Founded in 2015 as a theatre troupe, JFI had a vision to create fully-realized worlds, brought to life by memorable performances. With shows like the critically-acclaimed large-scale flagship haunt CREEP L.A., intimate and twisted sold-out murder mystery dinner experience THE WILLOWS, and wild disco dance party NIGHT FEVER, JFI is at the forefront of boundary-pushing original storytelling.
CREEP L.A. intertwines nuanced and in-depth shocking storytelling with hands-on audience interaction, fostering emotional connections and unforgettable moments. Equal parts beautiful and terrifying. Since 2015, Creep has been selling out its runs while reaching an audience of over 20,000 and receiving rave reviews for its groundbreaking approach to the genre. Utilizing 8,000-15,000 sq/ft spaces, upwards of 30 cast members, and a creative team with diverse backgrounds, Creep LA has solidified its place as LA’s go-to Halloween event.

Guests find themselves players in a modern-day psychological mystery, as they dine and mingle with the Willows family in a sprawling 10,000 sq. ft. macabre mansion. Interacting with a household of bizarre characters, guests unearth secrets and discover where the strange family’s loyalties truly lie. The Willows sold out 300 performances, and due to unceasing demand, will be remounted in 2020.
