Andrew Boynton on how Susan Marshall’s newest work, “Play/Pause,” captures “the isolation that can result from our longing to be noticed and to control our stories in a hyperconnected world”: http://nyr.kr/18BeU7x

Check out what SNM alum Ching-I Chang is up to lately. It’s some really fantastic stuff!
After a laborious two-hour-delay-ridden journey to the Paddington area of London I made it to Temple Studios. Although I was 40 minutes late I was just happy I managed to get there. The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable was my game and I wasn’t going to let any train problems stop me. After the jump you’ll find a spoiler-ridden tale of what happened. What I saw, who I was with, what I feel like happened, and why there was blood everywhere. You will also find a mini-thesis on the ever-tiring comparison between the two currently running Punchdrunk productions; the other being their smash hit Sleep No More which is currently running at the McKittrick Hotel in New York City. So click through and find out!
I am looking into ordering some tickets. Is premium worth it? What are the benefits like? Should I bother, or should I just get the regular?
… On my very first trip to the McKittrick Hotel …
… During my very first adventure in Sleep No More …
… During my very first one-on-one experience ever …
… I WAS POPP-ED!!!
This brings a whole new definition to losing your snm virginity. How did I not realize this sooner? It’s been over a year for Christ’s sakes. God Bless William Popp.
Looking to go, but I want to know if its worth it. How are the food offerings/prices? Is it fun during lunch hours still? Do they still have the complete ambience?
The Sleep No More tag has been filled with smart people talking realistically about the show and what its future may entail. I love every second of it.
P.S. It is really good at tiding me over until I am able to go to the show again!
I cannot wait to go back at some point this summer for at least my 4th time. I am starting to crave the stimulation again! Anybody know how to curb the addiction until I can see the show?
Yes, the only way to describe a Sleep No More experience is to categorize it as a movie of sorts. Because in all actuality, it’s not just a theatrical experience, but a cinematic one as well. My third trip to the McKittrick hotel, in the sleepy part of Chelsea, was one that was supposed to be the end for me, but as those haunted halls do, it is drawing me in more than ever. Thursday January 3rd represented the start to both a new year with Sleep No More, and a new year for myself as a person. I went having had the Bald Witch tell me the last time that the third time was going to be the charm. And to be completely honest, I had planned on it being the last until I turned 21. Watch out ahead for some spoilers.
Will anyone be there?
I’ll be the one in the studded bow tie! Come say hello, I’m flying solo!
