Last night at CV at the Hotel Rivington, guests came out for the innovative project LARGO, a theatrical production that describes its mix with reality in one word: Theality. The performance drew crowds involved in New York City nightlife and displayed a play on cinema verite--real people and real characters with a twist.

Brought to stage by writer David Alex Andrejko with direction by Ellen Orenstein, whose style is a mixture between David Lynch and Anne Bogart, LARGO is a new theatrical form that caters to its audience. The production included a series of firsts, not only the surprising situations on stage, but also a site specific lounge that allowed guests to drink before and after the performance, and free tickets to those who cannot afford them.
