Stuck Elevator is an interesting, brave attempt to tell a story that is not often found in American theater. Focusing on the life of Chinese deliveryman, who is stuck in an elevator for 81 hours, the play sheds light on a person that is often...continued

The seats were not all that great--too far over to the left side!!! Wish you had
a way of showing a seating chart to show where the available seats are located.
We did enjoy the performance.

This is the third Goldstar event I have attended. I loved it! All of the events have been a unique experience. My grandson, who is 17, attended with me and he really liked it as well. It is incredible to see how much they do with so little...one...continued

This musical cleverly addresses immigration, racism, loneliness, and pride. Though the protagonist is Chinese, the emotions apply to all people.

Wonderful show. Brilliant performance and great voices from all actors. Very telling expression of the immigrant experience, which any immigrat ethnic group can relate to. Pleasantly surprised to have found a much better show that I had anticipated.

Ambitious trying to make the center of action one man in an elevator. Appreciate the challenge, but the show needs work. Performances great.

Bold, thought-provoking, poignant musical with creative staging, great singing and acting. Though there are touches of humor, this is not light entertainment--it is provocative and enlightening about the immigrant experience. Goldstar orchestra...continued

Even though the actors had great voices, the material they had to work with was lacking. The potential for a great drama was there, but it felt flat, almost painful to watch at times. There were a couple of very good songs... Literally a couple....continued

I enjoyed the efficiency of ordering tickets through Goldstar. Prices were a bargain and the assigned seats were good. Thanks.

I loved this play! I found it very moving. The actors had wonderful voices.
Thank goodness I speak fluent Spanish so I could understand those lines; I believe
they may have been translated into Chinese, but not into English. My husband missed...continued

Interesting the way all the music was weaved into the theme of the delivery man being stuck in the elevator as it deals with the bigger issue of what it means to be an immigrant in the US.

It needs a good editor and more consistent performances. Some voices are very strong some less so and some should have speaking parts only. Unfortunately, the very good parts were outnumbered by unnecessary parts and those parts seemed to have...continued

maybe worthwhile for kids, but the lyrics were so simplistic and childish that i spent half the performance with my jaw agape at how silly the whole thing was. i wanted to like the concept, and the singers were talented, but as anything other...continued
