Story

What Is the Story of Sleep No More?
Sleep No More re-imagines the classic Shakespeare play Macbeth as if it were unfolding in a glamorous 1920’s hotel. The original Macbeth story follows a Scottish general who is visited by three witches and told he shall one day become king. After the witches present their vision, Macbeth and his wife murder the king in an attempt to secure the throne—and are haunted by their deed.
 

Should I See It?

What Is Sleep No More Like?
Sleep No More is very different from most theatrical experiences in that the audience does not sit in a seat and watch the performance onstage. Five floors of the McKittrick Hotel have been converted into a giant performance space. Audience members enter wearing Venetian masks (to keep their identities a mystery to performers) and are free to investigate the dozens of rooms as they please. The many rooms are elaborately designed, and the various spaces include luxurious bedrooms, a fancy hotel bar, a psychiatric ward, a stable, a forest and more. The actors roam the hotel (sometimes individually and sometimes in groups) to perform different scenes. Audiences are encouraged to follow different actors and watch the scenes unfold in any order. Guides are available to help audience members if necessary.

Is Sleep No More Good for Kids?
Patrons under the age of 16 are not admitted to Sleep No More. The performances feature simulated sex scenes, full frontal nudity, violent fights, staged murders and other graphic images. Some may find parts of certain room’s interior design frightening due to images of headless infant dolls, graveyards and more
