Live Musical Theatre
PC, Mac, Web, Oculus Quest 2, Other VR
Imagine if a Disney musical came to life and interacted with the audiences in what Fame Magazine calls “a dream-pop immersive experience between VR and live theater… a flawless blend of Broadway, games, pop, and comedy bliss.” The Rich Mix London hosted Brendan Bradley’s NON-PLAYER CHARACTER, a live, virtual reality stage show about a non-player character in a video game who witnesses the death of the Hero and turns to the audience to navigate the five stages of grief. Four audience members join a live actor on-stage, wearing virtual reality headsets while the virtual world and characters are projected on the big screen for the seated spectators to watch, like an animated film come to life. A QR code allows audiences to access a program on their mobile phones that transforms during the show into an interactive menu to vote and spawn virtual props to help the narrative.
