Last night I went to “Sleep No More” in Chelsea.
If you’re into 1930’s medical ephemera, Macbeth, masks, taxidermy, wandering around by yourself in the dark through 1930’s hospital wards and barely lit forests, I think you’ll love it.
It’s an entire 6 story building and you can explore the whole thing. If you go, in order to see the entire Macbeth show, latch on to an actor and follow her throughout the building…eventually you’ll see almost every scene.
Everyone wears masks. It’s like David Lynch meets Eyes Wide Shut meets Broadway…and you get to wander six floors of an intricately designed set. You can touch and explore everything. In fact, it’s encouraged.
Natalie Portman was in the crowd right next to me all night. But I had no idea, she was the masked pregnant one.
