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.

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?
