someone.”
By Diep Tran - American Theatre Magazine
“an enthralling theatrical spell is being woven… as unsettling as it is enchanting.”
By John Del Signore - The Gothamist
“Then She Fell’ will offer a more deliberately crafted experience… to allow all of the guests to discover and accumulate bits of story until they leave with the satisfaction of having co-created, with the show itself, a narrative arc and resolution.”
By Lizzie Simon - The Wall Street Journal
CRITIC’S PICK | 4 STARS: “Stunningly personal… When you peer into the looking glass, it stares right back at you.”

Just saw @thenshefell. Started the day nervous, ended it transported. Wonderful. If I had a hat I’d tip it.
If you liked SLEEP NO MORE, you're going to love THEN SHE FELL. In Brooklyn, NY. Amazing and totally unique.
Finally got to see @thenshefell last night and was blown away. Tea parties, bedtime stories and hat fittings-immersive theatre at its best.
@thenshefell I think about TSF everyday, so grateful for the inspiration I've drawn from the beautiful things you all have shown me. BRAVO!
Saw @thenSheFell tonight. Loved it. Similar to Sleep No More, but without the free roaming or chaos. Highly recommended.
@thenshefell will be in my thoughts and dreams for a long while. Thank you for encouraging my curiosity (and restoring my faith)
Highly recommend the immersive theater experience of @thenshefell - can someone find the "Liminality" monologue that opens the experience?
@thenshefell - the most mind-blowing immersive theater experience I've ever had
After seeing @thenshefell last night I cannot decipher what things I saw last night at the show and what things I dreamed of afterwards.
Last night I painted white roses red with the rabbit & peered through looking glass w/ alice. best nyc show yet! http://nyti.ms/1fwf7p1
Amazing and poetic. Was blown away by Third Rail Projects "Then She Fell". http://instagram.com/p/k8wqPwEJTH/
Was delighted by the intimacy of @thenshefell last night. As 1 of 15 in audience, you are face to face with the performers as in a dream.
Totally amazed by @thenshefell tonight (and now I want all of my cocktails to be served in mini beakers)
One of the most innovative, immersive pieces of theater I have ever seen. @thenshefell Speechless!
Wow, @thenshefell is a haunting experience. Loved getting completely drawn into this dark but beautiful world.
Loved the super immersive @thenSheFell experience. Highly recommended. We've been talking about it nonstop.
GUYS! I highly recommend going to @thenshefell as fast as you can. One of the best theater experiences Ive ever had. I LOVED every min of it
Also, Then She Fell was an incredible experience. Immersive theater piece about love, growing up, identity, & consent. Highly recommended.
