Instead of having the traditional divide between the stage and audience, Sleep No More is a living piece that invites the audience to immersive themselves in the story.
The story of Shakespeare’s MacBeth comes to life in this film noir adaptation, although you’ll have to know that’s where the inspiration is pulled from to see the connection.
Upon arrival you receive a mask that you’ll wear throughout the show. As the story unfolds you’ll be drawn to certain rooms by characters walking through, each with a different storyline to follow. No two people will have the same experience, and most groups that attend the show together will go in different directions once inside.
This experience was created by British theater company Punchdrunk at the McKittrick Hotel, and demonstrates a unique take on what a show can be. The show can last up to 3 hours, depending on your pace moving through each room. This experience is an absolute must for anyone in NYC.
