LIMITED ENGAGEMENT OF WEST END SMASH
NOW EXTENDED THROUGH WINTER 2022 BY POPULAR DEMAND
SPECIAL HOLIDAY SEASON DATES ADDED
New York, NY (November 30, 2021) – The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, announced its limited engagement of Dame Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black – a ghost story in a pub, will be extended through winter by popular demand. Tickets for the New York Times “Critic’s Pick” are now on sale for performances through March 13, 2022. New dates have also been added especially for the holiday season.
The Woman in Black tells the story of a young lawyer who stumbles upon a small town with a grave secret. Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation comes dramatically alive in Robin Herford’s gripping production of Dame Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost novel. The director reunites with actors Ben Porter and David Acton, who both starred in the London stage production, to reprise their roles for this limited engagement in New York.
When this production opened at The McKittrick, it was hailed by Ben Brantley in The New York Times as, “Ingenious! Now is finally the moment for audiences to embrace The Woman in Black.” The show received the “Best Play Revival” Award from the Off-Broadway Alliance and was nominated for 3 Drama League Awards (“Outstanding Play Revival” and “Distinguished Performance” for the two lead actors).
“I am so delighted by the way New Yorker’s have embraced The Woman in Black. We extended our initial run at The McKittrick in 2020 and I’m beyond thrilled to extend it again into 2022.” said director Robin Herford.
First presented as a holiday play at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, Dame Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black moved to London’s West End two years later, and has been enthralling Theatreland audiences ever since. Numerous national and international tours followed over the years.
The McKittrick Hotel provides an intimate setting to weave the story among and around its audience. This site-specific reimagining within a pub marks the first chance audiences have to experience it as originally staged more than 30 years ago.
“An impressive two-hander. Full of jumps and scares—in the most delightful way!”
“Arresting illuminations, darkness and noise.”
-The Daily Beast
“A case study in theater magic.”
“With a superb cast, a cozy venue, and the intoxicating ambiance of The McKittrick Hotel, this production of The Woman in Black is not one you will want to miss.”
