To A Place That Felt Like Home

Date Written: May 11, 2024 Written By: Dana Lynn

I will never forget the feeling of stepping into the McKittrick Hotel for the first time. I always say I wish I could bottle up that feeling and keep it with me forever. Though I found this show fairly recently, it has come to mean so much to me. I have never felt any piece of media change me the way Sleep No More did. It felt like someone took my personality and made art with it. Traversing the show felt like walking around inside my own brain. It’s such a beautiful, visceral experience that I will never forget. It has left a mark on me and will always have a place in my heart. While it’s hard to say  goodbye, I will carry with me the confidence that I’ve found. I’ve learned to push myself even when my goals feel scary and uncomfortable. Sleep No More helped me learn to take risks and follow my instincts (fortune does favor the bold, after all), and for that I’m eternally grateful. Thank you to all of the staff and performers for putting together and running an amazing show for all these years. I wish I found you earlier, but I’m grateful to have experienced it while it was here. Congratulations and best of luck to everyone involved! You are all so talented and I know you’ll do amazing things in your futures! Thank you McKittrick for the life-changing experiences, lessons, inspiration, and magic. You will always live on in my dreams and memories. It’s been an absolute honor and privilege to haunt your halls. Thank you. <3
