sleep no more

 

“Sleep No More” is a site specific, modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth put on by Punchdrunk Theatre Company.  The play is performed in the McKittrick Hotel – 3 linked warehouses in Chelsea that have been gutted and installed with a maze of rooms to explore and witness events unravel in front of you.  Veering away from the traditional stage performance, the “Sleep No More” experience is one that is reminiscent of a “choose your own adventure” book you would read when you are little.  All spectators wear Venetian style masks, keeping their anonymity [from eachother and to the actors], as they wander from room to room.  There is no set path.  There are things going on everywhere simultaneously, different characters to follow around, and every person will come out having their own unique experience.  I’ve included a video from Cool Hunting’s behind the scenes look as some of the sets.

I’m going to see it this Saturday.  I can’t wait!

hey boy

“Hey Boy” by The Blow

 

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

A. You’re gay
B. You’ve got a girlfriend
C. You kinda thought I came on too strong or
D. I just wasn’t your thing
no ring

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

When we sat outside for an hour at the party and talked
I thought something good could be starting
It’s not a lot that I want
just some talking
and really, you just injured my pride

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

Susan said that maybe you’re scared
Shelly says there always is a reason
and Chris said you’re probably surrounded by girls and I’m just not one of them you’re needing

 

true affection

“True Affection” by The Blow

I was out of your league
And you were 20,000 underneath the sea
Waiving affections
You were out of my league
At a distance that I didn’t wanna see
Down to the bottom

I wanted a junction and often there was one
You’d surface face first and we’d share our thought bubbles
And I still believe in the phrases that we breathed
But I know the distance isn’t fair to cross

I was out of your league
And you were 20,000 underneath the sea
Waiving affections
You were out of my league
At a distance that I didn’t wanna see
Wanted you nearer

Your depths made a pressure that punctured my works
and all your fluids couldn’t tolerate the force of my thirst
I love the place where we shared our tiny grace
But because it’s real doesn’t mean it’s gonna work

I was out of your league
And you were 20,000 underneath the sea
Waiving affections
You were out of my league
At a distance that I didn’t wanna see
Wanted you nearer

And true affection floats
True affections sinks like a stone
I never felt so close
I never felt so all alone

I was out of your league
And you were 20,000 underneath the sea
Waiving affections
You were out of my league
At a distance that I didn’t wanna see
Wanted you nearer

Tried this place out last week. Relaxing way to pass the time during a lazy afternoon. Outdoor space and beautiful weather was definitely a plus.

Mermaid Inn is the best! $1 oysters during Happy Hour is the best treat with a glass of wine and some fries. Just tried their Lobster Mac & Cheese tonight. Seafood and comfort food hit the spot tonight. They have a couple locations around Manhattan and the happy hour special is everyday from 5pm-7pm.

Also love the Fortune Teller Miracle Fish you get with your check! Haven’t see one in ages.
