In 2016 The Know theater of Cincinnati commissioned HTL! to create an H.p. Lovecraft inspired immersive theatrical event for their season
Part walking tour, part haunted house, and part theatre, The Other Rhine took sold-out audiences through The Mockbee and Reliance Metal buildings in Cincinnati’s Brewery District, in an immersive story that blended truth and fiction, revealing the horror that lurks beneath the streets of Cincinnati.
It began with a simple invitation…
"Join us for the Bring Bellevue Brewery and Beerhall Back tour! Our Executive Director Scott Kaufman will lead you on a journey back into Cincinnati history to learn about brewing and the intriguing story of those who made beer at the old brewery.With your help, we can bring the Bellevue Brewery back to its former glory!"
However, the adventure turned out to be anything but simple and culminated in a warehouse shaking blast of cosmic terror.
