Apparently, Benjamin Netanyahu Has A Thing For Masks

Benjamin Netanyahu has attended two showings this week of a theater performance that requires audience members to wear creepy masks, Page Six reported. The Israeli prime minister, in town for the UN General Assembly, seems to have a predilection for immersive theater productions put on by the McKittrick Hotel, which include the show “Sleep No More.”

Netanyahu attended a performance of that show last year as well, according to Page Six. One anonymous audience member told Page Six that Netanyahu “was seen running around … with a frantic energy” and “diverting his security detail as he got caught up in the show … becoming an anonymous audience member behind the signature mask.”

At this week’s performances over 80 security personnel were on hand to attend to the prime minister — a mix of US and Israeli agents.

At dinner after the show, the prime minister apparently rubbed shoulders with surf-rocker Jack Johnson.
