Following performances at New York's iconic Zipper Theatre, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and in more than a dozen cities from Miami to Santa Fe, Dan Guerrero's ¡Gaytino! now comes to Los Angeles. This musical solo show is Guerrero's onstage memoir of sorts, in which he tells of his remarkable life journey from the streets of East L.A. to Broadway, and back west again to Hollywood. A father/son relationship and a treasured boyhood friendship drive this 75-minute autobiographical play through decades of Chicano history and the gay experience from a unique and highly personal perspective. Guerrero brings his two fascinating worlds together in riveting fashion -- from mariachi to Merman, from Sondheim to Chavez. Learn More

Very entertaining, well acted, clever stage set-up that could have been a bit more claustrophobic but was innovative nonetheless and gave the feeling of real movement. The characters were interesting and well acted, if somewhat preachy when we hear their inner dialog. There were actually moments where the crowd gasped in reaction to what was happening on stage! Overall a show definitely worth seeing.

Read Goldstar member reviews from _Elevator_’s run at Hudson Mainstage Theatre.
Elevator, written and directed by Michael Leoni, with original music by Mario Marchetti, is based on the original short film, Someplace In Between, (an Official Selection of the 2009 LA Shorts Film Festival).
When seven strangers get stuck in an elevator, it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out. Laced with musical sequences and a cinematic style, Elevator is a comedic and emotional ride into the human psyche.
A Female CEO, Business Man, Office Temp, Hot Girl, Musician, Maintenance Man and Goth Girl. When forced together, given nothing but four walls and each other, these archetypes prove to be anything but “typical.” Their preconceived notions, stereotypes and judgments are challenged at every turn, as one by one they shed their masks and reveal their truths.
Elevator asks the fundamental question: Who are you behind closed doors?
