Am I the only one who wants to punch the screen when people say the performers “mime” scenes from Macbeth?!
I picture the Porter in white face point doing the mime tug of war, or feeling an invisible wall.
I appreciated your last question but it’s one that I really don’t want to answer publicly. I don’t want to be the one to open that can of worms.
I will say that I really don’t know that I have much insight into most of it though.
If you want to message me NON anonymously, I’d be happy to have a private discussion about it.

Yeah, I didn’t even know that she was playing that part until recently, and I only pray I will have the chance to see it!
That particular 1:1 is pretty unsettling, and I’ve seen it done several different ways, particularly the ending. There is definitely an OMFG factor there, and I’m sure Cat’s expressive eyes take it right to the edge!
How about we have badges made:
”I Saw the Far Superior Boston Production.”
“I Saw the Far Superior 2011 Original NY Cast and YOU DIDN’T!”
“This is such hipster bullshit.”
“Commercial = Irrelevant”
Everyone who wants to make sure that we all know that THEY were there for the beginning or how passé it is can wear one. Then they won’t need to proclaim it so loudly online any more.
I’m sad for the people who don’t enjoy it any more. But, wouldjacommon?!
I think I might be the luckiest little boy in the world! A few months ago I lucked into being in the audience when Cat DeAngelis played her first night at Bald Witch (which was also the same night that Zach debuted as Boy Witch) and I fell in love with her the moment I laid eyes on her. She is absolutely stunning, and had mastered the witchy side-glance that casts the spell right out of the gate! It’s like she was just born into her stride, and needed no warming up period to develop the role and make it hers. It was there right from the start.
Last night I got to witness her debut as Danvers, and again: Perfection! And something completely different than all the other Danverses (what’s the plural of Danvers?) The 1:1 with her was one of the creepiest things I have experienced since Stephanie Eaton’s Nurse Shaw 1:1 or my first Taxidermist 1:1 with Jeffery Lyon way back when. Cat is just an astounding beauty in the first place, but her eyes! OMG her eyes! And she knows how to use them to full effect. She really gave good face, and I can’t wait to see it again.
So now I’m tight with our sly and obedient Catherine Campbell/Danvers— I call her Cat.
Oh, and Marika still doesn’t like people to tell her to calm down. (Welcome to the double digits. And, Girl, bring Terry back with you next time you come. I miss his face. And his tattoos.)

To answer that question, I will just share this post that appeared on the SNM tag today:
Sleep No More… Oh my god. Legitimately one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. Never has theater been so immersive.
Followers, If you live in/ever visit New York, I urge you to skip the lame Broadway remakes and head straight to The McKittrick Hotel. You won’t be disappointed.
As long as new people are discovering the show and having this reaction, all of arguments about the show losing its impact are moot. For people just now seeing this show, they are not comparing, say, Cat to Kelly, or Zhauna to Careena, or Will to Matty. For these folks, Tim Heck IS their Banquo, Erik IS their Macbeth.
I truly believe that the problem is not as much with the show itself as with the people who expect it to always have the same impact as it did that first time. The experience changes, so as a repeat visitor you have to change your expectations if you want to get something fresh out of it.
As for an end date: NO. Please don’t speak of it.

I have, and I really enjoyed it. It probably won’t go down in the annals of greatest literature of all time, but I truly enjoyed it, and could definitely feel the influence of SLEEP NO MORE on the author.
