The show was well-directed, acted and staged. However, I don't think there was enough
meat in the underlying story to carry the play.

awesome performance. very innovative in combing opera style singing with hip-pop; very smart stage design and great story telling as well; brought the story of an often ignored population under the stage light. highly recommended

Liked it, didn't love it. Conceptually an interesting piece of theatre. It's "just right" if you pay a Goldstar ticket price.

The show is delightful, original and timely, heart rending. However, the seating in the mezzanine at ACT is awful, no leg room, the rows are much to close together.

Really interesting premise and then to put it in musical form...It is sad to think what this man endured because he was an illegal. This play definitely had us talking for a long time afterwards...

The ACT theater is beautiful! This was an interesting play and I enjoyed the music. Very cool that it was based on a true story.

Great seat......except for the whole rows and rows of little old ladies that are not there to watch the theatre, rattle their plastic water bottles and talk REALLY loud (because they can't hear themselves......) otherwise the performance is...continued

It's not good for a musical/opera to have bad music and lyrics. Not "bad" in the sense that we didn't like them, but bad in that the quality was poor. Let's put it this way: the rap numbers were the best, and we don't generally like rap. The...continued

The very entertaining play lasted one hour and twenty five minutes without intermission, which is a testimonial to the outstanding ability and versatility of the cast. As an Asian, with a grandparent that immigrated to the United States from...continued

The play was very cleverly done. Subject matter of why he didn't call for help was right on the button. Fear of discrimination and retaliation prevents one from taking action. Beautiful singing by all actors. Very realistic. Enjoyed it very much

This was a truly unique show! With minimal set change and few characters, it was mesmerizing!

Wondered how they were going to be able to make a show out of being stuck in an elevator, but was pleasantly surprised by the work. There were some parts where the pace/music dragged, diction was not always clear solely due to where the lead...continued

Fabulous entertainment - this should have a GREAT run off broadway and all over the country. Hope it does well. The actors were terrific and the 75 minutes went by all too quickly.

It was a very difficult play to watch, in view of the subject matter and the fact it was based on a true story, and very timely considering the immigration issues. The main performer's voice was beautiful and haunting. It's not easy to play that...continued

Bryan Au Yong's captured the immigrants' stories perfectly.

Stuck Elevator was definitely a...unique musical. Though it was hard to keep the eye trained on sometimes monotonous staging (namely one guy in a dark elevator), the cast was absolutely stellar, and the message and illustration of the...continued
