New York, NY – In an effort to satisfy demand for access to the otherwise sold-out evenings, Sleep No More will be granting exclusive access to its Halloween Masquerade After Parties (immediately following each Halloween Masquerade performance) by putting After Party-only tickets on sale for each of the five evenings. As previously announced, from October 27 through October 31, Sleep No More will host a series of specially themed evenings at the McKittrick Hotel (530 W 27th Street, New York, NY). Each of those nights will be shaped by its own unique concept, and will feature its own After Party. The After Parties, taking place inside the McKittrick Hotel, will feature various DJs and surprise guests over the course of the week-long event.
After Party Tickets are priced at $25.00, and will go on sale this Wednesday, October 26 at 12:00 p.m. (noon) via www.sleepnomore.com.
