New York, NY – The McKittrick Hotel (530 W 27th Street, New York, NY), home of Sleep No More, announces details of Carnival des Corbeaux, the follow-up to last year’s Halloween festivities at The McKittrick. The Carnival des Corbeaux begins on Friday, October 26 and runs for six consecutive nights, each night having its own costume theme to which guests will be asked to strictly adhere. Each night of the carnival commences immediately following that evening’s performance of Sleep No More, which will—on those evenings only—offer audience members the enhanced experience of touring The McKittrick in costume prior to attending the Halloween festivities after the show. Tickets to Carnival des Corbeaux will be sold both as a package with Sleep No More or separately, allowing guests not attending the show to still join the party afterwards. Tickets go on sale Thursday, September 27.
