From Off-Broadway

In the Marshall family’s peacefully remote Colorado ski chalet, Erik and Helene are making themselves very much at home. So at home, they just might stay for good. At the edge of civilization, the lifestyles of the rich collide with the lifestyles of the aimless in the bubbling waters of a hot tub...but beware what lurks beneath. 


REVIEWS

“Exquisitely rendered… Jacuzzi holds you rapt!” - Time Out New York, Read More

"[It] has the savor of a crime drama, leavened with a slacker comic vibe...the dialogue [is] weird and funny, and the hot tub plopped center stage looks so inviting it’s amazing audience members don’t strip off and slide in. Hot enough for you?” - The New Yorker, Read More

"A slow, killing pace appropriate to a Japanese horror movie. The tension is off the charts!" - Variety, Read More

"This mysterious theatrical striptease will haunt your thoughts for days after you leave the theater…Jacuzzi slowly turns up the heat until the audience is in boiling water without even noticing." - Theatre Mania, Read More
