Dungeons & Dragons keeps evolving across platforms. The beloved game keeps growing and changing. For its next leap, the tabletop game will head to the stage for the first-ever official Dungeons & Dragons theatrical production. The Twenty-Sided Tavern is an interactive theatrical adventure from Wizards of the Coast, Hasbro, Curious Hedgehog, and Showpath Entertainment. This production began as a D&D-style roleplaying game on the stage and has transformed into experiential entertainment.

The Twenty-Sided Tavern has had limited showings in Chicago, Pittsburg, and The Edinburgh Fringe festival. Experiences sold out. But now the show will be settled in at Stage 42 in New York City. Previews begin on April 19, and the show officially opens on May 5. Here’s how Wizards describes the experience:

At Dungeons & Dragons The Twenty-Sided Tavern, the audience is not just a viewer but the “fourth player,” influencing key decisions via Gamiotics, a browser-based software that allows you to vote on where the story will go — what characters appear, what experiences they explore, and more. With a cast of five actors and over 30 playable characters, audiences will experience an expansive fantasy world set in the Forgotten Realms, and face riddles, puzzles, combat, and more, to help shape the story. Laughter will flow like ale and with the audience in full control and exciting reveals around every corner, no two shows are alike! For those seeking a more daring experience, there are opportunities to join the action onstage and test your strength (or dexterity, or wisdom, or charisma) through a variety of rollicking games, including trivia, charades, and the ever-popular Fantasy Beer Pong. Featuring behind-the-scenes talent from popular theatrical shows such as Dimension 20, Marvel’s Rogers: The Musical, Beavis and Butthead and more, Dungeons & Dragons The Twenty-Sided Tavern is the game you know and the experience you’ll love but bigger and better than ever.
