Michael Leoni’s Celebrated Hit Play
Opens Tomorrow Night, Saturday, March 25
at The Coast Playhouse in West Hollywood
Special Limited Engagement Through April 30
(Los Angeles, CA March 24) Returning to Los Angeles after a successful premiere in 2010 at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, the hit play ELEVATOR, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and playwright Michael Leoni, comes to West Hollywood for a special limited engagement at The Coast Playhouse (8325 Santa Monica Blvd.). ELEVATOR opens on Saturday, March 25, through Sunday, April 30, 2017.
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?
The cast features Devon Werkheiser (Nickelodeon’s “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide”) William Stanford Davis (Showtime’s “Ray Donovan”), Deborah Vancelette (FX’s “Terriers”), David Abed (Blue Man Group), Karsen Rigby, Erica Katzin, Kristina St. Peter and Tyler Tanner. The creative team includes scenic and lighting designer David Goldstein (Off Broadway’s Soul Doctor, Stalking the Bogeyman, Ghostlight) and original music and sound designer Mario Marchetti (who has collaborated with such artists as Demi Lovato, JoJo, Black Eyed Peas, Jennifer Lopez, among many others).
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. Michelle Kaufer and Laura Hill produce the new engagement. The creative team also includes Ovation Award-winning costume designer Michael Mullen (Celebration Theatre’s The Boy from Oz, DOMA Theatre Company’s Dreamgirls) and makeup designer Linda Michaels.
