Sleep No More is a fairly hot ticket in New York right now—and a fairly expensive one, too, considering that it’s running way, way off Broadway, in a Chelsea warehouse that the current occupants have styled the “McKittrick Hotel” (possibly in homage to Kim Novak’s hideaway in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo). Yet the comments I’ve been reading online suggest that people go back to see this eccentric riff on Shakespeare’s Macbeth over and over again, despite the cost. That’s because the show is as much a scene as it is a performance. And an evocative scene, at that.
