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 would love to meet up with some people, and get a drink possibly!
Had such a great time at First Date tonight! Such a fantastic musical! Laughed so hard! Zachary Levi was amazing! #firstdate #broadway #theatre #longacre #newyork (at The Longacre Theatre )

Is it worth seeing? General opinions/reviews?
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?
#throwbackthursday @brenderbee and I clearly having some trouble stage managing a mushroom #tbt #k4k #theatre
I’m very worried because I can’t buy tickets yet, for Drowned Man, because I do not know what my England schedule is going to be like. The tickets seem like they are selling out real fast too. I hope the show extends at least once, so that I can go to the show when my schedule is set.
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.
I finally finished my decorated mask from Sleep No More. It’s the mask I have from my first visit. It is covered in different shaped and sized mirrors. I’m sure everyone will find there own deep meaning between the use of mirrors and Sleep No More.
Okay so it has been about a week and a half since my second Sleep No More visit. Unlike many people, where if you don’t catalogue your experience immediately you forget it, I prefer to think about it for a while and dissect the little nuisances of the things that I saw. This took me a while because my second stay at the McKittrick Hotel was a rather fruitful one. I had the immense pleasure of going with a decade old friend and some of her new friends whom I have never met before. I don’t plan on going into much detail, because I think my night is a very personal experience, but there will be light to moderate spoilers ahead so WATCH OUT!
