New couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a long date night in the Big Apple Wednesday night.
After catching a showing of mega-blockbuster The Hunger Games, the reality star, 31, and the rapper, 34, continued their evening on the town by taking in Sleep No More -- an interactive, buzzed-about theater experience loosely based on Shakespeare's Hamlet. Favored by celebs like Justin Timberlake and Ashley Olsen, Sleep No More was featured on a 2011 episode of Gossip Girl.
Sans security, the pair stayed "close and intimate as they could," an eyewitness tells Us Weekly of the walk-through production, in which all attendees wear masks for anonymity.
The "Otis" rapper and E! star wandered through the premises without an escort "for hours," the witness says.
Afterwards, West led his new girlfriend to the adjacent Manderley Bar, where they watched a live band, Stella St. Clair, play 40s tunes. "They seemed to be really enjoying each other's company," says the eyewitness.
On Thursday, the pair's NYC adventures continued -- and they were spotted lunching together at Serafina's on the Upper East Side.
In town for a Friday guest-hosting gig on TODAY, Kardashian is "hanging out with Kanye a lot" during her stay, an insider explained. She and West "been friends for years," the source adds.
Single since her painful split from Kris Humphries last October. "Kim is ready to give it a try now" with West, the source confirms.
For his part, West raps on his brand-new song "Theraflu" that he "fell in love with Kim."
