About Queen of the Night inside the Diamond Horseshoe:
From the late 1930s to the early ‘50s, a vaudevillian spectacle flourished in New York City’s Times Square. Nestled in the basement of the Paramount hotel, the Diamond Horseshoe supper club was a nighttime playground, and an expressive outlet for the city’s theater set. Eventually, the venue shuttered, and has been abandoned ever since—until its doors swung open again for the first time in 60 years on New Year’s Eve, thanks to the Paramount’s owner, developer Aby Rosen.
Christening the stage is Queen of the Night, an immersive theatrical event produced by Randy Weiner (Sleep No More), which began its six-week run on the same night that Diamond Horseshoe reopened. The piece, revolving around a marchesa’s opulent and risqué debutante ball for her daughter, is a dazzler—but the play’s ornate backdrop might be the real showstopper.
“If you stare at anything long enough in here, new details will start to reveal themselves,” says New York decorator Meg Sharpe, who created the layered interiors in tandem with Stonehill & Taylor Architects, creative director Giovanna Battaglia, and scenic and scent designer Douglas Little. The 6,000-square-foot space brims with Old World splendor and avant-garde accents. In the main ballroom, beneath a fiber-optic starry sky, plush banquettes curl up against mirrored walls, while behind the bar, urn-size glass beakers fizzle with mysterious potions. From there guests venture into the series of rooms, which Little refers to as “the Bergdorf Goodman fun house.”
The labyrinth holds a collection of elaborate and interactive sets. Baroque details, optical illusions, and perfumed pillows all contribute to the dreamscape, and as spectators wander through dimly lit hallways and curtains of tinkly shells, Queen of the Night’s actors are never far behind, feeding the fantasy.
