I'm going to try to be apolitical about my response to this show, but we'll see how that goes lol. The show's fantastic, first off. I'm an actor, so I know what a hard time it is to work in the round and among the audience as these performers do. The blocking is impecible and has clearly been fine-tuned over... More

This 1692 re-enactment of a town meeting (essentially today's grand jury process) was spot on. Young actors and actresses play multiple roles as they work through witnesses and accusations of Goodie Bishop, the accused witch practitioner. The experience engages the audience with many subtle and direct twists and turns; crowd participation encouraged. It's well worth both time and money.

While it is more than possible to walk the streets of Salem and see a variety of roaming character actors or individuals dressed as a variety of witches, the Cry Innocent experience was both entertaining and loaded with substance. A piece of interactive history that was well worth the price!

Bought tickets online as a package deal with another business - the whole ticket process at both locations was unclear & confusing. At this presentation they gathered 120 people on the street where a very brief precursor performance started things off. It was difficult to hear & I was near the front. We then filed in to a second floor... More

Great reenactment. The actors did a great job at being in the moment, play different roles, and interact with the audience. The audience serve as part of the trial and can ask questions to either the defendant, the accusers, or the judge. Highly recommend it.

A good take, however, I would definitely suggest doing the Salem Witch Museum first to have a better understanding on the background and history of what took place.

We just came back from a long weekend in Salem and this show was one of the best we attended. My kids are ages 18 and 12 and both left saying positive things. We especially love the beginning when Bridget is arrested in the courtyard. VERY interactive. Our group was also very open to asking questions of the actors which... More

Loved how they started the show out in the main street with everyone gathered around. All of the actors were very invested in their parts and able to improvise well. Audience participation is encouraged. Beware that if it is a hot day, the venue is not air conditioned.

I learned a lot by watching and participating in this witch trail. The actors played multiple roles, but did so with creative (and quick) costume changes. It was well worth the money spent to see this.
