Cassandra Daily:

Habit, an immersive production self-described as “The Real World meets No Exit,” opens this fall not at a theatre but at Manhattan’s Essex Street Market. Director David Levine conceived of the faux cinéma vérité show while transitioning from theatrical performance to visual art exhibitions, a change that motivated him to create a work that’s as accessible for spectators as perusing a gallery. The result is a fully furnished and functional ranch house where three actors will perform for 90 minutes on a continuous loop for eight hours a day. Though the dialogue stays the same, behavior is improvised—meaning roaming spectators may see anything, and everything, from cooking to showering.
