A good review from Baf's Guide to the IF Archive: "A genuinely creepy game. Spend the night trapped in an abandoned theatre, accompanied by a variety of spooks and nameless horrors. Has an interesting two-layered plot: as the game progresses, the building's history is revealed by the pages of an old journal you find scattered about. Lots of hidden passages, solid (but not unduly hard) puzzles, and an adaptive hint system. Inspired by the short story The Ghosts of the Lyric, the entire text of which is available in the game via the help menu." A wonderful modern IF classic that is a must-play for everyone.
