Apparently, The Hudson Hotel Has Rooms Big Enough to Hold 20 People
We'd say eight normal people MAX could stand in this queen room at the Hudson. Ten if you are using models.
The long-standing joke/gripe about the Hudson Hotel in New York is that the rooms are coffin-sized. But starting on Wednesday, the hotel will prove it can fit up to 20 people in a room as director Travis Chamberlain stages Tennessee William's 35-minute play, Green Eyes inside one of the guest suites.
The two-actor play about a newlywed couple honeymooning in New Orleans will run from Jan. 5-23, 2011. Here's a Playbill.com description of the play:
He’s an impotent soldier, traumatized by his participation in the war; she’s a ravenous woman determined to satisfy her most deviant desires. In a single electrifying scene, Green Eyes restages the horrors of war as an unhinged lovers’ quarrel, exploring the disturbing subjectivities that exist in the grey areas where sadomasochistic desire and domestic violence overlap."
Yikes! No word yet on whether the audience has to stand or sit.
If you want to check-in for the play, the Hudson is offering rooms on their website for just $159 a night from Jan 5-7 for a standard double
coffin bed. This also includes free wireless internet and continental breakfast daily.
You can splurge a little more for room and book a superior queen coffin, er, bed at $179 a night. Interestingly, a one-bedroom business suite is going for $319 a night. Wonder how many people that room fits. Just remember to use code SPLIMI to book and get the free WiFi.
