Hey You Guys, Would You Go to an “Immersive Theater” Adaptation of The Goonies?
You must become the truffle shuffle.
Because swarming the real-life Goonies house and talk of a sequel aren’t enough to satiate true fans, director Richard Donner has revealed to Yahoo News that he’s developing an “immersive theater” adaptation of the Goonies that sounds like way too much fun.
According to Donner, the show will be staged in an empty warehouse with no seating area:
We’re going to do an off-Broadway, do you know what immersion theater is? Where there’s no seats, the venue is you go into a warehouse and there’s something happening in that warehouse and that’s the play you’ve come to see, only you become part of it and you travel through with actors. It’s very popular now. We’re doing one on The Goonies. It will take another year or so but it’s going to be wonderful.
Considering how many things the world of The Goonies has to fall in/slide down/climb over, this production basically sounds like it’ll be the world’s nerdiest playground. I can’t wait!
