BWW Review: An ELEVATOR Ride Provides an Emotionally Uplifting Experience for Seven Strangers
by Shari Barrett - Apr 17, 2017

When traveling between floors on an elevator, how often do you look around and react to strangers, wondering who they are or what they do for a living? And if you guess, what percentage of the time will you be wrong? Such is the challenge presented by the hit 2010 Hollywood Fringe Festival play ELEVATOR, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and playwright Michael Leoni, based on the original short film Someplace In Between (an Official Selection of the 2009 LA Shorts Film Festival). The play originally premiered at the Hudson theaters during the first annual Hollywood Fringe Festival. After a wildly successful run, the smash hit expanded to the Hudson Mainstage Theatre and then the Macha Theater, receiving 11 nominations including 'Best New Work' from Broadway World as well as 'Critic's Choice' and 'Best Bet' from the Los Angeles Times. Now is your chance to catch it at The Coast Playhouse in West Hollywood through April 30. (more...)
