Creations & Press
“Gives voice to stories that would otherwise be lost.”
“Weller’s powerful, lyrical script at once captures the desolation and despair of Hart Island as well as its beauty…”
“A profound meditation on what New York City and the rest of the world has gone through in the past few years: a spectrum of emotion from abject grief to acceptance.”
“This theatrical event should be seen and heard both for its expansive intellectual reach and its extraordinarily immersive empathy.”
—Theatre Reviews from my Seat
“Mason Holdings’ haunting Hart Island epitomizes downtown, avant-garde performance at its best: cerebral, theatrical, scrupulously researched, and bursting with heart.”
—Theatre Is Easy
“Powerful and Beautifully Staged.”
—The New Yorker

“… surreal and hallucination-like… you need to book tickets for Consumption immediately.”
“…outstanding performances…. I felt like a witness to someone else’s life, one that I just dropped into.”
“We’re all witnesses to a fever dream—one that gets stranger and stranger over time…. Mason Holdings takes audiences on a wild ride through a somewhat true story.”
“The performances were captivating…”
Performed by Devin Burnam & Tracy Weller, with scenic design by Christopher Swader and Justin Swader & lighting design by Daisy Long

“If your taste is more experimental than established, check out this new movement-theater work from the Mason Holdings theater company and the writer and performer Tracy Weller”

“an ageless, Russian doll-like specter; a white rabbit, of sorts, leading us into the labyrinth of her own memories and distorted reflections”
“the experience is about as intimate as theatre gets”
“an immensely watchable performance mostly due to the infallible Tracy Weller who’s mastering of the numerous characters is nothing short of absolutely astounding”
“a spellbinding performance that begins full of whimsicality and gradually drifts into corridors quivering with madhouse echoes.”
“An exquisitely immersive set design coupled with an eerie and uncomfortable performance makes this piece of downtown theatre haunting and intriguing”
“Within a few seconds, it is easy to forget that you are in a theater and instead feel as if you are a guest in a private home.”
“the show is creepy, perverse, and even a bit morbid. That’s my kind of holiday show, but if you’re looking for It’s a Wonderful Life, you’re not going to find it here”
“if you’re an adventurous theatregoer, Holiday House intrigues. Weller’s performance is spine-chilling and riveting. Justin and Christopher Swader’s set design is a triumph. Zach Blane’s lighting and Phil Carluzzo’s sound complete the immersive experience.”
Written and performed by Tracy Weller, directed by Kristjan Thor, scenic design by Christopher and Justin Swader, created and developed with Bixby Elliot.
