Extends Sold-out Run at The Coast Playhouse in West Hollywood

Tickets Going Fast!
(Los Angeles, CA April 25) ELEVATOR—the celebrated play written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and playwright Michael Leoni—extends its popular West Hollywood special limited engagement at The Coast Playhouse through the end of June. ELEVATOR, a comedic and emotional ride exploring what happens when seven strangers get stuck in an elevator, opened on March 25 and has been met each night with enthusiastic sold-out crowds, lines of people wrapping around the theater and continued critical acclaim.
“We are thrilled with the amazing response we’re getting from LA audiences once again,” said Producer Michelle Kaufer. “ELEVATOR was clearly meant to live at The Coast Playhouse!”
Along with the extension, ELEVATOR welcomes new cast members: Zack Carter (Rob Reiner’s LBJ, ABC’s “General Hospital” and “Grey Anatomy’s,” Showtime’s “The L-Word”) as the Business Man; Vivi Thai (Borderland, Door to the Other Side) as the Goth Girl; David Schocke as the Musician; and Amil Johnson as the Maintenance Man. They’ll be rotating roles alongside the previously announced original cast featuring Devon Werkheiser (Nickelodeon’s “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide”) as the Musician, William Stanford Davis (Showtime’s “Ray Donovan”) as the Maintenance Man, Deborah Vancelette (FX’s “Terriers”) as the CEO Woman, David Abed (Blue Man Group) as the Business Man, Karsen Rigby as the Hot Girl, Erica Katzin as the Temp and Kristina St. Peter as the Goth Girl.
When seven strangers get stuck in an elevator, it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out. 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. Laced with musical sequences and cinematic style, ELEVATOR is a comedic and emotional ride into the human psyche and asks the fundamental question: who are you behind closed doors?
Written and directed by Michael Leoni, ELEVATOR is 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.
