It was okay at best. I'm not sure why this show got such rave reviews, I was totally un-impressed. I found the English/Chinese subtitles annoying. The show seemed to drag on and on. This certainly is NOT your usual "musical theatre."

While the story concept is very impressive, the execution of the story is boring, over dramatized and left me with no feelings toward the characters as they were... continued

It's not a musical as much as it is an opera, so bear that in mind. Though some of the melodies are lovely, the music is not usually about melody - it's more of an operatic recitative. Theatrical and sincere, but ultimately lacking.

I bought $10 tickets for the balconey, and ended up in the second row in orchestra, so I was pleasantly surprised before the show started. Then I was even more... continued

Excellent voices, acting. Food for thought on immigration. In fact "stuck in the elevator" is one big metaphor for the situation of undocumented workers in this country... continued

This play was based on fact and was creatively done. Unfortunately, we needed subtitles in English as we couldn't understand the sung English and missed some of the plot.

Ugh! I felt stuck for what seemed like more than the 81 hours the delivery guy was stuck in the elevator. I work in this industry and hate to give bad reviews, but... continued

Some parts flew and others fell, a unique concept, and the lead singer's voice was very enjoyable.

Very unusual. Some dialog in the beginning was hard to understand. Before viewing I wondered how someone stuck in an elevator was going to play out. A lot of surprises; an "out of box" experience

Thrilling theater! I would call it an operetta. All the equity actors had trained voices and were fantastic. The sets,music and direction were all of a piece. It was probably the most innovative theater we have seen in the past few years.
