This experiential theatre show may not be for everyone, but if you are open minded and like to do something a little out of the box, I think it's a must-go for those who live in or visit NY often. Do a little research ahead to understand the background and what it is about (I wish I'd had a little... More

My boyfriend is not at all a theater fan (he found the Broadway show we attended kind of cheesy), but this was his FAVORITE activity in New York City. Our minds were so blown that we couldn't stop talking about it for weeks. Arrive with a curious and open mind, and get ready for a wild ride. I recommend that... More

First off, the set design is impressive. That's the end of the positives. The main problem here (among many) is that they crowd too many people into the show. Even when you do come across a scene being acted, there are so many other audience members around that it's very difficult to get a good view of the action. The... More

I have been to three Punch Drunk productions and Sleep No More once. The first time I went I was blown away. The second time not so much. I don't want to give anything away because the experience is best when you have no prior knowledge. All I will say is that they seem to be letting in too many... More

Wow. Didn't know what to expect with this, given I've never been to anything other than your typical west-end show, but given we were visiting New York, had done the brilliant Matilda the night before, we were looking for something different, so chose this "immersive theatre" option. And, boy, did we get something different. The whole experience was awesome. Slightly... More

If I was to sum up this show in one word it would have to be WOW! My daughter saw the Burning Man production by the same theatre company in London and she was desperate to go to this show. I was a little skeptical mainly because the tickets were expensive and I had no idea as to what to... More

Just go. Once you go in are in a large warehouse set up in rooms/scenes. all attendees wear white masks, staffs wear black masks and the actors don't wear mask. The play is happening around you on different floors in different rooms with different characters.I recommend going early and plan on stay as long as you can to figure out... More

Sleep No More is like no other experience you will EVER have. It is a FULLY IMMERSIVE environment. If you are looking for linear story telling, a program and half priced seats, this is not the show for you. If you are open to losing your identity and being dropped into a strangers bad dream for 3 hours, however, THIS... More

Very stony experience. Disorienting in a great way. Pick some characters and follow them as much as you can. Maybe you should put in a little road work beforehand as it can be physically exerting

We booked the day before on the recommendation of a friend and had an amazing experience. Don't read up too much about this, the less you know, the better it will be.... Have a drink in the bar before and go with the flow! Get involved, explore and follow one or more of the actors to get the experience ...... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
