Third Rail Projects brings their unique blend of immersive performance and invites audiences into the unseen corners of the theater to explore the world on the other side of the proscenium. The Lincoln Center Theater production of GHOST LIGHT is a performance about performance, which navigates through a series of real and dreamlike landscapes beyond the footlights, the glitter, and the greasepaint. It is a benevolent haunting that reflects on the smoke and mirrors, superstitions, and stage magic that conjure the mystique of the theater.

Hailed as one of the foremost companies creating site-specific, immersive and experiential dance and theater, Third Rail Projects, led by artistic directors Zach Morris, Tom Pearson, and Jennine Willett, is dedicated to re-envisioning ways in which audiences engage with contemporary performance. They have made work in New York, nationally, and abroad since 2000. Their currently running, award-winning immersive hit Then She Fell, was named as one of the “Top Ten Shows of 2012” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, and acclaimed as one of the best theater experiences of 2013 by Vogue.

A series of consecutive multi-week engagements of GHOST LIGHT are being planned for performing arts centers for the 2019-2020 season.

Reviews

“‘Ghost Light’ is a spectral tour of the hoary legends, superstitions and rituals that remain sacrosanct in the hearts of even the most jaded playmakers… Third Rail are masters of the skewed perspective.”
– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Ghost Light, conceived and directed by Zach Morris and Jennine Willett and performed by a cast 16 strong, is the type of interactive show that should be replicated in every theater town in the country with a yen to take audiences by the hands — literally — and remind them of what the stage can do that no other entertainment platform can.”
– Peter Marks, The Washington Post

Selection – One of the 19 best Plays and Musicals of 2017
– Buzzfeed

“… a Third Rail Projects extravaganza… Ghost Light demonstrates that theater really is a job; for all the out-front posturing and drama, the production is a collaboration among many craftspeople with diverse skills. For two hours it keeps you so busy running and climbing, snaking through narrow passageways, fielding flying props and taking orders from people you’ve barely met, that you manage to forget the mess in the outside world.”
– Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice

“Highbrow/Brilliant”
– New York Magazine

“GHOST LIGHT is enthralling not only because it brings us inside the warren of rooms normally off limits to the audience — but also because it brings us inside the minds and hearts of the actors and playwrights and ushers who inhabit them.”
– Jennifer Vanasco, WNYC

“Ghost Light is the rare show that feels like it would be rewarded from a repeat visit, it’s the kind of show that you want to get lost in regardless of the consequence.”
– Jose Solis, Stagebuddy

“GHOST LIGHT, in its way, pays tribute to the art and artists passing through our lives, people whom we only think we know and whom we can’t hold onto–except in memory.”
– Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Infinite Body

“Our goal in commissioning Third Rail was to attract and engage younger audiences; the show succeeded in that effort and exceeded our wildest expectations. The show also succeeded in bringing in new audiences – and audiences loved it. A large percentage of this audience has come back to another production, proving that this work can be a gateway for the audiences of the future.”

– Charles Varin, Managing Director – Denver Center for the Performing Arts
