SLEEP NO MORE Has Gala Reopening Night At The McKittrick Hotel

Last night, on Valentine's Day, the highly anticipated return of Emursive presents Punchdrunk's Sleep No More celebrated its Grand Reopening Night in high style at The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC).

The evening's festivities began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by hotel residents, complete with a revelrous brass band. Following the evening's performance, the producers hosted a Reopening Night party with a special performance by New Orleans' legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band and dancing in The Club Car. Cocktails and a dinner buffet were also served on the hotel's winterized rooftop, The Hideout at Gallow Green. The lights went out in the wee hours of the morning as the last of the evening's guests checked out.

Presented by Emursive (Jonathan Hochwald, Arthur Karpati and Randy Weiner), Punchdrunk's Sleep No More is an 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. The show is New York's long running hit in its 11th year and is regarded as the leader in immersive theater.

Originally built in 1939, The McKittrick Hotel was 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 More is produced by Emursive (Jonathan Hochwald, Arthur Karpati, and Randy Weiner, principals) in association with Rebecca Gold productions. Emursive produces immersive theater in extraordinary places.

Performances are offered on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7PM, Fridays at 7:30PM, and Saturdays at 3PM and 8PM. Tickets, priced from $99.50, are now on sale.

During their stay, guests may also enjoy live music with cocktails, wine & spirits in the revelrous Manderley Bar.

Tickets are also on sale for the "dazzling" Speakeasy Magick and final performances of the acclaimed The Woman in Black - a ghost story in a pub. Visit www.mckittrickhotel.com for a full schedule of events.

Guests are welcome to dine at the hotel's winter rooftop, The Hideout at Gallow Green, before or after the performance. Visit www.mckittrickhotel.com/gallow-green for menus, reservations, or to customize a private gathering.
