Time Out says

Step into a gothic fairytale with this decadent immersive show from Shotgun Carousel, the makers of 'Divine Proportions'. Grimm heroines Snow White, Red Riding Hood and Beauty (of 'and the Beast' fame) will be in appearance, alongside glamorous turns from dancers, singers, and circus artists. Staggered ticket prices mean that you can eat a full three-course feast (£45-£70) or just watch the cabaret show and soak up the atmosphere (£10-£25).

Boring show, plot between the rooms didn't make any sense as a whole, complete story. Immersive? Not at all, rather cheap and mainstreamy, topped up with terrible radio music killing all the magic. On top of that they had some sound issues when we got into on of the rooms. We were all asked to leave and go back into the main room, where nothing happened for 30 min. People and actors seemed confused about the whole thing. Plenty of mistakes on actors side too. The aerial dancer got tangled into the rope in the air, burlesque lady got her stocking attached to her trousers resulting in her struggling to take it off (had to ask member of audience for help)! Show was supposed to last for 3 hours, but with all the interruptions it only took 1 hour - at the end they just got everyone into the main room and played pretty crap mainstream music, to which people were supposed to dance? I didn't however pay for a dancing event, but for magic, immersive theatre. Only production side definitely deserved the attention, but it wasn't enough to give a show even 2 stars. I'm very disappointed with this show, which was supposed to be my birthday present. I very much loved previous immersive shows I saw in the Vaults, but Red Palace was a total disappointment not worth a single penny.
