An 11:11 Experience‘s production of ELEVATOR, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and playwright Michael Leoni has been playing to sold-out crowds with lines wrapping around The Coast Playhouse nightly.

When seven strangers—a CEO Woman, Business Man, Office Temp, Hot Girl, Musician, Maintenance Man and Goth Girl—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?

"In ELEVATOR, seven strangers get stuck together in an elevator between floors, and it's only a matter of time before the truth comes out as each of them struggles to come to terms with their captivity. 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 that asks the fundamental question: who are you behind closed doors when you think the end is near?"

"I fell in love with Elevator at Fringe 2010, loved it even more in its Macha Theatre transfer later that yeare, and love it more still at the Coast. Michael Leoni’s emotionally moving, highly satisfying thrill ride is better than ever, and likely to keep audiences riveted to their seats for months to come."

 ELEVATOR RETURNS TO L.A.

BY RYAN LUÉVANO

Award-winning filmmaker and playwright Michael Leoni’s hit play Elevator returns to L.A. for a limited run at The Coast Playhouse. The premise is simple: seven strangers are trapped in an elevator. However, what ensues is a stimulating experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat. In both presentation and writing. Elevator bridges the elements of film and theatre into a piece that strikes a fine blend of both worlds. "
