The Twenty-Sided Tavern, a Dungeons & Dragons live theatrical experience in NYC

The Twenty-Sided Tavern is an all-new, unique, and audience-engaging production that just might involve dungeons, possibly even dragons, and is guaranteed to be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced!

Dungeons & Dragons is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and as part of the festivities the producers behind some of the best live shows including MONOPOLY Lifesized, The Paddington Bear Experience and The SpongeBob Musical present The Twenty Sided Tavern!

At Dungeons & Dragons The Twenty-Sided Tavern, the audience is not just a viewer but the “fourth player,” influencing key decisions via Gamiotics, a browser-based software that allows you to vote on where the story will go—what characters appear, what experiences they explore, and more.

With a cast of five actors and over 30 playable characters, audiences will experience an expansive fantasy world set in the Forgotten Realms, and face riddles, puzzles, combat, and more, to help shape the story. Laughter will flow like ale and with the audience in full control and exciting reveals around every corner, no two shows are a like!

For those seeking a more daring experience, there are opportunities to join the action onstage and test your strength (or dexterity, or wisdom, or charisma) through a variety of rollicking games, including trivia, charades, and the ever-popular Fantasy Beer Pong.

Featuring behind-the-scenes talent from popular theatrical shows such as Dimension 20, Marvel’s Rogers: The Musical, Beavis and Butthead, and more, Dungeons & Dragons The Twenty-Sided Tavern is the game you know and the experience you’ll love, but bigger and better than ever.

The original experience played sold-out engagements in Chicago, Pittsburgh, and at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Chicago Tribune raved that the show is “a total blast, not least…due to the pleasure of being surrounded by so many kindred spirits.”

The worldwide growth and popularity of D&D has spawned a diverse array of immersive products, content, and experiences including a massive and passionate community of players, expansive maps, countless game guides, live events, streaming shows, an award-winning AAA video game, and a major motion picture–Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

The show opened on Sunday, May 5, 2024, at Stage 42 Theatre in NYC with tickets on sale to November. Head to for more info and tickets!
