Located at The McKittrick Hotel in New York, expect an out-of-this-world experience as you enter into this enchanting hotel with its very own history.

A Reinterpretation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth with a Twist

If you are familiar with the Shakespearean classic Macbeth, you are certainly in for a treat with Sleep No More. This award-winning and world-class production exceeded our expectations as we undoubtedly luxuriated ourselves in this multi-faceted yet intense performance delivered by the entire cast.

Whether it was a budding romance or a ploy to attain dominion in a power struggle, we were enraptured through and through by the actors. Their passion was so palpable in every movement, so much so that we could feel it even at a distance from the actors. The twist in this retelling of Macbeth was such that you could follow the story development of the character that you are drawn to.

Be sure to witness a few gasp-inducing moments especially during the climatic build-up of a couple of emotionally charged scenes that further engulf you into this multi-sensory play.

The Silence Says it All

While we were used to the auditory element in our theatrical shows, the silence in Sleep No More came across as a breath of fresh air. We were all the more captivated and engrossed in the narrative; as the absence of audible dialogue made us appreciate the beauty of body language while being up close and personal with the characters.

An Immersive Theatrical Experience Like No Other

Sleep No More is truly the definition of a multi-sensory and immersive film experience, in its own right. You can expect to move from room to room for the story to unravel in ways that are very personalised and unique to each of the film-goers. There are several vantage points at which the play manifests so you would not get bored easily.

Although there are three loops in each showtime, we encourage you to stay on till the end for the complete and ultimate enthralling experience. The next time you land in New York, Sleep No More has to top your list for a decadent night out at the theatre.
