The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC) announces its provocative theatrical spectacle, Sleep No More, is now extended through the summer. Tickets for one of the New York Times’ most memorable experiences of the decade are now on sale through September 13, 2020.

Presented by Emursive, Sleep No More is Punchdrunk’s 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.

Originally built in 1939,The McKittrick Hotelwas 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 Moreis produced by Emursive (Jonathan Hochwald, Arthur Karpati, and Randy Weiner, principals) in association with rebecca gold productions. Emursive produces immersive theater in extraordinary places.

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 venue offers a plethora of entertainment options for tourists and locals alike. From year-round rooftop hideaway, Gallow Green — currently home to The Lodge and Speakeasy Magick, to late night entertainment in Manderley Bar and The Club Car — currently home of Bartschland Follies and The Woman in Black, there are many reasons to visit.
