The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, and Queen of Nightlife Susanne Bartsch are expanding their Bartschland Follies collaboration with new dates and a larger venue. Bartschland Follies will return on four Fridays, May 18 - June 8, at midnight.
The McKittrick combined forces with Bartsch to create the Bartschland Follies - an eclectic and eccentric cabaret extravaganza - where a night at the opera collides with a burlesque circus for a high fashion, madcap and unforgettable entertainment experience.
The doyenne of downtown herself hosts each week with Ziegfeld babe Dee Dee Luxe, drag super star Shequida, and a roster of thrilling performances by NYC club kids and nightlife fixtures Joey Arias, Amanda Lepore, Sherry Vine, Aquaria, Fou York, Dirty Martini and many more. Acts range from musical numbers, strip tease and circus feats to art installations, comedy and contortionists - all presented like you've never seen before.
"It's such an honor be The McKittrick Hotel's newest resident. There is always something outrageous and unexpected at Bartschland Follies," says Bartsch.
Following a sold-out engagement at the hotel's jewel box speakeasy Manderley Bar in March and April, the weekly midnight residency is moving to a larger space with afull-service bar, state-of-the-art staging and capacity to accommodate extra revelers.
Tickets range from $25 for General Admission to $75 for Reserved Seating, and are available at www.mckittrickhotel.com. Doors open at 11pm and all guests must be at least 21 to enter.
The McKittrick Hotel is located at 530 West 27th Street, New York, NY 10001. For tickets, reservations and additional information, visit www.mckittrickhotel.com or call the Box Office at 212-904-1880.
