Sleep No More is an initiative of a British troupe Punchdrunk theater and is being called a big success in NY, with positive reviews from the New York Times, New York Post, New York Magazine and Time Out, among others. The show takes place in an old hotel in Chelsea, renamed the McKittrick Hotel. / Is shown in the Gossip Girl 5 × 07: "The Big Sleep No More" as Chuck's benefit at the theatrical experience.
"Sleep No More" Audience members—participants, really—don white masks before they wander through the vast and spooky McKittrick Hotel...strange rooms of various persuasions from bygone eras, decorated in mind-blowing detail. You explore the building, making your own choices as to what rooms to enter; you happen upon performers in wordless scenes inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth & Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca; experienced in segments—making the dancer/actors pull the audience into the story.
