FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, PLEASE
THE McKITTRICK HOTEL ANNOUNCES
NEW YORK’S MOST ENIGMATIC THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE
SLEEP NO MORE
NOW EXTENDED TO SPRING 2020
A LEGENDARY HOTEL. SHAKESPEARE’S FALLEN HERO. A FILM NOIR SHADOW OF SUSPENSE.
New York, NY (October 15, 2019) – The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC) announces its enigmatic theatrical spectacle Sleep No More is extended into next spring. Tickets are now on sale through May 3, 2020.
Presented by Emursive, Punchdrunk’s Sleep No More is an award-winning theatrical experience that tells Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Macbeth through a darkly cinematic lens. Audiences move freely through the epic world of the story at their own pace, choosing where to go and what to see, ensuring that everyone’s journey is different and unique.
The story unfolds through an awe-inspiring blend of acrobatic choreography, film noir soundtrack, and 100 rooms of densely detailed atmosphere sprawling over 100,000 square feet of space. The elements intertwine for a subversive and intoxicating 360-degree sensory immersion.
During their stay, guests also enjoy live music, stiff cocktails, and an expansive wine & spirit list in the hotel’s velvet-draped speakeasy Manderley Bar. Signature drinks include The Old McKittrick and Sleep No More namesakes and special absinthe concoctions.
Originally built in 1939, The McKittrick Hotel was intended to be the finest and most decadent luxury hotel of its time. Six weeks before opening, and two days after the outbreak of World War II, the legendary hotel was condemned and left locked, permanently sealed from the public.
Until Emursive brought the Grande Dame back to life, reinventing the legendary space in collaboration with London’s award-winning Punchdrunk theater company.
Sleep No More’s creative team features Felix Barrett (Direction and Design), Maxine Doyle (Direction and Choreography), Stephen Dobbie (Sound Design), Beatrice Minns (Design Associate), and Livi Vaughan (Design Associate).
Sleep No More is produced by Emursive (Jonathan Hochwald, Arthur Karpati, and Randy Weiner, principals) in association with rebecca gold productions. Emursive produces immersive theater in extraordinary places.
Performances are offered seven days a week. Champagne Table and Maximilian’s List upgrades are available to enhance the experience with exclusive access, reserved seating in Manderley Bar, and chilled bubbly.
Sleep No More is but one of The McKittrick Hotel’s many curiosities. Located in West Chelsea near The High Line, Hudson Yards, Hell’s Kitchen and the Meatpacking District, the property offers a plethora of entertainment options for tourists and locals alike. From year-round rooftop hideaway, Gallow Green, to late night entertainment in Manderley Bar, and The Club Car – currently home of Bartschland Follies and Speakeasy Magick – there are many reasons to visit.
