Creep AWAKE: ROW DTLA Celebrates Halloween With LA’s Hottest Haunted House
Halloween is right around the corner and ROW DTLA has brought one Los Angeles’ most exciting and immersive haunts to their beautiful campus. From now thru November 4th, “Creep: AWAKE” is taking over an entire floor of one of ROW DTLA’s warehouse building, lulling guests into a very disturbing sleep.
“They say if you tell someone your nightmares they go away,” teases Justin Fix, the director/producer of “Creep: AWAKE.”
“We are hoping to let people explore the deep dark world of what dreaming is. When we sat down in the writing room we’re just like, ‘Your brain at night is in the wildest state where you can come up with absurd, bizarre, crazy, nasty things. The next moment you wake up, and it was all just a dream.’ What happens when you get to spend some time in those worlds?”
“ROW DTLA is an incredible property,” says Fix. “The coolest thing for me as a creator in LA has always been the unique spaces we have here, so to be able to collaborate with Atlas Capital and ROW DTLA...they have been the epitome of a true partner. They’re going out on a limb, offering entertainment to their campus but also giving us actors and producers a space to produce on such a high level. I finally have the space that I want and the partnership that I need to do what I want.”
In addition to providing “Creep: AWAKE” with the space they need, ROW DTLA is pulling out all the stops to give “Creep: AWAKE’s” audience a fully rounded experience. Rappahannock, the excellent oyster bar/restaurant on the ROW DTLA campus is offering an incredible $40 prix fixe deal for attendees of the immersive haunt, as well as an extended happy hour to calm guest’s rattled nerves pre- and post-show.
Anthony Ko, Rappahannock’s General Manager, says that Rappahannock was interested in the partnership because it sounded like an exciting event. “Late at night, we’re watching all of these crazy lights and sounds going off inside of the warehouse. It looked really cool!”
For Fix, working with Rappahannock allows guests to regather and converse after their show. “Not everyone gets to see the entirety of the show, some scenes are only seen by one person,” Fix says. “When a group of friends is divided it’s nice to come back and reminisce and converse and B.S. with each other.”
“Creep: AWAKE” is already generating strong buzz, with celebrities like Anna Kendrick, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and Lance Bass surviving the nightmares inside.
The show runs thru November 4th, and as in year’s past, there is a strong possibility that it will sell out. Don’t sleep on these tickets.
