Go Experience Sleep No More
Sleep No More is a 3 hour show based on the play Macbeth. The play cycles through 3 times, It ranges over 5 floors of a hotel, the audience members are masked and told to remain silent but can sit in chairs, go through desk drawers, pick up books, eat the candy in the candy store and generally live the life in the McKittrick Hotel. Even if you stay all three hours, you'll never see the whole show because scenes happen simultaneously on different floors. It's weird but amazing. Go with a group but don't stay with your group. Pick an actor, follow them around and watch all their scenes. Spend some time just hanging out in the rooms and reveling in the beautifully designed set. Stay for the end and the final tableau, don't miss the naked bath scene and definitely make time afterwards to have a drink, compare notes with your friends and hear about all the stuff you missed. Sleep No More is one of those things you'll be talking about for months afterwards.
