    The moment you cross the threshold you enter a waking dream. But who's? It's been months since I first experienced sleep no more and I'm still not entirely convinced I ever left.

    A lot of people say wearing glasses is a problem, but if like me you can't wear contacts don't worry. You'll be fine don't miss out. And remember to not hold hands - split up and go your own route.

    Follow MacBeth (black actor) around the end there is a crazy scene with witches and strobe lighting, blood ritual, nudity and techno music. Jaw-dropping scene.

    Wear comfortable shoes or take the heels off as you run. Make eye contact with the actors and you might get brought to some v secret experiences. Mind. F*cked.

    My favorite NYC quirky experience, amazing interactive show, great fun to explore, participate and wonder. Excellent 3rd or 4th date place if your girl has not been :)

    Macbeth meets Tower of Terror with live actors, and you walk around for as long as you can stand. Don't read any other comments/spoilers- prepare to check your bags- and explore solo for special...

    Outstanding interactive theatrical experience. Just do it. Try not to bring anything but ID and credit card; you will need your maneuverability. Don't be afraid to be overdressed, but dress comfy.

    What an experience! You won't be able to explore everything and follow every actor during the three hour time slot, but be open to forging your own ghost-like path throughout the McKittrick.

    Sleep No More is an unforgettable experience that's well worth the money. Be prepared to be split off from the group that you come with - the best way to experience it is alone.

    Went here to see Sleep No More. I am not gonna tell you more otherwise I'll spoil it for you. Just go! Do it! Buy the earliest ticket available and go in alone. It's frightening but worth it.

    Incredible experience! I was stumbling around at first, but then saw the actors, and everything changed. It reminded me of a scavenger hunt for new clues and for actors. Amazing place and play!

    One of the most exhilarating experiences I've ever encountered. Absolutely loved Sleep No More. Don't hesitate to open drawers, steal candy, and leave your group/partner to explore the place alone.

    Ladies, do not wear high heels. You will be climbing and sometimes running up and down stairs. I went with a friend and we got separated early on. This is a GOOD thing! Don't be afraid to go it alone.

    Love this show and the venue is amazing. Make time for drinks at Manderlay bar. If you love film noir, old crime novels, and period productions.. Come here and be part of the show.

    Friday nights feature a burlesque show hosted by Queen of Nightlife ⭐️Suzanne Bartsch⭐️. Expect nudity, dirty jokes, jugglers, drag-queens,circus artists and other degenerates 👏🏻

    Awesome and absolutely wonderful experience, nothing even to compare with. Throw away all you Broadway tickets and get there!

    Hands down, one of the coolest experiences I've had in New York. Shakespeare meets "Eyes Wide Shut" meets a 1920s speakeasy. Don't let the actors talk you into absinthe shots, whatever you do.

    This is the home of Sleep No More...but there are other shows and venues inside and on the rooftop so be sure to check throughout the year for what is available.

    Definitely an experience! Get lost in 5 stories full of different environments. Even a ballroom! Stick with a character or you'll be lost. Little dialogues would had been nice.

    This act was really interesting, however when you continue following the actors around wearing the mask you might feel a little weird, until you experience a disturbing illuminati ritual.

    If you're going for the 1st time, don't do any research. Go in with as little knowledge as possible and just enjoy the experience. Then plan your next visit, because you'll have to do it again.

    Sleep No More is an awesome experience. Make sure you separate from your group. It's a lot more fun exploring on your own and being able to follow the scenes you want.

    Sleep No More a surreal interactive experience. They try to make it intimidating but it's not scary, just eerie. Tip is to follow some of the actors but good luck understanding the silent narrative.

    Mind-blowingly awesome. Can't wait to go again! A MUST-see. Incredibly exhilarating. If you go w a group split up in pairs or explore alone. Be bold. And move quickly.

    The food his I great, well made and tasty. The drinks are great as well, unique specialty drinks that keep you coming back for more.

    The set is flat out incredible. Don't be afraid to touch props, open doors. It's all there to explore and they haven't overlooked a single detail. The performance is less acting & more dance/movement.

    Don't wear heels, and don't bring a purse - you'll have to check it at the door. The bar and music are great!

    Totally amazing experience. I highly recommend following the actors (if you can keep up) and let yourself go. Definitely don't be afraid to interact and be apart of the show, you won't regret it.

    If you go with a group, DO NOT try to stay together. It's best to have individual experiences, compare notes afterwards. Don't bring your phone in, don't check the time, don't try to see everything!

    The Friday 6PM show is a great start because it isn't packed! As everyone checked in through 7, fanning yourself and shoving each other became normal

    Front-load your exploration (totally worth it, try every door!) but be sure to start following the actors in the second hour. There is some stuff going on that you do not want to miss.

    To get pulled into one-on-one scenes, stay as close to the actors as possible and keep your own body language open (no crossed arms, for ex). So worthwhile!

    Just find Macbeth and follow him everywhere. The details in interior and props is amazing.
  • Arminda G.
    Make sure to skim the MacBeth Sparknotes if you're not familiar with the play, it will make the experience richer (and help you determine who to follow!) - a completely unique experience!

    Take your time and make sure to re-visit rooms you've already been in. Scrub up on Macbeth before you go. You can't possibly see it all in 3 hours, so make sure you go back!

    Probably the single most ambitious production I've ever seen. Amazing sets and cute actors, but even those who are experts in the Shakespeare play will find this hard to follow.

    If you want to see the rave scene, it's on the 4th floor. The room is at the end of a long, very narrow hallway. If you see the three witches on that floor, stock with them and they'll lead you there

    Amazing amazing show. You have to go at least 2ce! Make sure to open drawers explore all angles and open books. Run after the people with no masks, be aware of your surroundings.

    It's virtually impossible to follow the plot. And to rub it in your face they try to sell you their book for another 20$, so that you understand "how the individual scenes fit together".

    If watching Sleep No More, don't return to the bar before going to the lower floors too. I missed the ending. Doh!

    Don't try and stick together as a group. This is a solo adventure and it's obnoxious trying to navigate around couples holding hands walking around. You paid $95 for the ticket just go enjoy it.

    Separate from your friends! It's easier to run after people and you can share your unique experience later. The red witch is my favorite - we got some one on one time and it was unforgettable!
