The HOTEL KNOWS I can't resist its call.
82 times and counting.
It varies. I have seen him in both the tailor shop and the funeral parlor at the top of the show. But 4th floor for sure.
Uh… I’m suddenly blanking on her “reset.”
First elevator, she is at the party scene serving up deviousness on a sliver platter.
But her reset is unclear in my mind…. I want to say she ends her loop in the restaurant.
Can anyone confirm or correct me?
EDIT (to respond to comments)-
The door dance is at the END of the loop, not the beginning— it woudln’t make sense for her to be in that level of conflict with Macduff at the beginning, before all the action is put into motion. Yes, it happens during the Vertigo music, but that isn’t necessarily the beginning of the loop for all characters. The answer to the original question is goign to lie in figuring out where she goes after the door dance.
Does she start her loop by resetting the tent?
Mind blowing and heart melting certainly sounds like Will Seefried. His Porter 1-1 is one of the best things I’ve ever experienced in a Punchdrunk show.
Although there are many performers that have melted my heart and blown my mind.
Yep! While there are a lot of amazing performers in the McKittrick, and I rarely pick favorites in any one role, I have always been very open about my admiration for Nick. He is easily the most intense performer inside the hotel—- quite possibly ever.
I’m glad you brought this up because it gives me the opportunity to discuss my absolutely favorite moment from my last visit that I forgot to mention when I wrote about briefly here. That night was mostly about watching Leslie’s Sexy Witch, Jesse’s Speakeasy, and Tara’s Hecate (none of which I had ever seen before). Since I wanted to secure a good spot for The Sexy Witch post-rave solo, I watched the rave from that side of the room, which is unusual for me— I usually stand closer to Hecate as I love how the different Hs “puppet master” the proceedings. Toward the end of the rave, when Macbeth (Nick) is up on the table, he does this extreme back bend, and I was standing directly behind him. Between the lighting, and the blood all over his face the most astounding effect was created where his upside down face looked like a creepy-ass right-side-up face— his big beard on top like a big bushy head of hair, his long bloody hair hanging down like a beard, and his blood covered face with his tranced-out eyes blinking out, seemingly looking right at me. It was SO FUCKING INTENSE!
You just need to give your name. They have a complete list every night.
There is definitely 1 scene that has definitley become more crowd-controlled, yes— Lady Macduff and Macbeth’s confrontation in teh hotel lobby. They now hold people out of the space entirely, which they were not doign when I first started seeing those show— at least not as far back.
Banquo and Macbeth in the Speakeasy has always been very controlled, as have the interrogation and the rave. But I don’t think there are others that have so much rigid wrangling.
Of course, there may be a little bit of variation from black mask to black in smaller scenes.
By and large, I find they do a really great job of directing the crowds for those scenes.
They have a largely thankless job, so next time you are there, hug a black-mask. (But maybe wait until the manderly to do it.)
