The McKittrick Hotel is hosting a real-life “Clue” party

By David Goldberg

Ah, New York. Another month, another lavish party based on a campy cult classic. For the September 17 edition of its fabulous Supercinema party, the McKittrick Hotel is celebrating the classic murder mystery with The Guilty Party, a bash based on the movie Clue. The McKittrick is known as the home of immersive theater institution Sleep No More, with the Supercinema party turning the surreal production into a late-night rager. In late June, the Sleep No More crew threw a sublime Wizard of Oz party that took pride weekend over the rainbow and beyond. Here's some images from their Great Gatsby party earlier in the year:

The Guilty Party will feature multiple arenas of dancing, outrageous drag and dance performances, photo booths and an open bar. Upon registration, guests are required to declare which character they'll dress as, so you better start prepping your Colonel Mustard 'stache and Mrs. Peacock furs now. Just try not to get as sloppy as your fictional antecedents:

The Guilty Party happens on Saturday September 17 at 10:15pm. Standard tickets are $95 and VIP "Maximilian's List" passes are $150. You can learn more and see pictures from previous parties here
