After performances were suspended due to the pandemic, The Woman in Black will reopen to scare more audiences in New York. The Woman in Black is at the McKittrick Hotel from October 21, with an opening night on October 24 and performances to Jan. 30, 2022.

The site-specific adaptation of The Woman in Black imagines the ghost story in a pub, and is directed by Robin Herford. Speaking about the show’s return, Herford said: ““I am thrilled that New York audiences will again get to experience our production of The Woman in Black.

I am particularly excited to take the show back to how it was originally staged for its world premiere in Scarborough - an intimate space which brings the audience up close and personal with the action.”

The Woman in Black will reunite actors Ben Porter and David Acton, who starred in pre-pandemic performances. They were both nominated for Drama League Awards, and The Woman in Black was nominated in the outstanding play revival category.

The Woman in Black was first staged in Scarborough, England, before transferring to the Fortune Theatre in London in 1989. The Woman in Black is currently the second-longest running play in London.

Other shows at the McKittrick Hotel include Sleep No More, with performances starting October 4. Find out more about Sleep No More
