Flight Extends At The McKittrick Hotel Through April 20th
Due to popular demand, The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, has extended the residency of Flight. The New York Times "Critics' Pick" made its North American debut at the hotel on January 30 and was originally intended to run just 8 weeks. It will now close April 20.
Flight is an emotional and powerful work of art that invites the audience into its poignant story of human courage. Vox Motus Artistic Directors Jamie Harrison and Candice Edmunds created this unique and transporting experience based on British playwright Oliver Emanuel's adaptation of Hinterland, a 2012 novel by Caroline Brothers.
Audiences and critics are captivated by Flight's moving tale and original form of theatrical story-telling. The New York Times called the show "strange and exquisite and intensely affecting," while The New Yorker exclaimed, "profoundly imaginative... gorgeously designed... unforgettable."
Following a critically-acclaimed run at The Edinburgh International Festival in 2017, Flight received the prestigious "Herald Angel Award" before crossing the pond to set down at The McKittrick's performance venue The Heath. The Heath most recently hosted extended residencies of Scotland's At The Illusionist's Table and the 2017 Drama Desk Award-winning The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart.
The hotel's rooftop hideaway The Lodge at Gallow Green (open through April 1) or Gallow Green (opens April 20), as well as jazz speakeasy Manderley Bar are ideal for pre- or post-show dinner and drinks.
Tickets for the hour-long experience are $45, and reservations are available every 45 minutes from 5-9:30pm on weekdays and 2-11pm on weekends. Copies of Hinterland are also available for purchase. Visit https://mckittrickhotel.com/events/flight for schedule and tickets.
