Sleep No More – my second experience – lastly
The end of my night was a blur.
Here were some of the more lucid moments…
Most Suspenseful :
Everyone held their breath as Malcom lathered up Duncan for a shave…perhaps the closest he ever gave…
Most Aha!-I’ve-Seen-A-Photo-of-This! :
Mad Lady Macbeth sat in a bathtub, after being undressed by the nurse.
Most Rapid Transition from Adorable to Unsettling :
The taxidermist stitched close a teddy bear (aww) and laid it in a crib surrounded by headless dolls (creepy!).
Most Spoiled by the Theater Program:
I met scorchedthesnake. Instead of striking up a normal conversation, I tapped him on the shoulder, gave him a coin, and ran away. I’m not usually this awkward in real life, I promise!
“Come quick! Look at her dress!” One of the coat checkers called to the other, before handing me my coat. Frequent revisitors probably got greetings all the time, but I felt super special.
My second Sleep No More experience was SPECTACULAR!
I had an amazing time bombarded by all sorts of surprises.
It was a significant improvement on my first trip.
Now the question is…should I go back?
Hell to the YEAH you should go back!
I’m so tempted…but it’s kinda far…. T____T
Actually, when-strange-becomes-normal sent me a message last night, and refined what far means.
I have so much respect for people going huge distances to see the show.
I guess my question was rhetorical. I completely knew Malcolm was played by Zach from your drawing, although I had never seen him in that part. It’s a testament to your talent!
My brother has been here from Phoenix 4 times (seen it 6). He is coming next month and will be seeing it 6 times in 4 days.
Wait! Was Zach on as Malcolm? That drawing looks just like Zach!
I don’t know the actors, but according to scorchedthesnake’s Number Twenty-Four: “ZACH MCNALLY [W]AS MALCOLM!!”
I have a feeling that you’ll be compelled to return, Sleep No More “has you” now.
Speaking of which, did you encounter Hecate? I was hoping to see your artistic rendition of the woman in red…
