Elevator Repair Service completes its staging of a trilogy of classic American works with The Select ( The Sun Also Rises), a staging of Ernest Hemingway's novel. A stage littered with liquor bottles and cafe chairs transforms seamlessly from Paris cafes to Pamplona streets.

Hemingway's dry wit, a doomed romance and even live bullfighting (as re-imagined by ERS) make this a compelling conclusion to ERS' exploration of modernist American literature of the 1920's.
