Reliving the Past

The history of the Hotel Chelsea comes to life this weekend as English Director James Veitch's "Room #103, Hotel Chelsea" takes the stage, er, suite. 

The performance takes place inside a suite at the famous hotel on West 23rd Street and explores the history of one of New York City's most well-known artistic havens. Veitch transforms the actual room #103 into an intimate stage. (For the more morbid, Room #103's bathroom was the scene of the murders of Nancy Spungen and Sid Vicious.)

The show focuses on the life of addiction-addled poet and writer Dylan Thomas and invokes other famed hotel guests such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Arthur Miller, Janis Joplin, and others.

Due to the small performance space, tickets are limited. All tickets are $18 and can be purchased here. Performances take place tonight through Saturday at 7:00 and 9:00 PM.
