Experience Sleep No More

I had the absolute privilege of experiencing Sleep No More last night. For those that do not know, it's a bit of a concept to wrap your brain around. At the heart of it, it's a contemporary, wordless, retelling of MacBeth set inside a highly curated, immersive, four story hotel. All of the attendees wear masks and are forbidden from speaking.

I've been wanting to attend this thing since it opened many years ago and really built up what it would be like to actually dive in. I can happily report that it was 100% what I expected and it delivered on every level. If you're a fan of the work of David Lynch, Gregory Crewdson, Matthew Barney, the 1920's, Shakespeare, Hitchcock (the space is named after Vertigo's McKittrick Hotel) and.. well.. there isn't a person out there that appreciates art or set design or new experiences that wouldn't absolutely love it. I'm not telling you anything new, just confirming that it was phenomenal.

  • just went to Queen of the Night at the newly renovated Diamond Horseshoe in the Paramount Hotel in midtown. Highly recommend it, its the Sleep No More crew doing a dinner show there. Pretty much Sleep No More meets food/cocktails.
