News is breaking this afternoon that Simon Hammerstein and the Box crew will be taking their show to Times Square for a special 2 week run in late October. Named Purgatorio, the club will operate from October 15-October 31 in the former China Club space (268 W. 47th Street), and according to its website, promises to "offer an interactive Halloween experience unlike anything seen before in New York nightlife. Adults 21 and over will be immersed in a multi-level world of macabre fantasy complete with interactive variety acts and installations, all set in a dynamic environment that is at once frightening, erotic and whimsical." Freaky deaky! Tickets range from $39.99 to $59.99 while VIP tickets range from $59.99 to $79.99 and include two complimentary beverages and preferred access. That is a bargain for us!
Does Purgatorio sound like fun to you? Wait until we tell you the rules of the house . . .
