Launched in Washington, D.C. in 2016, Tradition Be Damned Immersive (TBD) is the first company to bring large-scale immersive theatrical experiences to our nation’s capital. In a city widely known for discord, TBD is using an innovative and interactive art form to offer up new opportunities for empathy and engagement.

We take stories and bring them to life, transforming original narratives into three dimensional worlds, where audiences go from passive consumers to active participants.

This active participation gives them agency to break through the barriers we build in everyday life and form deeper connections, both to each other and the themes presented in the work. Participants are both safe to explore and challenged to step outside their comfort zone.

Our experiences—whether epic theatrical productions or customized corporate workshops—are designed to spark discussion, inspire growth and ultimately lead our participants to find new paths to empathy and understanding.

It’s more than just a ticket; it’s access to another world.
