5 Things to Know About Queen of the Night
Some folks from Sleep No More
and The Box are up to some no good called Queen of the
, a kinky dinner-kidnapping theater inspired by Mozart’s final opera. It’s happening at the
Diamond Horseshoe, a legendary old nightspot, and it starts on NYE.
We’ll keep the surprises surprise-y, but here’s a taste.
It’s sorta inspired by The Magic Flute...
... and involves a very dark debutante ball. And the world’s foremost (also: only) French S&M German-wheel
performer. And some Tony winners. And a guy who can literally jump to the ceiling.
... and possibly some creative moisturizing on your part.
Just... you’ll see.
Cocktails from a mad scientist’s lab.
The bar is a literal series of tubes.
They’re everywhere. There’s smoke. There’s booze. Your drink travels through a network of beakers and
passages all around you. Then into a glass. Which is convenient.
You may be abducted before the meal.
You’ll be chatting up a date, and then you’ll
be gone. Trust us—this is going to go well (read: morally questionably) for you.
Dinner’s on spikes.
Short rib from the people behind American Cut and Scarpetta is
served in massive cuts on a tray of metal spikes. Your chicken comes in a birdcage. But, you know,
We’re your new best friends.
If all this is a little confusing for you, yeah. It
should be. Which is why we’ve secured some VIP tickets for you with UD Perks
, so you can just experience it for yourself.
We love you, too.
