It's absolutely the best cultural experience I've ever had. It's not really a show; rather, it's immersive theater or theater where you can explore the sets (on 6 floors) and see 22 dancers performing interpretive dance for 2 very loosely related plays. Advice: learn as much as you can about the shows and the performance before going in, there's too... More

What a crazy night! Bring ID, you'll need it before entering. Couples are divided up, everyone is divided up and given masks to wear. Then you walk around the performance space exploring costumes and props. You're able to get very close to the actors. Select one, or a few to follow around for the night. The performance was unlike anything... More

It reminds me of a meal that cost a lot so one must have enjoyed it. I hate to be a kill joy but I did not enjoy it at all. The thought and design of the rooms etc. were well thought out and orchestrated, but alas $85 is a bit too much to enjoy walking in a dark place... More

Words cannot do justice to this production. Best show in NY, hands down. Be brave and interact with the actors, get close to them and pick your favourite to follow around the Hotel - they will notice and pull you into scenes. I did not want to leave and cannot wait to go back and do it over again, several... More

Very unusual and somewhat difficult to grasp at first concept, but this show consisting of multiple performances moving around a vast building grabs you like nothing you have seen before. The actors perform a fantastic blend of drama (with no words spoken), slow-motion pantomime, ballet and dance - moving up and down multiple floors and stages, all meticulously designed. You... More

First stop, 1930 s night spot - hot band great singer. Next stop, insane asylum bed ward - empty. Next stop, old time hotel lobby - deadly assault in progress. Next stop, pool hall card room - massive fight between friends. Next stop, private suite - lady taking a bath. This review may seem like a series of non sequiturs... More

Go as a group and do not stay together. Compare notes immediately after the experience. Seemed to have good entertainment in the Club where you end, but the room was already full when we got there.

I went with two others to NYCs Sleep No More. We were immediately split up, which was terrifyingly awesome. It happened several times through the play, but we always found each other. The set was AMAZING! I was so impressed by the feeling each room gave, and how well the characters acted. My complaints were that I continually ended up... More

"Sleep No More" is one of the most interesting, unique, and captivating experiences I have ever had. The experience is completely immersive and is unlike anything else you'll find--it's a bizarre and perfect cross between a haunted house, a film set, and interactive performance. It's so cool it's not worth spoiling here, but some notes as follows: It can be... More

Firstly, note that this is not a play, but rather an odd take on interpretive dance. Was tricked into going for it after hearing it was an adaptation of Macbeth and that you could follow various characters and that they would interact with audience members to add to the story. For USD $100 i was very disappointed. The best part... More
