The actors were very good, especially Julius Ahn, who played the main character. However, at times it was difficult to hear his voice clearly and some of the the story lines were confusing to follow. Rather than have Mandarin subtitles...continued

A very fresh, interesting, and beautifully done show. Cast was great, set design also great, and main character in general performed heroically, singing throughout almost the whole show. Theme and plot also great. Had a few points where the...continued

Charming but not overwhelmingly so. The central character was done beautifully by Mr. Ahn, apparently a trained opera singer who handled the sing-song music easily.

not very engaging, boring although the lead actor was excellent

while it attempts to add something to one man's immigrant experience at times I felt it was trivializing it.

Unique and entertaining! Well done. Better than expected. Guang has a wonderful operatic voice.

Except for Ming the voices were mediocre at most, the music quite dreadful -- elevator music? Neither the desperation of being stuck in an elevator for such a long time nor the desperate situation of undocumented immigrants was communicated well.

Would have enjoyed it more if the super titles were in English instead of Chinese! The majority of the audience are not well versed in reading Chinese Characters. That said, the cast was quite good, voices was adequate. storyline believable.

I was a little worried going in as to how they were going to pull off a musical based in an elevator but I was pleasantly surprised. It was visually interesting from the projected images behind the elevator to the activity on stage. Besides the...continued

I wanted to like this play. I certainly agree with its politics. The performances were good but I thought the music and lyrics needed a lot of work. Even a short 75 minutes seemed long.

Performers/actors/singers were very good, but I felt no empathy with any of the the play's characters as I would have if they had been better developed or more than 1-dimensional.
Given the subject matter, this musical should have inspired...continued

Previews are wonderful! You know the show hasn't officially opened so you always feel privileged to see it before everyone else! The cast was exceptional, especially the lead actor and supporting cast, who were all in fine voice during the...continued

Interesting concept and story line, but I didn't
really find the musical numbers all that enjoyable
or memorable.I found the overall presentation
somewhat chacotic. Even without a intermission, the
play seemed slightly on the long side.
